Violet, Sylvia and Some Knitting

Little Violet went home from the hospital a few weeks ago. She met all of her goals for release and is doing lots and lots of sleeping, eating and pooping at home now.

Jamie is recovering and I am sure she is happy to have everyone under one roof again.

I visited recently to hold Violet and hang out for a bit. Growing is exhausting, so there were big yawns and lots of sleeping happening.

She has grown a lot, but is still teeny, tiny.

When I was holding her in my lap, she made this face and then let out a giant, vibrating poo. Apparently this is normal and didn't phase Jamie. I found it to be shocking, so Jamie got a good laugh at my reaction. I decided then that it was time to hand Violet back over to her mama.

Plus, this little one had a birthday recently and I had brought a gift for her to open.

I think she liked the popsicle molds and the book the best, but I also knit her something.

When Jamie was on bedrest before Violet was born, I visited her and hooked her up with some yarn and a pattern. Jamie had never knit a garment before and, since she was at my knitting mercy with the bedrest and all, I took the opportunity to bully her into a sweater knit-a-long. She is knitting Violet a sweater from the same pattern I knit Sylvia's sweater. Eventually, they will be able to have sort-of matching sweaters for cheesy photo opportunities.

The sweater I knit is detailed on Ravelry. Jamie is making her version out of Malabrigo. Yum. The pattern is called In Threes and I recommend it if you are looking for a simple, versatile little sweater. I added stripes since I was knitting from stash yarn and needed to stretch the yardage a bit.

I raided my button tins for some mismatched vintage plastic buttons. The word on the street is that Sylvia is a fan of pink and purple, so hopefully she will wear this.
