Well, of course, the knitters continue to be awesome and I am getting more knitted baby items then me or Kimi know what to do with. And, that's a good thing. I think we are getting to the point where she now will have several classes worth of gifts for the expectant mommies. So very awesome, knitters, so very awesome.
I came home from work last week to find these precious numbers in the mail (and from a woman who had already sent me two of these sweater/hat sets already no less!):That pattern for the sweater is Paxton, which is a free Ravelry download (lots of people have been asking me about it, because it is just about the cutest thing ever!)
Then yesterday, I went knitting with some of my buddies at the new LYS in Arlington Heights, and my friend Tammy gave me all these hats:
Her and a couple of friends knit them up for me. So generous ladies!
Kimi took that first huge pile home when I saw her a week ago, but here is the new pile o' baby goodies:
This week I plan to start cranking through my large-ish stash of Sugar'n Cream and start some baby bibs.
Thanks again to everyone for helping out. Keep those baby items coming! If you would like to join in the baby knitting (or crocheting!) fun, you can either join the group on Ravelry or just knit any baby item your little heart desires and then email me at jenATknittinglikecrazyDOTcom and I will give you my address so you can send it to me. I will then be giving them to Kimi to give to the women in the class that she teaches.
Happy knitting and thanks everyone!
