Thank you dear friends for your loving wishes. We are doing well and settling into a new life with a new baby.
There has been a flurry of activities (naming ceremony of baby M–i.e. when he was officially named ‘M’ and wore his new kurta and the tiny pajamas made by my friend, and raksha bandhan where N tied a rakhi on M and then got one for herself at school). And, then there have been plenty of visits from friends and family, all here to see the baby. So it’s been a pretty nice and hectic time!
In the midst of this, I have even got a tiny bit of sewing done. The tee-shirt is from recycled knits and the pattern is a free one from Danamadeit. The tutorial is excellent, especially if like me you continue to be a bit nervous around knits. Finally I figured out how to attach ribbing to the neck, and though I did not do such a great job of it, it is no fault of the instructions but mostly my currently tired self. Right now I couldn’t be bothered with redoing the stitches, and I’m happy that it is done and wearable.
The sun hat is from an Liesl Gibson’s book. N was badly in need of one since she lost her last hat and I hope this one stays for a while, also since I made it in a size too large. The instructions of course as usual nothing less than perfect.
So that is that my friends. I have been missing sewing and writing, but for now my visits here are going to be a bit sporadic. Still, do drop by and say hello! And I hope your sewing and summer is going well.
