10lbs. 1 oz.
21 inches long
14 1/2 inch head
He has lots of brown hair, it's like an inch and a half long in the back. He
is a really good eater- and is back to his birth weight. He likes to sit
like a little Buddha when he is being held. He puts his arms up in the air

time for the embroidery. It wasn't too hard to do all the running stitch,
but some of my French knots wanted to hide in the knitted fabric. Or else my
yarn decided to tangle up on the backside of the blanket.

Country sock club or something like that. I heard about it on my favorite
knitting podcast, Lime n' Violet. It knit up pretty fast since the yarn was
thicker than typical sock yarn.
