The year of the baby.

Well, I have wound the yarn for Carma's mitts, or wristers, whatever we are calling these. But, we can no longer call them Natalyas. I've decided on a very different gauge and cable pattern. I guess they could be more "inspired by Natalyas" but I'll need to come up with a new name.

Carma, I really like this color. It reminds me of a brick wall. I made a gauge swatch last night, and I should start on them after I do some cleaning up today. Seems I'm the only one who sees mess. Please don't tell me that's my superpower.

I also received a bit of news last night. I have yet another mom-to-be to knit for. (I'm telling you, it's the year of the baby around here.) Jill's pregnant! No exact due date yet. But they expect a late summer baby. (speaking from experience, poor Jill)

The only downside is, now when I'm asked when we'll have another, I can no longer refer them to Jill and say, "It's her turn."

I'm going to have to dig out my copy of Knitting for Baby, by Melanie falick, and my Adorable Knits for Tots, by Zoe Mellor. I love knitting baby stuff. It's little and quick.

  1. Holy COW! I'm so happy for Jill (except for the late summer part) please pass on my good wishes to her.

    Now I think I might seriously start to consider stock in Pampers ;) or baby yarn...

    Hmmm... As long as you don't start telling people it's MY turn when they ask you when you're having another one... I'm trying to think of who else you could "use"...

    Oh pics of the pre-felted bag have been taken... Now they just need to be down(up?)loaded onto my computer for posting. YAY!
