I've been knitting. Actually, I haven't stopped knitting. But, being as close as I am to having this baby, I am happy to report that but for a few small, non-essential projects I'm working on, I've run out of things to knit and yarn to knit it with. And that's a good thing. So, here's what I've knit the last little bit:
This darling baby sweater. I did this as a test knit, so the pattern isn't available yet. I really love it! And, with the leftovers I made one of my favourite hats to match. Its a 12 month size, so hopefully it will fit my baby in the winter. If this baby is anything like my boys, they will be monsters, so that shouldn't be a problem.
I did take an action shot of my favourite (at the moment - I'm reserving that spot for another baby soon enough) baby. Here's Sam, modelling the sweater.
And Silas wanted in on the action. A little small, but he sure is cute!
And then, using elements of the sweater above and this one, I knit up this one, which I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
And, Eli. What more can I say.
And, coming soon to a blog near you, this is a sweater I designed all by myself! It is currently in testing, and I am so excited for it. I love ruffles. Thankfully, if I don't have a girl, my sister-in-law Laura is having one, so it will be worn. Feel free to ooh and aah and wait with baited breath until I release the pattern. Yeah!
So, now I just have to finish the quilt I've made (just needs 3/4 of the binding sewn on), the birth bin gone through, the house kept clean, and I'll be ready for this baby. Oh, and I would love to magically wake up to a freezer full of meals. That would be magical.
