Good things  
There are also good things in my life wedged between the insane work hours I've given myself.

1. I am an aunt! Little CZ was on the evening of October 8th and she looks like a little monkey with her very flexible arms and legs. I'd forgotten how utterly small newborns are! My sister in law (the Mum), Crocky and SIL 2 are enthralled.

2. In honour of the new family member I'm knitting a variation of the Dreamcatcher Blanket. I've chosen different colours and I'm also doing different patterns than the ones suggested. Since I've been trying to use up rests of my yarn stash I've had a difficult time trying to get the squares the same size. I will have to see if I can get them to their target size (six by six inches) through blocking later.

Yay, a baby! SIL is wife of your sibling or Crocky's sister?

Your talents continue to astound!

Crocky's middle sister!!! She's a very proud aunt. My brother's not married, so the two SILs are Crocky's younger sisters.

All the best to the little one!
And that is the nicest thing to knit with the leftover-wool for sure <3

Congratulations! Severus brought the fluffy teddy for the wee 'un, but don't tell anyone. He has his street-cred to think of.

The blanket promises to be spectacular.
