And no, it's not for me (I'm not pregnant). Well, there's a friend at work who just told us this morning that she's expecting. You know what that means!!!! More baby knitting! Her mom crochets, so I'm the one to knit her baby up a storm! I opened my big mouth and promised a layette set...you know, hat, sweater, booties, and blankie. Good thing I decided I wanted to do the Hoover blanket from Knitty.com (the pattern is here). Now I'll just find a sweater, hat and bootie pattern that I like. I don't expect to out-compete Grandma; just spoil the kid. There's nothing wrong with spoiling a child...as long as it's not yours...that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
More toys might follow as well...I have a whole book of knitted toys, and I might just have to pull that out and start knitting up a toy storm. Of course, I should probably finish the other projects I've started. I'm sure my friend would like for her son to get his blanket and sweater BEFORE he's too old to enjoy them (he's about 3 weeks now, and if I hurry, he'll have his blanket in another week, and maybe 2 for his sweater).
I AM going to get those pictures this weekend that I dropped off at Wal-Mart about 3 weeks ago. I SWEAR. I have it on my list. I'm going tomorrow, some time. I promise...no really.
