Growing and Growing

We had Isaac's 2 month checkup on Friday. They are pleased with his progress Here are his stats.

Born: 2 months: Growth:
8lbs 14lbs 4.8oz 6lbs 4.8oz
21in 24in 3in
16.5in head

So he is growing fast! He is pretty much out of any 0-3m sleepers because of his length. They were impressed with the strength of his neck and ability to hold his head up. He has been a strong guy since before he was born, I have the sore sides to prove it. He passed every test with flying colors. He even decided he had to tell his side of it to the Dr. and started smiling and "talking" to her. Whatever he said he was serious about getting his point across to her. :) We are all happy that he is doing so well, at least we are doing something right.

Onto something else that is growing. KY Wool Fest! The wool tent has grown quite a bit from last year. We will have 19 vendors! So things are growing in the right direction. Hopefully next year we will have enough to need 2 tents. Keep your fingers crossed that the wool part of the festival will continue to grow. Please come and see us if you are in the are or if you would like to go on a beautiful scenic drive. Hope to see you this coming weekend. Stop in and say hi.

Where has the time gone?

Wow has it really been that long since my last post? I am hanging my head in shame for neglecting you all and my blog for so long. I could say that dyeing up yarns and rovings getting ready for local fiber festivals and complications with my pregnancy were to blame, but really, I am the only one to blame here.

I would like to introduce the newest member to the Knitted to a T family. Our baby boy was born July 21, 2009 at 2:00pm. He was 8 lbs and 21in long. We named the little guy Isaac Mathew (no I didn't forget the other "t" in Mathew lol).

Tomorrow we have Isaac's 2 month check-up. He is such a little chunk. I can't wait to see what he tips the scales at this time. The last time he was weighed he had been gaining 2oz per day! That is double what the "scale" says they should be gaining. Of course that "scale" is based on formula fed babies, but I won't get on my soap box about that at this point. ;)

Ok so proud Mommy that I am had to show you my boys before I went onto the fiber part of my life. I had been dyeing up yarn and roving like a mad woman getting ready for my fiber festival season. I have 2 shows under my belt and one more to go.

The last one that I am doing this year is the Kentucky Wool Festival. While it isn't a true wool festival (more crafts than wool), the wool part is growing. There is a blog just for the wool part of the festival with a list of vendors for this year and other info. Check it out here. The festival runs October 2 - 4, Friday and Saturday from 10am - 10pm and Sunday 10am - 6pm. Hope to see you there

Thank you to all that have come out to the past festivals and shown their support. I hope that you enjoy your purchases.

Hopefully soon I will get back to my sadly neglected website. I will be adding things back to my etsy sight as well here in the next few weeks.

See you all around.
