Some pics. . .
Well as promised to Annie, here is a picture of my current obsession, wool. Since I have yet to get knitting down, I have taken to buying wool sweaters at the thrift store and making them into things. Last winter I made the girls little wool long johns and this winter with a baby due I'm pretty much going nuts. I modelled these after a super cute pair I saw made by the German clothing manufactuer, Disana, who makes tons of cute little wool clothes for babies and children.
Wool is really amazing stuff. It is the ideal material for baby clothes because it keeps babies warm in winter and cool in the summer. Apparently the lanolin in it acutally kills bacteria and so a baby in a wool diaper cover or wool pants over a cotton diaper, actually can't have any nasty bacteria on their little rumpus. I just lanolized these overalls today after I made them so once they are dry they will be ready to go.
Our good friends, the Storks visited us from out of town the other day and they just had their fourth baby, named Zita. So here are the two Zita's united for the first of hopefully many times. I can't beleive I am lucky enought to know two Zitas. Wow.
Lastly, so as not to be behind too much here is the baby at six months along. Last trimester here we come!!!
