I have had very little sleep in the past 48 hours. I've spent most of my time staring at that door thanks to CNN.
On Monday I waited anxiously for the birth. I had been up since 1 am.
On Tuesday I was up by 5 am waiting for a peek at the little lad. With the time difference I was afraid I might miss something. When the door finally opened, I was not disappointed. I was completely and irrationally giddy with excitement. Maybe it was the gin and tonic I was sipping to pass the time.
Now does anyone have any ideas on the pattern for that lovely shawl the sweet thing was wrapped in?
I know New Zealand gifted them this one designed by Margaret Stove and spun and knit by Cynthia Read but I don't think that was the one he was wrapped in-or was it? My bleary eyes aren't seeing straight at the moment.
Edited to add: You can find the actual shawl here and here thanks to someone's good detective work over on Ravelry. I am disappointed to say it was store bought rather than handmade.
Now-how long will it be before we see someone knock off this pattern?
And he was quite the chunky monkey at 8 pounds 6 ounces! Wonder what the name will be? Now get some sleep!!! :-)ReplyDelete
I also paid attentîon to the knitted blanket when the baby was introduced! By the end of the week, someone will have the pattern figured out and up on Rav.ReplyDelete
Ha! I was wondering if anyone else noted the baby was wrapped in handknit lace - all my coworkers (who only commented on how cute Will and Kate looked in matching blue) thought I was crazy to pick that out!ReplyDelete
