babies born, older folks die

well within the past 10 days 2 'kids' that I know have given birth. They really aren't kids but in comparison to myself they are. So the baby knitting began. First the baby kimono pattern in the Mason Dixon Knitting book. It's finished but needs blocking and 2 buttons. Perhaps tonight... And I also made for the same baby a coordinating

Umbilical cord hat from the Stitch n Bitch book
Yarn: Bernat Organic Natural Cotton
Color: Oasis
Needle: US7 dpns

better pictures to follow paired with the sweater.

I still have to make another sweater and hat for the 2nd baby but that will be in green.

The head custodian for my school district was killed in an automobile accident Friday morning. Doesn't seem real. His memorial service was this evening and it was SRO... a true testament to the kind of guy he was. RIP Jay.

I finished the back of dad's vest. Kind of took the armhole and shoulder shaping to my own liking. I hope I took enough notes to replicate it on the front. At least the shoulder shaping. And yes! there will be enough yarn :-)

off to bed... this daylight savings time change is killing me!

Cute baby hat :) DST is killing me to, but I must say it's nice for it to stay lighter later :)
