We don't know yet if the baby is a boy or a girl, so everything I make has to be green or yellow or a neutral color - no pinks, no boy blues. Thus the hand-dyed green yarn for the sweater and booties. It is much prettier in person than the scan shows. Hopefully she'll be far along enough soon, to be able to tell if it is a boy or a girl. Meantime I am knitting for either, with greens, and creams, teals and yellows. I am so excited about this baby! Mom is doing well - hungry all the time. Better than the opposite.
I've put other projects aside and started knitting for the baby. So far just a sweater and matching booties. Also on the needles is a little hat. And in the bag are 3 skeins of blue denim yarn by Rowan for making knitted jeans, and another beautiful teal yarn to make a baby blanket out of. I do need to make more baby booties, though. They can go through alot of them. I'm enclosing two pictures - hopefully, one of the sweater I finished and one of the matching booties.
I love staying at home, taking care of our home, and our dogs. My husband is retired, and our daughter got married in June of 2008, and is expecting her first child this November 27th. I am busy knitting clothes and hats and booties for the baby boy she will have. And am so excited to be a first time Grandma.
