Bibs, Bottles, Baby and a ball of wool

Its so great to be back, and thank you all for your comments. You've given me the inspiration to pick up my needles and knit for my own baby (who, by the way is such a Nosh I just want to eat him!). I've added another photo of the Nosh, just 'cos I wanna.

This morning I went upstairs to our "new" loft room (we moved house the week before we had the Nosh, clever??!!) and took out a cone of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in pale blue, (and we're renovating too, clever??!!) I dusted off her Special Knits book and flicked through. I was looking for a simple knit. My head is mush at the moment so I can't start substituting yarns (picking colours of paint, tiles and fabric is challenging enough). The Alphabet Sweater, very cute, very appropriate, and using cashmerino aran. (tell me, who moves the week before you give birth, honestly).

I'm definitely going to start this sweater today.
First thing, nappy change. Give the Nosh a top and tail then feed him.
Put him in a snowsuit to take the Bubela to school.
P-ing down with rain, not a good start.
Actually the BIL did a good deed today and walked the Bubela into school for me.
Get back home, dry hair.
Steralise a few bottles, make up the next couple of feeds and add colic drops. Oy, the colic hour (don't get me started on the colic hour)
Ok, cast on for the Alphabet blanket, needles feel a bit foreign in my hands, but I'll get used to it.
The Nosh is crying, nappy change and settle him.
Right, back to the needles. Knit a few rows in garter stitch - great, nice and easy. (Meanwhilst, I haven't even read through the pattern, so its all going to be a surprise to me).
Feed the Nosh.
Wind the Nosh.

Back to the needles... whats that - TR2??? A nice simple knit I wanted and I'm learning a new stitch, oy vey. Its the twist stitch. Knit into the second stitch then the first, then knock them off the left needle. Looks very nice *take a look at the picture*, its like a cable.

Welcome to the world my precious

I know its been a long while, I hope you remember me!!

Here's the gorgeous reason why I've not been around for months. Welcome my beautiful boy, here he is just 2 days old.

My precious little baby boy was born the day before my birthday, 17th October. My precious miracle! Thank you God.

Just a short re-cap for those of you who didn't follow my story... He was the result of my third ivf attempt, my real life true miracle... and what a gorgeous one he turned out to be.

The Bubela just adores him. No signs of the jealousy, mostly the over-protectivness.

As for knitting... there hasn't been any. Throughout my whole pregnancy I just lost the bug, and gained another - eating! I now wanna lose the eating bug and get my needles working again, help!! Oh, and join a weight watchers class!!
