My niece has a name! (I finally gave into the urge to call my sis this morning)

Te(a)gan- “good-looking”, Irish. I’m not certain (yet) if they’re using the traditional spelling or not…

A, my sis, said the name “just fit”. She sounded so happy when I talked to her this morning. It’s so wonderful. I know she’s wanted a daughter for a while. She even said that she “wouldn’t mind” pink baby clothes. I’m not certain if that was the exhaustion talking. It turns out, now that we have the info first-hand (not thru a 3rd party) that baby T was 7lbs, 4 oz and 19(!) inches long!! Eep. Poor A. She had a time with delivery.

Everyone, but Mum and I, hate the baby’s new name – but, pshaw! I like it. It’s a great name.

So, yay! Much rejoicing on this end. We’re talking about all coming down to visit around Sept 15. Even more rejoicing – that means I have more time to finish the blanky, start a baby blanky, and work on little gifts.

Yay, all around.

Anyway, Opus is in town and will (hopefully) be picking me up in 45 mins. This is turning out to be a pretty cool day…

About the Author fyberduck

I love socks, lace, and all sorts of ‘traditional’ knitting subjects. I studied Classics and textile history (independent minor) at Uni and have a love of anything ancient. That said, I also like to mix it up with modern shapes and silhouettes, often with a little tradition thrown in for fun.


  1. That’s on the low end of average for a baby’s length. My friend’s son was 19″ at birth and 7lbs 1oz and he was so tiny. Teagan is a beautiful name, although I am partial to all things irish.
