It's that time of year again. The breeders are at work, and we have several friends and co-workers who are expecting this spring. Time to get busy on those baby knits!
This weekend I started a simple pink hat, a bib, and Anouk.
The tiny blue blob is a flower washcloth from Weekend Knitting, as there are several other gifty occasions coming up.
To assist in all this upcoming gift knitting, a few new books were picked up this weekend.
One of the Borders stores near us is closing, and this weekend they had everything in the store 40% off. We did pretty well at restraining ourselves, and got several gifts. I brought home Itty-Bitty Hats (which is really really cute), Simply Baby, Toys to Knit and One Skein Wonders. I was lucky enough to get Greetings from the Knit Cafe for $4.99 from Amazon a few weeks ago, and I picked up the Jo Sharp Knit 1 from the yarn store Thursday night. I love this pattern book, and since I'm trying not to buy yarn, I thought I'd satisfy that urge with a book. There are several great patterns in here that I can't wait to get to. But first, must finish what is on the needles, and use up some of that stash!
