Slowly changing babies

I think my work is getting to me.  I was trying to think of a way to summarize what my brother said about Mikey's growth.  And all I can compare it to is the Data Warehouse concept of Slowly Changing Dimensions.  Sigh.... I'm such a looser.

Anyway, I finished the Miitens for little Mikey, and I wanted to give them to my bro, like, NOW, because I was worried that Mikey will outgrow them in a few weeks.  But Eli said "he's growing slow" and I can just give it to them in a few weeks when we get together with my mom.   

What the?!?!  I thought babies grow like weeds?!  Appearantly some are slowly changing.

Anyway, I wrapped up the Miitens but hopefully when Mikey gets them, Eli will take a picture and send it to me for show and tell. =)

A baby jacket

I took a class ("Simplified Set In Sleeve") with Joan Schrouder at Stitches West 2009. This baby jacket was part of the class assignment. I was confused during the class, but after the event I restarted the project all over at home. After a month of on-and-off knitting, I finished this little thing.

Joan is a WONDERFUL teacher, and I will take any class she teaches in the future!

Next up are some "Mii"ttens. Guess who I'm knitting for?
