Kitty Babies




My other babies! They’ve been so great with Roman or maybe tolerant is a better word? Roman lights up whenever he sees them and squeals each time he puts his hand down to pet them. I keep asking him, “why do they always run away when you come over to pet them?!”


I’m rocking my baby and babies don’t keep.

Life with baby is definitely an adjustment. You have no idea how to really cherish your free time, until it is controlled by someone else. Often times, I have found myself hoping that he’s ready for a nap. However, I am always remembering that I need to tune out everything else around me and focus on being present with him. Time goes by so quickly and one day he’s not going to let me cuddle him and kiss him and smell him. 🙂  I try and absorb everything about the moment. Even when he only sleeps a short while, I always get a burst of happiness when I look into his crib and see his sweet smiling face. And honestly, why am I in such a hurry to clean anyway?

The cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow
But children grow up as I’ve learned to my sorrow.
So quiet down cobwebs; Dust go to sleep!
I’m rocking my baby and babies don’t keep.

Hello There!

Welcome to the new Knit Owl blog!

Life got busy and I fell out of blogging. One of my goals for the year was to get it going again.

There’s been a lot happening around here.

I had a baby, Roman Brant, last July!

He’s 7 months now!

I’ve still been knitting, crocheting, baking and sewing. Along with running The Knit Owl Etsy shop, filling custom orders and selling in local stores.

Speaking of, I’d like to host a giveaway in celebration of the new blog. Please leave a comment between now and Monday, February 28! One lucky winner will receive 3 Grecian Style Headbands in the colors of their choice!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ll come back soon! I have lots of fun things planned!
