Special Delivery

With a baby on the way in August, I decided it was best to cast on a baby blanket for him now and hopefully have it finished before summer got scary hot. I have picked out his crib bedding so decided to do a blanket in those colors.

I went to my favorite LYS (Charity's in Altoona) and Kathy helped me pick out a wonderful Cascade 128 Superwash in Navy, Red, Cream, and a Baby Denim color that had to be ordered.

I cast on the Modern Baby Blanket right away and this yarn is wonderful. It is dreamy soft and is knitting up very quickly. I will probably not end up doing as many repeats because of the thickness of the yarn but find it nice to be able to knit and knit without having to watch a pattern.

Check out the work in process as I wait for my special delivery (the Baby Denim color of course) to arrive.

Getting things together!

So life has a way of speeding up when you need sloooooooow. Right now, as I assess my list of projects that need to be done, Little Baby No Name is kicking and wiggling in my tummy demanding some breakfast. While the movements make me smile (and sometimes yelp). They are a constant reminder of all the things that need to be done in my life before he shows up.

There are rooms to clean, paint and decorate. There are new floors to install, a new fridge to purchase, baby knits to finish and things I want to do with just Sam and I before the new arrival shows up. Of course, the first thing I wanted to do was restart my blog with a fresh start. So here I am cleaning my blog out when there is so much to be done. The next three months are going to be crazy.

Let the nesting begin!
