My first grandchild, a girl, was born last week. Her name is Shakked (“almond”) Miriam. Look at all that hair!
In the photo above she is 8 days old. In the one below, she’s about 8 hours old. I took these phones with my phone, but I’m seriously tempted to bring my camera out of retirement. I even put away my cobweb Orenburg shawl (temporarily) to work on a couple baby sweaters. It’s rather relaxing to knit something that doesn’t require reading glasses.

I’m still working on the never-ending “Lady and Unicorn: Sense of Hearing” embroidery. I’ve just finished the second row of charts, which means I’m just a few rows above the halfway point! (The last row of charts isn’t a full page.)
This piece is 318 x 410 stitches (total: 130,380 stitches), with 133 colours (mostly blends of two strands). It uses about 20 different shades of red. Good thing I don’t mind looking at the colour.
