Hubby's son is expecting a son come October and as a dutiful step-mother and knitter, I've finally given in to the cuteness that is baby clothes. On the weekend I was digging through my (large-ish) fabric stash for something specific (more on that later), when I kept coming across all these adorable baby-suitable prints. After a short while, I may have gotten a little bit side-tracked and started setting aside baby patterned fabrics and stopped the pretense of searching for what I had originally intended to look for. Hey, sometimes you just have to go with the flow.
Yesterday, I was minding my own business, finishing a 10th pair of socks for hubby, when I was overcome with this compulsion to flip through the Mason-Dixon Knitting that I had borrowed from the library. And there was the One-Piece Baby Kimono, just begging to be knit. Sized for a newborn. Resistance is futile sometimes. I realize that now. It didn't take long to dive through the yarn stash and find a suitably fluffy and cuddly yarn. In lovely sunny yellow. And less than five hours later I had my first baby sweater for Mat's baby. With the cutest little buttons that I couldn't help gushing over (yes, from my stash). Sorry, but no pictures today. Oh, yes. By now I imagine you would have figured out that I rarely leave the house without yarn and needles. Yesterday evening, on the way to a 4-H meeting was no exception. As we were standing around waiting for the woodsman demonstration to begin, I may have started another kimono. Actually, I did start one. In gorgeous green cotton. I'm at the shoulders already. Hee hee hee. So fun and so easy.
