Tin Can Knits?

On my knitting post binge, here is a gift from Tin Can Knits (which I love!).  They have a learn to knit guide with free patterns...which are all most gorgeous and earthy.

Need Sock Yarn Advice

Sock Yarns....  I am hoping to hold a knitting session down here to teach some people how to make socks.  Which sock yarn do you like?  Do you have a favorite?  I've narrowed it down to these 3.  Feel free to make other suggestions.  I need it to be affordable and beautiful as well as ethical.  Much love!

Our Baby Girl

We had our baby girl in a birth pool by the light of a candle.  It was a romantic birth.  It was a triumphant birth with a great team of attendants!  The house was full of rejoicing and we couldn't cease to be in awe ourselves. 

Here are a few pictures of our first moments together.  Baby Completely was 7# 14 oz, 19.5 inches long.  She is named Madeline Reina Skye Young.  What a sweet and majestic thing she is!

 Still in the pool, first minute of contact.

What a great midwife!
