So many things to share and some recent happenings make me want to skip ahead to the Saturday group for this post. Natasha and her husband John are expecting their first baby in July. She is busily preparing for this happy event which, of course, includes knitting. When she announced her pregnancy in January by showing a baby blanket, we were so excited for her. This child-in-the-making immediately had numerous “aunts and grandmothers”. Natasha bought the yarn, Araucania’s Nature Cotton,  (when Skein Lane retail closed) in hopes of knitting for a baby – her baby. Finally she just began…and then she was delighted to share that she is “with child”.  She is also knitting an Annie Scarf Stole for use during her pregnancy and for her nursing days ahead. She has just completed a baby boy sweater –  yes, it’s a boy!

Later I will post about Natasha’s mother, Jen. She has such an interesting family history that she has researched and ultimately written a book about her travels. Stay tuned for more on this topic.

By the way, Natasha is another prolific knitter..and you will see more of her works here.
