Of babies, migraines, and seaming

As promised, here are a couple of pics of my new nephew, James. These were taken on Sunday when he was just 1 day old:
Baby James
What a cutie!



Who could resist a cuddle? Not me!

I've had a pretty poor day today as I had to come home from work early suffering from a migraine. I haven't had one for a while, so I guess it was on the cards. The visual disturbances are quite amazing but very annoying. I can see properly now, but I still have a cracking headache on the left of my head, so I'm taking it easy.

As for knitting progress, I'm being very disciplined and actually finishing my peachy bolero before I start something else! I've done half the seaming and sewing in ends, but couldn't resist starting to do a crab stitch (reverse crochet) edging. I'm really pleased with it so far, so pics to follow when it's complete.

I'm also romping through my youngest daughter's crochet poncho as I want to get it finished for her. When that's done, I really should get around to edging my crochet cardigan; I was horrified to realise last night that I actually started this in April 2002! Oh well, I guess it was a long-term project. ;-)

what a cutie baby photo! aah, the churchill pose! Sorry about your migraine, the few times i've had one the visual bit only happens for about 20 mins, but it frightens me every time.

I sympathise I really do! Baby James looks adorable doesn'the... but then he won't look like that for long- they change so quickly! Everytime I see my niece she's different!
Well Done for finishing something!

A "say no to the poncho" button and yet a poncho in progress. The shame ;p

Agree with scarletprincess - he is a real cutie.

He is an absolutely adorable baby! Wishing him all the best for his future!

Littlelixie - I quote from the "No to the Poncho" rules: "Making ponchos for others is fine! Please just be opposed to wearing one." Sums me up perfectly. :-)

What a beautiful baby! Sorry not to see you in Beatties yesterday, Hope the migraine is over now.

They're so lovely and snuggly like that, I think he's going to be spoilt big time by his auntie.
