I have been knitting, the bug has bit me again! Usually, I don’t get into the swing of knitting again until Fall, but this year, I know that there are things that MUST be done before Fall!
I have finished a soaker for the baby and some longies for him/her also. No pictures yet because the yarn was bleeding (my fingers turned blue when knitting!), so I am setting the dyes as I type. I have cast on for another pair of longies and hope to have them done by middle of next week.
I have to do socks for the 3 munchkins also before the baby gets here. I really want to have them all have matching socks 🙂 All 3 need hats, as does J for this winter. Also, we are coming up on our 7th anniversary in October. The traditional gift for this anniversary is wool. So, I am going to knit this sweater for J.
It’s a pretty awesome sweater, and luckily J is small enough that I will make a size small 🙂 So, I can actually afford this sweater! 😀 However, to get it done by October 19, I need to get started on it ASAP!
For me, I want him to buy me yarn (I am not sure what yarn yet) to make this sweater. I am in LOVE with it!!!
I also need to make a sweater for the babe, and I really want to make a blanket for this one too. But, I can only do so much, so I doubt that the blanket will get done. Although, I have some beautiful organic cotton that Val gifted me…that would make such a nice soft blankie for the babe….
Ah, I find I run into this situation every year about this time. So much I want to knit and only a small amount of time to do it in. Luckily I will have lots of nursing knitting time, I love knitting with a new babe, they nurse and I knit, and they leave the yarn and needles alone!!! WAHOO!!!!
