Two nights ago I dreamt I was pregnant. Like 8 months pregnant. This is funny now because I am SO not pregnant. In the dream I was freaked out because I didn’t remember getting pregnant and I was a bit scared and nervous. Luckily, in real life, I am not the one who had a baby.
Meet my new nephew, Ryan:
He is wearing the oh-so-soft green angora booties his favorite Auntie (me) made for him and he is holding Bubby made for him by my talented but without blog sister Kara. He is about 2 weeks old now and is so small and sweet and smells good. It is hard to imagine him growing up. Life is a beautiful thing.
On to my knitting. I have been in a bit of a slump. I don’t know if it is busyness or laziness but I haven’t gotten a whole lot done. A couple nights ago I decided to check out a bunch of blogs online and all of a sudden I was excited to knit again. Just like that. It is amazing how inspiring the knit blogging community is. So I casted on for Paula sleeve #1 and I am almost done with that. With the holiday I am going to try and get this sweater done.
I am looking forward to Thanksgiving. My sisters and I are dining out. Should be fun and very stress free although I think to some degree I will miss a big family thanksgiving. Mainly I will miss my Mom and Dad, especially when I have to pay for dinner (he he, just kidding Dad.) I am really just excited to be with family and not have to be at work for an extended period of time. I love the holidays. Perhaps on Friday I will start decorating. So so fun.
I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving. I can tell you one thing I am thankful for.

Awww – he’s gorgeous – and the booties look fab too. (And isn’t he a clever boy, clutching onto his bubby already – well done Ryan.)
He is so sweet! Baby booties alone are enough to make me baby hungry, and yours look great! Congrats to the mom!
I really like those fuzzy booties! They are adorable. I’m sure that Bubby will be loved, too.
Okay…okay…maybe I’m finally ready to take up this knitting thing…if it can spontaneously create a cute little bundle like Ryan.
Well done, Aunt Erin. Well done.
The booties are precious, but not quite as precious as your nephew. Welcome to Ewetahknits!
