Knitting supplies giveaway WINNER

Congratulations to coriwestphal who has been chosen as the winner of the great knitting giveaway. coriwestphal said… I am a beginner and don’t have much of a knitter collection. This would be a great addition! I also twittered but couldn’t find an email for you so here’s the link: Thanks to LORI who was actually the SOLE sponsor of this giveaway, and for her knitting tutorials to help us all along, and thanks to all who entered.

I’ve been charmed by some of the new pieces at, of all places, Old Navy.  Maybe it’s the happy, contrasting colors, or the apparent comfort-factor, or the mommy-functionality that’s tempting me.  mid-rise pants, $32.50. for schlepping around town in comfy style.  hooded henley, $16.50. love those bright blue stripes umbrella, $9.50. darling dots  say “bring on the rain!” button front raincoat, $39.50. an ideal layer in cheery yellow

I spied this little nook in Cookie a little while ago and fell in love with it; we have so many little cars and trains roaming around our house that would love to find a home in a little zipper cases like these. var gaJsHost = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ?

personalized onesies.

Alma has officially given birth to her first baby. A boy. I’m gearing up to deliver my second, also a boy. Thus, we can’t help but be preoccupied with everything baby–espeically clothes. This time around, I’m finding it much easier to get sweet, snuggly, non-cartoonish infant clothes that are boyish without being silly.
