I know it's been a while, but I have a good excuse. I've been working on something special. Here are two of my current works in progress:
Pine Forest Baby Blanket, and a 29 week old baby a-cookin'. (And, of course, the ubiquitous Ravelry WIP maternity shirt.) Tiny D is scheduled to arrive in early October.
Needless to say, this means that knitting for myself has been put on the side burner for now. Because BABY KNITTING. Baby knitting. So cute all the time. Also, one of my good friends is due in November, my sister-in-law is due in December, and a co-worker just had a baby this month. So, baby knitting all the time!
I had grand plans of knitting myself cardigans for this, but as we all know, my two sweaters are stalled and so is the shawlette I was working on for myself. (Because baby knitting. Also because it's freaking hot and I can't even think of sweaters at a time like this.)
Here's the first thing knit for Tiny D (whose sex remains a mystery until October):
Adapted from a couple of different pumpkin patterns.
The blanket is almost done and will get its own post because it's gorgeous. But here's the yarn (Madeline Tosh Vintage) along with some Noro that will become a sweater.
Finally, here's a pair of adorable booties knit for the co-worker's new baby girl. They claim to be a size 6 month, and clearly I have no idea what size baby feet are because they seem really huge.
Pattern: Flower Stitch Booties from 60 Quick Baby Knits
Needles: Size 4/3.5mm
Yarn: Misc. Cascade 220
