Little Items for Babies on the Way
I've decided to stop fretting about the project-that-shall-not-be-named, and concentrate on some new, small projects. A co-worker is expecting a baby (third child, first boy), and a close friend is expecting a sixth child (no idea what gender, but there are four boys and one girl). This gives me an opportunity to knit up some small stuff, with the Cascade 220 I have leftover from other projects, and other odds and ends laying around. Unfortunately, some of the odds-n-ends have been around for a long time, and I no longer have any idea what type of fiber it is, never mind how it should be washed!
Socks are always good for babies in the winter, unless of course they're in onesies with feet. In any case, I'm making these socks big enough to be over-socks ... they could slip on over the baby's shoes, or onesie feet, for extra warmth in the winter. Then they could be worn as socks for a toddler.
When the socks are finished, I'm going to scout around for another project for a newborn. Perhaps another bunting ... I really enjoyed the last bunting, though I was tired of it by the time it was nearing its end!
