I recently learned that a friend of mine is pregnant so I have been in a FRENZY of knitting up baby items. So small! So cute! My eyes!
Deep excavations through my stash has resulted in 1) a very messy stash, 2) reminders that I have A Lot of Yarn, 3) I have a lot of yarn that I LOVE, 4) discovering that I have a fair amount of baby suitable items. The Pregnant Person is not likely to lovingly hand wash items so it's been either cotton (the bibs) or superwash/able to be washed but not put in the dryer. One does what one can. It's a boy (named "Peanut" for now) so no really wild flights of fancy. Doesn't mean one can't have fun though.
Mason-Dixon's baby bib pattern from their first book in Peaches and Cream cotton. One skein per bib, buttons from stash, knit on size 6's. These things are so easy to whip up.
My knitting bud, Gail and I are going to knit Pink Mimosa together. I decided to use the yarn recommended - Plymouth Yarn Linen Isle. I found someone on Raverly with just the right number of skeins which I then purchased from her. The Very Next Day I found it half off at my LYS. Well, it's a great yarn and I can easily use it for a second project.
Jupiter's Beard/Centranthus. This has gone rapidly from, "Isn't it great that something will actually grow and thrive in this spot?" to "Kill it! Kill it! It's EveryWHERE!!!"
The Fourth of July climbing rose came down and much blood was shed tying it back up. It has thorns, very BIG thorns.
