Pattern: Wyatt by Kelly Herdrich (My Ravelry Link)
: Quentin
Yarn: 0.81 skeins (178.2 yards/38 grams) of Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash in blueberry.
Needles: US 8 - 5.0 mm
: Newborn-9 months size (according to the pattern).
Timeline: February 8 - February 22, 2011
Modifications: Knit pattern as written.
Notes: I absolutely adore this pattern, it’s written well, and very quick. Calls for a heavy worsted, but I’m using Cascade 220 Superwash for the Superwash aspect of the yarn, which is a regular worsted yarn, but I'm getting just about gauge with 5.0mm needles. It just fits Quentin now, who is 9 lbs 5 oz at 13 weeks old. It’s really a newborn sweater. No way a 9 month old could fit into the smallest size, which the designer marked as NB-9 month old. Most 13 week olds are a lot large than 9 lbs 5 oz (heck some babies are even born larger than this size).

I have some new knitting to talk about tomorrow... stay tuned for that.


Today we had our weekly music class.
Quentin discovered that he could chew on his fingers during class.
I am going to be sad when this class is over, there are just a few classes left...
As we're having so much fun!
Most of the kids in the class are older, and I am sure their moms will be going back to work.
Not sure what will happen when it's over, maybe we'll find another music class to do.


We had lunch at my parents house after music, since we were just across the street.
I tried to snap a few extra shots for Wyatt, and they all came out super cute.
Quentin was rather fond of these two stuffed animals that giggle.

I've been decorating my office a bit, so today I'll show you one item. (The Owl I put up months ago) but today I installed "A Mother holds her child's hand for just a short time, but holds their heart forever." It's so sweet. I love it. I have some more wall art to show you, so stay tuned.

Don't forget that by commenting, you will be entered into my giveaway for a copy of Arranged by Catherine McKenzie. The contest runs until March 16, 2011, and I will draw a winner that evening when I blog. All you have to do is comment on any post this blog.

Seeing Quentin in his new sweater makes me smile. One day when he's taller than you, you'll look at the sweater and have sweet memories.

Hey sweetie, it might be a problem with where I'm reading from, but about half your pictures aren't showing up in your posts :( I'm not getting all the Quentin cuteness!
