Kim is Knitting Baby Things

Kim came over today to get started on the baby blanket for her sister, Pam's, baby. She is knitting with Berroco's Lullaby in a mixed baby colorway. It's verrrry soft. It will have some sort of edging on it - she hasn't decided yet.

The baby shower is Feb 17th so she has to get busy with the stix! I think she should do a little hat in a coordinating color - probably blue.




Stash Enhancement just arrived!! I love the Internet! I knitted a pair of baby socks with this; when Pam saw them she commented that she would love a little sweater too! Of ALL the baby yarn I ordered and stashed BEFORE the shop closed, this was NOT one of them. I found these 9 balls in the right colorway at One Fine Yarn in CA. (thank you, Rita, great service every time I have ordered) I am going to knit a baby cardigan and hat to match the socks for my gift at the baby shower. When everyone hears about the baby shower; they immediately ask me what I am knitting.........so.........there are some great expectations to live up to. Just a "leeeeetle" bit of pressure.


Okay, after many requests, more pictures of Tugley in his sweater. He is in his/my favorite chair.







Joe is holding an oatmeal cookie over his head so I can get a picture of the hood on him. This is truly the dog version of Garfield.
I am working on a newborm sweater - have the back and front finished - working on the arms. I will try to have it posted tomorrow. It's really cute.
