As my second book goes to print and my second baby takes forever to get here all I have to do now is wait. Waiting is not my finest hour so of course, I knit. I knit and think about what everyone says about second babies: you just don’t take as many pictures of them. I’m beginning to think this must be true because I already take fewer pictures of Hunter than when she was REALLY little and lately all the pictures of her are blurry, not because I can’t take a picture but she’s a mover and shaker and I love that about her.
This got me thinking about baby #2’s knitted wardrobe. It is a little sad really! He has a pair of booties and 1 sweater. Although I plotted many other knits, I haven’t actually managed to cast on for any of them! I’m pretty sure Hunter had several sweaters, a blanket, many many hats, three pairs of booties, and a couple of pairs of legwarmers by this time! So today I cast on for a second sweater but I’m really hoping babe gets here before I’m done!
I’m working with a new yarn in the shop, Madelinetosh Tosh Sport. We have a gorgeous rainbow of colours, which I was immediately drawn to and I picked up some Grasshopper, Cousteau, and Chamomile to make something a little crazy, a little bright, and a little Fair Isle. It’s machine washable but I have to admit I still hand wash all my knits. It’s a great habit to get into and it’s really not that bad!
