Wedding and baby

Look at Laura's face!
I love this photo...kind of sums up both of them and how fun they are. She looked amazing and Gav scrubs up pretty well too. We spent the weekend in Burnford, or somewhere like that - you know me and geography. It was lovely to be there for the wedding but also good to see people again. I haven't seen some for 6 months, very well illustrated by the growth of the baby who rivals Pete for title of 'cutest'. Her name is Maya.

Pooch had offered to get her Mum some breakfast when she said "Actually, if you could just hold her for a minute." There followed a minute or two's pure comedy with the mum saying "ahh, well, maybe someone else..." before Pooch finally managed to get hold of the baby, the right way up and everything. Here he is looking really comfortable and natural (that's sarcasm that is). Maya was not very impressed with the whole manouvre but behaved with an elegant aloofness that will hold her in good stead should she ever date a computer programmer.

Meanwhile the librivox socks are continuing nicely and I have joined the Interweave KAL on ravelry. The group chooses a shortlist of 3 and you choose your favourite. I am going with the Winding Cable Knee Socks which is also a free pattern available online. I feel like I should be doing them in pink cotton but that wouldn't be comfy so am going to look for something else suitably delicate and girly instead.

Lastly, Sian's blanket, which was a saggy starghan, has been reborn as a crochet granny. Same yarn, very different design. Only 4 squares so far. Might be ready in time for christmas....2012.

Some men are hopeless with babbas until they have their own, then they become the best Dads ever - I speak from experience, my OH didn't know one end of a baby from the other, not even his own nephews and nieces, but he's been a brilliant hands on Dad for 15 years.. not that I'm trying to put ideas in your head or anything..;-)
