I can't keep my hands out of my yarn lately. I've been knitting in the car, during lunches out, in bed. (Not while I'm driving, promise.) As a result, some pretty things to show you:
Up top: The Kid's "Slouchy Boy" hat for this winter. We're working with him on earning money for the toys he wants, so I had to pay him a whole quarter for this photo. I considered protesting, but then decided that he should get something for modeling a thick stocking cap in the middle of July.
Middle of the road: An "Elyssa" dress. This was something I started to keep busy until we found out our own baby's gender. The yarn gave me fits, but I love the finished color. It's intended to be a gift, so I can say no more.
Last, but not least: A "February Baby" for our little miss. This is my favorite sweater pattern ever, but it's hard to make it manly enough for a small fellow. So, of course, it was the first frilly thing I thought of when the sonographer said "probably girl".
I've done a lot of blue and green and grey knitting for the Kid these past few years, so I expected to go off the deep end a little into purples and pinks. But when I got to the yarn store, this blue was calling me so loudly that I couldn't refuse it. (Now I need some buttons to give me a holler, too!)
I'm hoping it will fit when she's tiny, but I put short sleeves on it so that it will work for either winter or spring.
And now I'm trying to decide what to do next. Anyone have a favorite baby knitting pattern I should check out?
