If you are reading this on Facebook, it might seem strange that I was talking about Alice as if I hadn't mentioned her before or posted pictures.  However, I am actually writing this at, my blog, which I've been crap at updating recently.  Somehow, a while ago, I linked things so these posts show up as FB notes, and I have no idea how to change it.  So, there you have it.  I'll have a real post again soon.

We've got a new addition

 Since my last post, Alice was born.

Hi, I'm here!
She was due December 3, and I had a C-section scheduled December 2.  She came November 23.  She was 9 lbs 1 oz and 21 inches.

Cuddling with Mommy.
Margaret checks out the new addition.
 Margaret has been a good big sister and likes to help... when she feels like it.

Hanging out on the lovely blanket from Nan.
Alice had her 4 month check up on Wednesday and weighed 16 lbs and was 25".  I can't believe she's only four months old, it seems like she's been here longer than that.  She's a sweet kid and pretty easy, which is good.  She loves Margaret and watches her like a hawk.

I can still get in a little spinning and knitting time, although there isn't much to show for it, yet.  This is some BFL top I spun with a short woolen draw.  Almost two hundred yards.  It is a bit warmer and less grey in color than it photographs.  It's not perfect, but I'm pretty happy with it.  I loved spinning it, it was so silky.  Right now I have a lovely Polwarth on the wheel, colorway Hoarfrost.  I'm trying a worsted draft and hoping it will be about a heavy fingering weight when plied.

Oh, I did sew a dress for the Waldorf doll I made Margaret.  I'm pretty impressed with myself since it is not my forte.  I am planning on getting back to blogging a bit more often, so I'll post a picture next time.  And more recent photos of the girls.
