Baby Photos!

I forgot to mention a few other crochet things I found last week...a lady on the Yahoo Crochet Partners group mentioned a magazine called Crafts N' Things, that has a whole section of crochet patterns this month. I found the magazine at a drugstore by my job, and it had a bunch of really cute patterns, so I bought a copy. While I was looking at the magazines, I also found a knitting magazine, Knit Simple, that has an article about Vanna White and her new line of Lion Brand yarn, with cute crochet patterns for a blanket and a jacket. Yep, sometimes knitting magazines have a few crochet patterns thrown in! Definitely check out those magazines!

Right after I finished my blog post last night, my brother sent me some pictures of my new little Arabic, Italian, Irish, Slovak niece! I'm still trying to figure out the correct spelling of her name - my sister said my brother told her it's "Genna" with a G, but my brother spelled it "Jenna" with a J in his email, so I'm not sure how they're spelling it. Same name though! Here's the pictures:

Isn't she just TOO cute?! Naturally I'm probably biased because I'm the aunt, but I still think she's pretty darn cute! And so roly-poly! I can't wait to see her in person! My son was a roly-poly baby too, but now he's just a tiny little thing, really small for his age. I don't think I've ever posted any pictures of him on my blog, so here's one (an older picture, but he still looks the same, just a little older). That's my handsome little boy wearing a hat I loom-knitted for him, before I learned how to crochet. Speaking of loom knitting, I think I've probably only used my looms once since I learned how to crochet - I just find crocheting faster and easier, but after seeing these awesome (pink!) slipper socks on Isela Phelps' website, (couldn't get the one-word link to work right) I'm tempted to break out my looms again. We'll see!

Laura, my family is a mixed bag of religions as well. My immediate family is all Catholic, but I have aunts, uncles, and cousins who are Lutheran, Baptist, Protestant, and one set of Pi's grandparents are Jewish. Family functions are always interesting, LOL.

I was raised in a home where we were Catholic by name but did not practice. I was pretty much a non-believer until I met my hubby. Watching his belief and faith really inspired me to learn more. The more I learned, the more I knew I had to come back to the was an amazing and overwhelming experience. Slowly, my immediate family is also coming back to the Church too!

That is so incredibly awesome that your brother got holy water, soil, and a rosary from the Holy Land. I hope to make a pilgramige there one day, when hubby and I are older and have an empty nest. Another dream of mine is to visit Rome and the Vatican.

She is gorgeous!

I say, break those looms open and start looming away. It will only take a few hours, just a few and then you can wear them while you crochet away :)

Aww! Love baby pictures. G/J-enna is so adorable! I hope that she is feeling better.
I love your son's smile. What a cutie!
I have the loom but actually find it more daunting than trying to actually knit something. I should try it out though. I saw a free bolster pillow pattern that I liked using the loom.

The new little one is just too cute! I think rolly polly babies are the best! And, she's so global!

Awww! She's absolutely adorable! I come from a multi-racial family as well, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I have a easy loomed too slipper sock pattern. Try it and tell me what you think.
