More about knitting than quilting

I've hardly sewn a stitch in weeks because, apart from the excitement of Henry's birth, I have spent the cold evenings knitting rather than sewing.  I am not making anything for him for now because it is now spring (although it will be cooler for a bit longer where he lives), so I am now busy knitting for him for next winter and the photo below shows what I have been up to.  It's a very cute little jacket with a hood from a Sirdar pattern which I picked up at the Darling Harbour quilt and craft show in June, weeks before he was born.  Lucky that I knew he was going to be a boy!

My DD has been visiting for a few days with Henry while her husband has been in Cairns for work and we have had a lovely time together.  It was all the more wonderful having Henry here.  He is now five weeks old and already changing.  New Nanna has been working her new camera overtime taking all sorts of photos of Little Man.  Here are a couple but I promise to (try to) limit the photos in future!
