Laurel had her baby on Wednesday. He weighed 8 lbs. 14 oz. and was just over 20 inches long. No pictures on the Internet, in the interest of child safety.
Turbo and I knitted a hat for him.
Capillifolium Baby Bonnet from Piecework Magazine, knitted in Hebridean 2-ply from Virtual Yarns.
The hat is itchy. I guess I will put a little hat band in it and line the earflaps.
My brother broke his leg camping at Yellowstone park this morning, badly enough to require surgery. His wife called our brother-in-law, Dan, who is an ER doc to ask if he should have the surgery in nearby Rexburg, or go back home to Las Vegas. Dan said that if they went back to Las Vegas, the leg would look like a python that ate a pig by the time they got there.
The illustration from The Little Prince comes to mind. Of course, that was neither a python nor a pig.
Ruth Ann has finished chemotherapy! Hurray! She can grow hair again!
