No, I haven’t knit her anything since her coming-home cardigan months ago. Yes, I am working on something for her for Rhinebeck. Maybe I’ll even get it done in time.

    How can she reproach you when she’s wearing such an adorable coat? SURELY you get credit for that! Good luck with the Rhinebeck outfit.

    Awww, she’s adorable even without knits. Hope motherhood is treating you well :)

    Oh my! Where have I been? I fell off the internet for a few months (for the same reason you did, evidently) and I completely missed the announcement that you had a baby. So excited to see this- hope all is well and you are enjoying every second of motherhood.

    Love it. My daughter gives me the same look and then reaches for her baby BSJ that is not exactly fitting her any more, but we still pretend. I need to make her a Fall/Winter sweater, and fast!

    You will have many years to do so and she will appreciate it! She’s adorable!

    She’s so precious! I imagine it will be so much fun to knit for her…hope you get to do so soon. I know how work can interfere with knitting for the ones we love most, so don’t let that reproachful look get to you!

    Looked for the 2 of you at Rhinebeck. Very disappointed I didn’t see you. Was hoping to meet Ms. Olivia.

    She is precious! I did not knit anything for my children, too many other things to do =)!

    Hi Connie,
    I have a question regarding Sabbatical. It’s turning out beautifully. I have, however, shortened it a bit. When you picked up the stitches for the front band, did you pick up 2 stitches for every 3 rows or 3 stitches for every 4 rows?
    Thanks.
