Today is the day little Dominic was supposed to be born, but already he is nearly three weeks old. He is doing really well, is more alert and has started to put on weight, we just need to clear the jaundice up now. Recommendation for that is plenty of sunlight, but for now we are making do with daylight...

He is already getting into the swing of knitting. Here he is clutching at the supersoft Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk Aran I am currently knitting into what will be a fabulous 'nursing' cardigan for myself (one side of the cardigan extends over the shoulder as a wrap, which I thought would be very discreet...)

I can't wait to get my hands on the new PolarKnit yarn from Canada we have just ordered. Made from 100% Polartec fleece, it'll be just the thing for making chunky hats and scarves for this cold weather...

New Beginnings

It's only 3rd Jan, and already its been a rollercoaster beginning to 2009, starting with the unexpected early arrival of our baby boy, Dominic, who chose to make his dramatic entrance to the world on Boxing Day, 4 weeks earlier than anticipated. Thankfully despite this all is well, and we are gradually settling back into a 'normal' routine, and sorting out all the baby things that we thought we'd have time to organise during the first two weeks of January!

Here is baby Dom at 1 day old, wrapped in a supersoft baby cashmerino blanket knitted for him by Nanny.
