2011 potholders received!

Thank you, everyone, for your sweet comments about Gregory's arrival. The last three weeks have been a blur, though one thing is clear: he is full of personality, and such a love. We are adjusting and learning to live with this little bundle of joy.

Skeptical, just like his mama.

I've been able to do a little bit of knitting, but before I show you my new projects, I have some pre-baby things to clear off my plate. For starters, remember the 2011 Potholder Swap (on Ravelry, on Flickr)? I crocheted the Pinwheel Rose potholders, and here are the potholders I got in exchange!

Top row: from Kelly, Shannan, and Maryse. Bottom row: from Amy, and Natasha from London, U.K.

These are absolutely wonderful! I'm not sure what's better: crocheting potholders for the swap, or receiving an always surprising collection of potholders in exchange. I love both! Huge thanks to the five ladies who crocheted these beauties for me!

Next up: some baby knits! I know it won't be a shocker that they are actually not for my baby - some things never change, I will be a process knitter forever :).

Aww love the picture of bebeh! That look is priceless!

I'm partial to owls and like that potholder but they are all awesome!

What a cute little Grumperino! Lovely potholders too!

Love that furrowed brow look -- it's saying "you've gotta be kidding me."

I love your cutie!!

Awesome. I love the potholders. They are super awesome (I should start my potholders for next year if I want to be done in time for once).

What a cutie!!

What a great picture!

what a little cutie! looks like he's already full of personality!

Awwww..... He's beautiful!

Oh man, he is *so* cute

A true Grumpster!! You are so lucky. Blessed with a beautiful baby and talented to boot.

Fabulous portrait!

And what a great collection of potholders - so different, yet each one gorgeous!

Gregory seems to have spotted a questionable yarn choice.

He's too cute - I love that grumpy look! Enjoy him. They grow so fast.

Oh what a cute little face! I love that expression.

And the potholders are fabulous. It's great to see all the creative stuff going on in the world!

How wonderful to have such an expressive child--it makes doing all those repetitive chores so much more fun! The best thing you can do for any child, I think, is enjoy them, and it looks like you are doing that.

What a handsome young man!!
The pot holders are really cool too!!

Ah ha ha ha, that furrowed brow! Awesome.

Oh, he is so adorable! I love that face!! Congrats :)

Laughed out loud when I opened this blog and saw baby Greg's photo. You captured a priceless moment. He is adorable. You're so lucky!

He is your *clone*!! Compare him to the picture of you as a child. Absolutely adorable. Thanks for sharing, and for the great blog.

Just a little grumpy boy! He's adorable!

Congratulations!! Gregory looks like an excellent baby. The first weeks are crazy. It gets better and better.

I adore that photo of your little guy! Personality shines forth. Isn't it great what you can capture in a split second!?

The potholders are such fun. Like a little art gallery! Thanks for sharing with us.

Awe...he is so cute..thanks for sharing him with your readers....love the potholders.

It looks like he's struggling to do the Vulcan salute. Live long and prosper, fella!

He's pretty cute - love his little pointy chin. You're going to have the sweetest summer.

Congratulations! He is, as so many have said before me, aDORable. Love new baby pictures, enjoy your summer with your son!

Congratulations on the birth of your son. He is just too cute! I hope all is going well with you and yours.

Terrific photo -- and photo placement on the page, with him looking to my right, skeptically, and your photo shows you looking slightly to my left, equally skeptically, is brilliant.

Awwww...congratulations to you and your husband on your new arrival. He's adorable :)

LOVE that grumpy face! How appropriate for your son to be scowling! He is absolutely beautiful.

Congratulations! What a cutie. My daughter thinks Greg must have a bit of Boston Terrier in him. Enjoy having him in your lives.

Congratulations to you and hubby on your new baby! Love you knitting and blog, and so glad to see a healthy baby boy!

Adorable baby Gregory seems to be having some issues. I'll bet you can't wait till hear what he has to say! You are going to be having some fun.

Seriously cute baby!! What a great expression!

He is just beautiful.

Congratulations! What a cutie!

So Cute

Beautiful child of great grump-iness! love to him and you!

Congratulations on your beautiful son!

I just LOVE the expression on his face!

Are you sure that's not a picture of you as a sweet little babe, because boy-o-boy does he look like you and THAT'S WONDERFUL. Congratulations.

Congratulations on your gorgeous baby boy!

He's absolutely adorable! At my age, though, the best thing about babies is being able to hand them back to the mothers.

I didn't comment on the first photo because I thought that enough people had already commented and you might get so-many-comments-in-inbox-new-baby-oh-my-god-i-have-a-gorgeous-baby-boy-when-will-i-ever-sleep overload.

But this time I can't help myself. He's delicious. I couldn't be happier for you. Really--is there anything you create that's not perfect?

I love his expression! He's trying to get it all sorted out...

What an adorable little primate you've produced! : ) Congratulations to you and welcome to Baby Boy.

Omigod adorable beyond words! I echo the previous poster--a gorgeous FO. And WIP, come to think of it.
Many blessings!

I'm a friend of Diana Troldahl's, and out of curiosity, clicked on her Grumperina link. I'm an occasional old grump myself, with the accent on 'old' -- nine squared.

Just wanted to say what everyone else has said -- your baby is adorable.

loving the pic of your new baby boy...cutie

What a precious baby! Love, love, love! The pot-holders are nice too...

What a sweet boy! Congratulations! I love the attitude! Enjoy him. Boys are awesome!
