Ta-da! Here it is, my little corner of the world. A 1930's curio from a local antique place here. Stuffed full of knits, but getting a little bare in the yarn category (no, seriously). Here are some close-ups.
Mounds of mittens (and a few legwarmers, jingly balls, and a scarf or two)

We made another big purchase last week, too. After months of garage sale-ing, antiquing, thrift store hunting, and craigslist searching, we finally found the yarn cabinet I've been praying for. And old 1930's kitchen hutch is now dominating our living room and I love it! This, too, was one of those "gift for you=gift for me" things, because a variety of knitted baby items and knitting accoutrements were beginning to take over our closet -- and it's a nice walk-in closet, so we're talking serious yarn storage problem here-- and Vince was going to start finding knitted baby booties on his sock shelf if we didn't take drastic measures.
But now we come to the part of the blog where I have to explain why I have no pictures to show you ...and did I mention how helpless I am with technology?
The pop-up blocker is set up and I can't even figure out how to get a picture on here. Surely there is fancy geek jargon for what is wrong with my brand new computer, but I don't know what it is. Unless it's just pathetic operator error (guilty!).

What did you say? You want me to move my feet?
This one looks like an ornery booger, but he's mine...my first baby. And really, not so ornery. Mostly.
And Iree, cooperating --sort of -- in a white shirt (and not a tank top!). Almost a victory!
News forthcoming regarding online ETSY store...stay tuned!

Thank you to everyone who supported Baruch's Lullaby and the Anchorage Crisis Pregnancy Center last Saturday at the 21st annual Spring Tea! Anchorage's CPC has seen real change in the lives of women and families because it has offered a real hope and real choices to women who need truth and love instead of a destructive escape hatch. At the tea we heard from Kayla, an incredible 16-year-old who has more guts and authenticity than most of us of voting age. Her story thrilled me, and I am so proud of her and the people who are on the frontlines everyday at Crisis Pregnancy Centers around the country. And I hope baby Autumn loves her knitted dress!
Baruch's Lullaby is still taking custom orders from the tea and will still send 30% of the sale to CPC for those who attended the event. We'll make change together!

This is waiting to be turned into my almost-two-year-old's birthday present (since his old sweater now shows off his chubby midriff):
And I am waiting to be turned into Elizabeth Bennett for the umpteenth time. The last two hours of Pride and Prejudice awaits! Goodnight!
