Any day now . . .

Last Sunday, Kim, finally able to be up and around after several months on bed rest, came into the shop where we presented her with a blanket for her soon-to-arrive baby boy. Squares were lovingly knit by shop staff and friends of Knitch and sewn together and bordered by Nell. So now we are all ready and Baby Boy Nickels, sometimes known as "Pumper", seems to be in no hurry at all! What's for sure is that when he does make his grand entrance, he will have a huge entourage of "aunts", "uncles" and "cousins" eager to welcome him and share in the joy.

Lois is all wrapped up in Ysolde Teague's Damson made from Malabrigo Lace weight.
