A Nice Surprise

After running errands and picking Paisley up from school I came home to a nice surprise in my mailbox the other day. I've been used to the usual bills and such, but not anything really good. The envelope was address to me and was sent by Robyn from Knit & Purl Mama. What could it be? :-)
As soon as I got Paisley into the house and we got undressed from outside, we opened it together. Inside was a cute card that read "Congrats on another girl! Please send girl power our way. We find out soon. Hugs, Robyn" and 2 identical diaper vests (one in 0-3 months and the other in 3-8 months). She and her husband are also expecting their second child about a month after us. I just wanted to send out a huge thanks to Robyn because it really made my day getting that, so thoughtful of you and aren't they ever cute??

I'm still plugging away at my mom's socks. I've completed one sock now and I'm onto the next. With Ron being gone with his new job, it seems like I've had plenty of time to knit and I'm still managing to keep the house somewhat tidy as well. A friend at work also asked me if I could knit her a sweater for her son who will be born sometime in March. I sent her a few patterns to choose from and she chose the Easy Baby Cardigan from Knitting Pure & Simple. I can't wait to start this project!

I've also been doing a little reading, I got the book with a Palmer's Cocoa Butter gift pack that was on clearance at Shoppers last weekend. We've been talking about names and we have a few that we like but nothing we've solidly decided on. At least we're agreeing on names this time. :-)

The shirts are so cute. I'm excited about another girl... double the girl power! Sock looks great too... I've found a lot more time to knit but that's because I'm not doing ANY housework....

Well, I didn't get any pink power this time, maybe next time. More blue it is for me!

You are SOOO very welcome. Bills in the mail SUCK! I agree!
