Baby Knitting Scrapblog

gratuitous cuteness

isn't he one of the cutest babies you've ever seen??? :)

First Steps!!!

I just had to post this - My baby girl took her first steps last night!!! AHK! :) So excited, yet so emotional about it - my little baby girl is growing up!!!

actual knitting!

I FINALLY finished this little baby jacket for my friend's baby - of course, he's gotten so big, that if he even fits into it at all, it will be for like 5 more minutes! Oh well, not much I can do about it now! I decided not to do the velvet edging, because just the knitting was taking so dang long, and I couldn't figure out how to do it without being such a pain.

I think it turned out pretty well despite the lack of trim :) Hopefully there will be a baby fashion show picture shortly.

I have now started a little baby blanket for another friend, but all I've done so far is wind the yarn into a ball - well really, SEVERAL balls because it was such a tangled mess!!! It seems there were 2 lengths of yarn (at least) and they got wound really weirdly, so it was impossible to find the right end, and it was pulling from the outside of a center section of the ball!! That was rather a nightmare...

Hopefully I'll be able to make more time for knitting in the future so this blanket doesn't take forever. Luckily, it's not a sizing issue to worry about :)

Don't you hate it when... don't have any time to do anything but the absolutely necessary things??

Baby has been growing like a weed, is now cruising around the furniture, crawling everywhere super fast, and saying a few things - "uh oooohhhh," "mama," "dada," "memo" (Elmo), "hi," and "buh bye." Craziness!!!
