Yesterday was the National Residency Match Day (always the 3rd Thursday in March) and I successfully matched at my top choice program – Loyola University Chicago’s Anesthesia Program! I’m so lucky to not only be training at such a great program, but also to keep my home nearby, for my husband to keep his steady job, and to be able to move forward with preparations for our next big adventure (our Baby Girl due in June).
As an added bonus, several of my classmates also matched at Loyola and I’m looking forward to spending a lot more time with them! They are all wonderful people who I’m looking forward to working with.
I’ve been eying the Purl Soho/Purl Bee Toadstool Rattles for a long time and now I have an excuse to make a few! Plus, a friend of mine said she’d be willing to part with some sock yarn scraps, so I’m hoping that I can make ones that are extra psychedelic looking.
I’ll make sure to post once I get them cast on.
I’ve made a point of not purchasing any baby items for a while, but now I’m clearly ramping up. First the yarn, then the campfire light, now the first piece of baby clothing. It was just too precious to pass up. It’s a little Zutano 0-3 month old hat with owls on it! I’m a sucker for wildlife.
I bought it at Majama’s in Oak Park, IL.
My DH’s parents both grew up on farms and so when I was searching on Ravelry for bunting patterns, I thought this one would be fantastic, not to mention funny. I’m making the 3-6 month size so that it’s wear will coincide with Halloween and harvest time.
I’m knitting it out of Berroco Comfort in:
Unfortunately, the gauge wasn’t working out because this yarn is worsted, rather than sport weight. So, I just adjusted the pattern instead. I’m also adding a hole in the back for a car seat strap to go through. In the front, it will just go through the snaps.
I hope my baby is as cute as the one in this picture!
