This is my newest grandson, Nicholas Ryan Myers Jr.
He was born at 1:01 a.m. on March 28, 2009.
He was 5 lbs 10.6 ounces and 18 1/2 inches long.

I was so fortunate to be there when he was born.

He is so cute and such a sweetheart!

I knitted this Baby Feet cloth for him.

I used Plymouth Yarn Fantasy Naturale.

I have had this pattern saved for some time. I finally had a reason to make it.

I have a list of things I want to make for him. Just need to finish up a few other things first.

These three cloths are Cloth of the Week patterns. They were all pretty easy to knit.

This one is Garden Lattice. It's the pattern for 7-13-08.

I used Peaches and Creme Light Sage.

Fancy Hat Knit Dishcloth.
Bonus pattern for March '09.

I used Peaches and Creme Delft Blus

Diamond Half Drop

Pattern for 1-19-09.

I used Peaches and Creme Daisy Ombre.

I do have more dishcloths to add but when I was down loading the pictures, it seemed like there was so many of them. I get them organized and there wasn't that many. Oh well ..... guess I'll add them next time.

Now, back to last Christmas .....

I made these sets up for my kids for Christmas. They also got some home made jam, jelly and relish.

The first set is for my daughter, Melonie. The second set is for my oldest son, Bryon and the third set is for my youngest son, Nic.

My kids have standing orders for the Scalloped Hot Pads. They can't have enough of them. These hot pads are really nice and thick. I have literally made hundreds of these. Guess if you find a good pattern, you stick with it.

The Baked With Love cloths is a Rachel van Schie pattern.

The I Love You ASL cloth is a pattern by Amy-lynne Mitchell. I changed the boarder on these to a seed stitch boarder.

These cloths are very special to them. When they get in the car to leave, I always give them this sign.

I enjoy cooking and trying new recipes. I want to share a few of these with you. I'm not sure where I picked these up at but we enjoy them. I hope that you enjoy them too!
