New arrivals!

She's here! Billie Anne & Mike's beautiful, sweet, gorgeous, precious, easygoing little Lily Delaney arrived this morning, weighing in at 7 lbs., 10 oz. and 20 3/4 inches long.

The delivery went very smoothly (only 1 1/2 pushes!) and as Lily was being wheeled to the nursery for her first bath, she was a bit bored with her adoring crowds:

She has sweet little dark curls, fair skin and the pinkest little mouth - just like Snow White! Here, she is giving Daddy a tiny gesture as if to say, "Hey Pops, who said you could take my hat off?!"

And here she is, all stretched out, perfectly ok with being poked and prodded as long as she could have her fingers to suck on:

With proud big brother, Ian:

Congratulations to Billie Anne and her entire family! Way to go, crochet queen!

Now, this will be utterly anticlimatic after Lily's arrival, but we did get some exciting new arrivals at Loops. There was a huge box of Regia (all types), especially some highly requested solids and tweeds. There was the newest Sock Club color in SWT Tofutsies. And there was the long-awaited Twinkle line, including Twinkle Soft Chunky and Cruise:

The Twinkle book is soooo couture - tons of hip chunky sweaters and accessories, plus delicate cottons:

Gina H. finished a scarf in less than one day! It's straight from the book and modeled by Marisa, who leaves for college on Thursday! We had a going-away get together for the Loops college-bound girls on Sunday...more on that next time.


Please add a comment with advice for Billie Anne...

Way to go Billie Ann. Ian looks so hansome next to his little sister. He'll make a great big brother. Advice...enjoy her. Kids grow so fast.
For the anticlimatic "stuff", I'm making Emily the 1 skein hat out of the Twinkle, and the new Tofutsie yarn is in my list of must have!!!

Congrats on the new baby! I have three sons so I'm not sure there is a ton of advice I can offer. Maybe just to really enjoy the time with them. Everyone says it goes fast but I found the more kids you have, the less time you have to dote on that baby. And with our last one, who is 17months now, I can't get enough time with him. Enjoy & great job-she's gorgeous!;)

Make sure your knitting bag is larger than your diaper bag!! I mean, we've all seen the diaper bags that would turn Mr. Samsonite green with envy... Moms carry them into restaurants all the time. But seriously, HOW MANY TIMES will a baby need to be changed during brunch? :-)

Billie, She is absolutely beautiful. As eveyone says they grow up way too fast but she will always be your baby girl. Ian will love being the big brother. Remember to take time for yourself even if it is only one hour a week. Can't wait to see her up close and personal. Congratulations on a great job!
