Tibault & Toad

Maggie’s Laurelhurst Mittens

It's been so long since I've joined Ginny for a yarn along! Honestly, I've been avoiding knitting because I've been sort of dreading that colorwork sweater that I've been working on for Indy, and I have a really hard time working on more than one project at a time. Fortunately I've made some good progress on that and it's really coming along (I know I'll be so glad I did it when it's finally done), and I've given myself permission to cast on with some other things that are quicker and more enjoyable. The cold weather helps with the knitting spirit too, of course. 

These mittens were for my dear friend Maggie, in return for the beautiful letter-work she did for the Tibault and Toad logo several months ago. I was able to get them done just in time to give them to her while she was visiting home around Thanksgiving. It's the Laurelhurst pattern, knit with Fishermen's Wool as the main color and Stonehedge Shepherd's Wool as the contrast, lined with some thrifted pink cashmere because who likes the wind biting through their mittens? Raveled here

the birth of tula rose

God must have heard my prayers, because the day before we had to leave for California, when I was sure we had run out of time, I got the text that Lily was in labor. She had her baby girl, Tula Rose, at home that night. Lily and I were in group prenatal care together when we were both pregnant with our sons, and I was so honored to be able to be there to witness the occasion and document it for her. This was Lily's third baby, and they are such a sweet family. Her daughter was able to witness the birth of her little sister, and I love the tears of joy that I was able to capture. Also, I'm pretty sure Tula has the cutest cloth diapers of any baby around :)

Congratulations Lily and family!
