I have a grandson

Born two months early and on Christmas day. He's 3.6 pounds and 16" of wriggly, beautiful baby. He was born by C-section and everything is going well, Jen is home and has had her staples removed, Joseph is off oxygen and breathing on his own, now they can concentrate on getting his weight up and getting him on a bottle. They're feeding him through a tube right now, until he can take a bottle.

I guess I better break out my Shortie Sleeper pattern and make some full sleepers for him. I'll have to go down a hook size to make sure it's small enough and make the legs/sleeves longer. I don't think I can find any clothes his size in stores unless I find a specialty store that charges an arm/leg for their stuff. I might break out my sewing machine and sew him some flannel sleepers too, just make sure he has enough things until he gets big enough to wear the clothes they already have for him.

It's frosty out

I had to start DH's truck this morning so the windshield could thaw before he went to work. It's around 28-30F outside and everything is covered in a blanket of frost.

DH commented that he wished he had a ski cap because he works outside so after he got to work I did a search at CPC and found a perfect cap that I'm working on right now. The Ribbed Ski Cap at Dot's looks like it'll fit the bill. I'm using a J instead of K hook since DH's head is slightly smaller than mine and I'm using RHSS Aran Fleck from my stash since my camo is in use. I'm working my way down the forehead right now and it's going pretty quickly.

Will post a pic as soon as it's done and I can get DH to model it for me.
