Yarn Along {11} :: Baby Things

Finally! I am finally able to get to the baby items on my "want to knit" list! I finished all the shawls I was knitting as gifts, and on time, so now I can settle in with some soft, colorful, yarn and create mama made knits for the little blessing due to grace our presence in a few short weeks! The nesting stage has begun, full force, and I cannot get enough of all the sweetness knitting for baby brings! I cast on, quickly cast off, and cast on another, right after the other!

I finished this cute hat and booties set in about 2 days! The striping effect of this yarn is just perfect for a summer babe! It reminds me of watermelon!

I am now starting on this sweet little dress using the same yarn, so she has a matching set! Knit in the round from the bottom up, it is proving to be an easy, quick, knit! And, it is seamless, which is a huge plus for me, for I dislike, greatly, having to sew up seams!

I have to say, all this baby knitting is making me more anxious, than I already am, to meet our newest little blessing! I cannot wait to see the little hat on her head and the booties on her little feet!

My reading has taken a back seat lately. I am still reading, just not as quickly and as much as I normally do. The knitting, nesting, and baby fever, has completely taken over! However, all that being said, I am reading a wonderfully suspenseful mystery titled Gone to Ground. It takes place in the southern town of Amaryllis, Mississippi. Six murders have taken place in this small town in the past three years and three seperate women are convinced they know who the killer is. Someone each of them is very close too! It is a fast - paced read, which I love, that has me on the edge of my seat not wanting to stop reading for anything! I will most likely have it finished in no time!

Linking up once again with Ginny!

    Definitely has a watermeloness about it, perfect for the summer.

  3. I don't think there is any sweeter knitting than for a baby. I wish I had known how to knit when I was having my babies.
    I had promised myself to not buy any books during this weeks yarn along as I have a huge stack just waiting,but I do love a good mystery. ;)
    Have a lovely yarn along day.
