Wee Wednesday: New Booties and the Christmas Market


I started a Facebook page for Knitted Bliss last week. It's pretty brand-spanking new, but there will be sneak peeks and extras in between blog posts. Maybe there's even a sneak peek up there right now....

We've been attending some Christmas-y events around Toronto lately, namely the Swedish Christmas Market and the Distillery District Christmas Market. I have a thing for Christmas markets, it seems. I love the decorations and little stalls selling mulled wine, ornaments, and gifts. There is music and a chill in the air, and it's totally okay to drink your body weight in hot chocolate. What's not to love, really!

I also cranked out a new pair of Lila's booties over the weekend, this time in a lovely Jewel tone to match her bonnet. Ravelry project page is here.

I can't believe Lila is almost eight months old, time is going by so quickly! I'm so crazy in love with her, she's so smiley and happy, and every day I feel an immense sense of gratitude. How did I get so lucky? There we were, walking around the markets and taking photos, I was watching Guy and Lila and I thought,  that's my family. The man I love, and our precious baby. And they are all kinds of awesome.

I swear Lila keeps getting MORE adorable. I don't know how that is happening but dear lord she is the cutest!

That pop of purple at head and toes is just perfect! Cutie, cutie, cutie. Lila also seems to love going anywhere and everywhere.

Love your photos - there's a lot to love at holiday time in the North. Enjoy every little minute of it.

What a beautiful post! Those moments of gratitude and love amongst the busy-ness of everyday life with a baby are SO wonderful. The Christmas market looks so wonderful! Somehow, the US seems to have missed the memo about how amazing Christmas markets are. I don't think I've ever been to anything similar in California. (Or maybe I just live under a rock??)

Love this post and your declaration of love for that terrific family of yours! Lila's new booties look very nice. I haven't been to any Christmas markets yet this season but your description makes them sound like a good time indeed.
