I went to the doctor today for my one week post-op appointment. He said everything looks like it should. That's good news.

Sunday I finished the baby bib that goes with the washcloths.

Cute, huh? I took them with me to my appointment today to give to my doctor for his as yet not born baby. Funny thing happened, though. Apparently the baby is . . . as yet not conceived. Seems I was misinformed. Oh well. He has other small children so maybe they will be able to make use of them.

The Daisy Sweater in Pictures

Saturday was Courtney's baby shower so now I can show ya'll the pictures of the Daisy sweater.

Stats: Rowan Calmer in Coffee Bean, Size 6-9 months, Ceramic Turtle Buttons

I opted not to add any embellishments because once it was all done, I really loved it with just the turtle buttons for decoration. It is simple and clean and I think he will be able to wear it as an everyday kind of sweater. I have been pretty much asleep since last Wednesday so I haven't gotten to talk to Courtney and see if she likes it so I guess I will have to let you know. For some reason that I cannot explain, that picture of the back of the sweater is determined to upload sideways. Sorry.

Aww sweetie, I hope you're starting to feel better. I know the recovery from your surgery must really really really SUCK!!!

I had to giggle about the yet unconceived baby. hehe How thoughtful of you! And how funny to get a baby gift when you're not expecting.

And so what ever happened about the ducky thing you're wanting to make? I didn't try looking at the pattern but if you really want one and can't get a pattern to knit, I'll be glad to crochet the thing for you. I'm sure it's adorable. :)

Love the bib and cloth set. How cute. You just put the crank to the Doctor to get going on another baby! ;D That's funny!

Very cute little sweater. You did a really good job on it.

That story about the bib/cloths is too funny! Ah, well, what do you do?

The little sweater is adorable. You did a nice job. :0)

TOO funny your story about the doctor! I'm sure he was surprise - though maybe you helped motivate him?? LOL. I love your daisy sweater - and I think you were right not to add embellishments. The turtle buttons are perfect :)

That is a lot of effort for a non-baby. I can't believe you let him keep the gift. I would have taken it back....but then again you are nice....sometimes. =)

Courtney said...

I LOVE the sweater and so did Patrick. The buttons are too cute and Damian will look very handsome in it!! Sorry you weren't able to be there and call me when you can. Everytime I call you I wake you up and I feel bad :(

That is funny about the not yet conceived baby, but oh well....the doc did your surgery, so maybe that will get you some good karma!!
