  • Here’s what I love about my husband. He took a look at this vision of a hottie–with a four-month-old BABY no less–and he said, “I remember Julie. She used to wear glasses.”

  • I knew they’d be happier with their siblings . :0)
    4 months after having a baby ! 4 years & things are getting worse ! It all heads south at an alarming rate after 40 :-[
    Both your Beth’s look gorgeous.Please model yours too Ann – bet you look lovely in it.

  • Julie, you look MAH-VELOUS. And what a cute, cute baby!
    P.S. Beth is lovely! From what Rowan mag is it?

  • Ann, you need to tell Julie that it is simply unacceptable to look that way 4 mos. after having a baby, and we may need to rescind her ability to look at future Rowan mags if she continues on this path….

  • I just stumbled on this journal, and what a fantastic idea it is – not to mention a good read.

  • Ya know, I, too, remember Julie when, because she looks just the same. Eerie though, the similarity with the photo of you, Ann, from way back when, with the blonde Morticia look. I think you guys have planets aligned or something. I think I’ll start a knitting project . . . nah. But you have inspired me to scrapbook in church.

  • Blonde Morticias unite! (Hi, Buffy!) The Beth sweater can be found in the Season’s Tale book. Thanks, ya’ll, for having me as a guest on your blog!

  • Hey Julie! I remember you too and you look wonderful. But as has already been noted nobody should look that good 4 months after having a baby! As for you Buffy, put down the scissors and paper, back away slowly and start knitting already. I miss ya, by the way. And Ann, yet another wonderful result. When I grow up, I want to knit as well as you and Julie and Kay.

  • Buffy–I can see you in a back pew, your rotary cutter and photos beside you. Just tell them scrapbooking is a form of meditation–works every time, and people get all solemn and impressed that you’re meditating.

  • And welcome, Katie! Along with our Blogging for the Blogless, we Knit for the Knitless. And Blab for the Blabless.

  • OK, I’m back and it looks like just in time. ANN, check your (apparently uncracked)MDK Rule Book. Specifically, the rule that says: No photos of high school pals who look TERRIFIC either before, during or after having a baby, or even if they have no babies whatsoever. Especially if they knit. And most especially, when they knit the exact same things we knit, but in sizes meant for nymphs.
    I feel for ya, pal!! Seeing this post reminds me of the time I showed up for the Senior Prom in my gorgeous formal, with my gorgeous corsage on my gorgeous wrist, and found that the nicest, sweetest, most popular, most beautiful, and most talented cheerleader of them all (an Olympic Gymnast but for the fact that the USA decided not to attend the 1980 Olympics) was wearing the same damn dress!!! (Yes, Laurie, as I’m sure you remember, it was Tammy Driscoll.) Oh, the mortification!!!! And I didn’t even knit the thing!!! xox Kay
