Meet the youngest

A rambling catch-up if you will. Life has been busy. Add 2 new grandbabies (one a preemie) and it's been a whirlwind. 
This pair of feet belongs to the youngest grandbaby. He was born 5 weeks premature. He's a laid back kinda guy (much like his parents) and a very sweet little thing (yeah, I know, I'm a grandmother so of course I think they're all perfect). It's kind of cool being grandparents, you get to make things, enjoy them and at the end of the day you know they're loved and cared for and you don't have to worry about their day-to-day care. 
 My knitting needles have been crazy busy. A snowman hat was whipped up on the day of the unexpected delivery. Just in the nick of time for him to wear home after his stay in NICU.
 A Dr. Seuss hat was next on the needles and is one of the new mom and dad's favorites. We went to church today and he wore this little hat. Made me smile to see our church "family" who was so actively involved with all four of our children finally get to meet and greet the youngest member of our family. They ooooed and awwwwed and enjoyed every moment with him.
 Booties....lots and lots of booties. I found this pattern on Ravelry. Couldn't resist and snagged the pattern. They are without a doubt the best booties ever. They actually stay on baby's feet in spite of wiggling and kicking. I've made quite a few for both new babies. Definitely my new go-to pattern. I considered selling them but the designer locks a seller into purchasing a 'cottage' license.
 Other news: It's March (I'm not a fan) and Mr. Bettis has found the mud *sigh*. Due to a busy life, knitting needles clicking non-stop and too many drama llamas, I've bowed out of social media for now. Not too certain I'll return but for a brief visit now and again. Besides, I have certainly finished many tasks that have been sitting the background wings and that alone is a good reason to bow out :D
