Update, With Photos
Next, my friend Jodi's shower came too quick. I made a sweater for the baby. It looked small, but it works. Fine, no guilty feelings there.
This weekend I have a birthday party for a 1 year old. He's getting a cabled sweater, loosely based on Trellis from Knitty.
I checked my calendar and wholly crap, I have another baby shower on the same day. Do I have anything knit for them? No. So I whipped out my handy size 11's and off I knit. I finished the back and 2 sleeves last night, front should be finished tonight, (Thursday I'm cramming for a midterm)and I'll put it all together Friday...tada! Baby shower gift.
What is it with me and green baby sweaters???? This is the 4th green baby sweater I've knit in the last year. Why do I have so much green acryllic?
So why am I rushing around knitting with chunky yarn and size 11's? What have I been spending all of my knitting time with? The sweater for Hubs:
The body is done, the sleeves need to be redone. Ahhh, so close.
It's not going to be done for Rhinebeck, but he'll just have to suck it up. There's too many babies coming.
I also need to do the 2 front's for the blue cable surprise sweater. That's due at the end of this month.
In some serious bad news, we found out in June that my brother and his girlfriend are expecting again. It's a boy, but they were told that there are complications. He was diagnosed with Hydrocephalus. The specialists have little in the way of answers or hope for the baby. My brother and the rest of the family is heartbroken. I know I should make them something, but it will take a miracle for the baby to survive long after birth.
