Woman, sixty, and still trying to get it right. Stumbling the path toward the Divine. Discussing things like grandparenting, Waldorf education, child development, nature, human awareness, empty-nesting, breast cancer, and knitting luscious things once in awhile.
These days are rainy cold and filled with children and baby love. I've been able to fit some knitting in here and there. I found this self-striping yarn that I love. It's a wool that has a ot of lanolin, so it softens even as I knit it. I made each of the boys a hat in "their" colors (in my humble opinion, anyway).
My granddaughter (That's the first time in my whole life I've ever written those two words together) was born at 1:07 this morning, at home, in the birth tub, surrounded by beautiful chanting music and candle light. She weighed 10 pounds 4 ounces. Her skin is softer than time. Her mama is an awesome warrior. Pictures wil be posted soon. And I'm going to take a nap.
Help. I'm looking for a bootie pattern that I can knit in angora, and the finished product will be a little fluffy ball...no cuff...and it will stay on the baby's foot. It will need to have a good stretch to it? Two kinds of yarn maybe? Any experience? Any ideas???
