I've actually been knitting!!

Yes, that's right - actual knitting content on the knitting blog!! (of course, I also have baby-knitting, and just baby-stuff to talk about) hehehe So, I remembered to take a picture of my morning dog-walking hat, and I think I've decided to make myself a scarf too to match - but of course, I started a baby thing instead of that... hehehe The pattern is from a Patons booklet, which I can't remember the name of right now, but I'll add it later if I remember... it's not on their website, so I can't find it at the moment!


It's very comfy, and keeps me toasty in the frosty mornings (poor Muggsy just fluffs up the hair on his back, but I have a warm hat!)

I also finished the knitting on a little dress for the baby!! It's from Debbie Bliss Special Knits, but I decided not to do the pocket...

I still have to block it, but I think it turned out pretty cute! :) hehehe

Then there's cute outfits we got for the baby from my sister, and a beautiful quilt made by Gramma!!


Then of course, there's nursery painting going on... I put a second coat on the palm tree (but I took this pic of it before I did that), and then I did the first coat on the shell that will go over a new bookcase. Hubby will have to help move the dressers out of the way so I can do the other ones!

I think it's going to be super-cute (if I do say so myself!) - I'm excited to finish, and to be ready for baby to come!!!! Of course, we have plenty of time left - I'll be 24 weeks along (out of 40) on Wednesday!

you are doing a great job on the painting! i am so impressed! That quilt is just beautiful!! My mom is making Gretchen a quilt, too, but it's more neutral because she started it before our US and she was hoping for a boy, I think. My other girls have quilts, too... DD1 has one my step-mom (at the time, they are now divorced) made, which is neutral in yellow & green and DD2 has a raggedy Anne and Andy one that she got when she was in the NICU (they have ladies who make them for the babies there). It's red & blue, of course. Anyway - I just think quilts are so special (in case you couldn't tell!) Too bad I don't know how to quilt either! HaHa
