A big announcement!

My sweetie and I are having a baby!!! I officially start week 7 of pregnancy today. It's been great so far (I probably just jinxed myself and will start throwing up once I post this!). So far I've just been real tired and don't want to eat anything other than bread. Of course I force myself to eat my veggies and some meat once and a while.

If you're a normal reader of my blog then you probably guessed correctly that the baby bolero is actually for my little one! It's the baby's first knitted cardigan. There will be many many baby projects over then next 9 months (well, probably the next 4 or 5 years, however long I can get away with making clothes and toys for the kid before he/she gets embarrassed.)

All knitting goals I posted around the new year have flown out the window. I'm going to try to work on the secret project #2 because that still has a serious deadline. And I think I am starting that whole nesting thing and really want to get all the other UFOs done before the baby gets here. I do have a few things planned for the baby though:
1. A blanket or two. I'd like to make one quilt, which will probably wait until we find out if it's a boy or a girl. I've got a great quilt picked out for a girl but it's not boy appropriate. I can start right away on the knitted blanket though. I'm making a pinwheel blanket. I just need to order the yarn from knit picks.
2. Lots of little baby socks from the sock leftovers. We're going to have matching socks!!
3. A few little sweaters from the Debbie Bliss baby knitting book (I can't remember the name of it.)

I'll keep everyone updated in excruciating detail!!

Congratulations! Baby stuff is so fun to knit, maybe because it's quick most of the time. Your little one will have the best socks around.

Congratulations! I love kntting baby stuff (thank goodness I have 3 grandchildren) and I love new babies. I'll be keeping an eye on this blog and your progress (gee! I kind of sound like a creepy stalker and I'm not...honestly!)

anyway enjoy the pregnancy and the knitting.
