This past month has been crazy! I feel like I’ve been on an amusement park ride and while everything that’s happened has been great…I’m ready to get off for a while. So this weekend I’ve been digging through my stash looking for colors that work for both a girl or a boy. We aren’t going to find out the sex…unless it’s twins, which yes is a possibility in my family and because of a few other factors I recently found out while studying “What To Expect”. Anywho, I have this very soft merino in a nice greeny teal so I whipped up a baby hat. Of course this baby is going to be born at the end of May or the beginning of June so I am making hats extra big ’cause they won’t need it for a while.
We have knick named the baby “Tad”, short for tadpole. The monkey and I love it, the hubby hates it. Oh well. So here is Tad’s first hat. Something I just whipped up.
Also my super secret knitting is nearly done, and it’s also not super secret anymore. It’s a birthday sweater for my mom which I was making great time on and would have had it finished with time to spare, but ya know that whole job and baby thing. It was a little distracting. All that’s left is to do the sleeve shaping, seam it up, then knit the cowl neck. I can’t wait to see it on my mom. She looks great in this color and she had a cowl neck sweater years ago that always was very flattering.
