We have a little trio of couples we know who are having or have had wee ones lately. I like the idea of knitting for babies--there's something so wonderful about putting just a little bit of wishes and hope and all sorts of other good stuff in every little stitch--it's kind of like being a good fairy. (And, by nature, baby things are small, so my patience generally doesn't run out before the project is done--a bonus!)
For these three....
Why that would be a tiny baby spoon that my talented Sweet Husband decided to whip up for this particular little guy. It has his name and birthday inscribed on the back, and--to steal a phrase from a friend--it's so cute it makes my ovaries hurt!
And the third project?
I'm not sure I can talk extensively about that one yet. It was the One-Piece Baby Kimono from Mason-Dixon Knitting, but it died in during blocking. (Non-rust proof pin + white sweater = &*%^!) But, there is no failure if you learned something, yes? And now that I know where the pitfalls are, I think the second go round will be better anyway. Silver lining, guys, silver lining.
