No really, someone stop me

In the last couple of weeks, I have gone baby knitting crazy. With the birth of my new niece and some close friends preparing for their baby coming in May it's all baby knitting, all the time over here. I'm fine with it.

My latest finished item? Not knitted, but a crocheted airplane:

I mentioned in a previous baby knitting post (man, it seems like all my previous posts are baby knitting posts! I swear, it will end soon) that my friends are having an airplane-themed room for the baby on the way.
And the dad is an air traffic controller, so really, how could I not make this!?

I used the Amigurumi Airplane pattern, and some Cascade 220 Superwash I had around the house. A couple hours, and this baby was done. Super quick. And sooo easy. The pattern was fantastic!

Next up? I am working on a Baby Surprise Jacket for my new niece, and I'll probably make yet another Upside-Down Daisy Hat, because that is my favorite thing of all to knit for new babies. After that, I may actually get back to my Hitofude cardi. :)


The blanket, she grows

Work has continued on the mindless baby blanket. Turns out, I only had two balls of the Chroma Fingering in Lollipop. Once I got the point where I didn't think I could make it around the entire blanket one more time, I decided it was time for a crochet border!

I did a round of single crochet, followed by two rounds of double crochet with the white. Now, I am going a little shell action with with the remainder of the Lollipop. Not sure if I will add another round or not. I am just winging it! :)

I want to knit a billion more of these blankets. So easy, and the perfect knitting for knit night. I think I want to try the circular one for the next baby blanket I need to knit!


The baby knitting continues

It's all baby, all the time around me these days. The blanket I've been working on is for my newest niece, 'Roznogunz' who was born a week ago today. I am headed to Fargo in a couple weeks for a visit, so hopefully the blanket will be done by then!
What a cutie! I can't wait to meet her!

There's another baby on the way...one of my high school friends and his wife are expecting in May. The baby boy is to have an airplane-themed room, so I had to knit the Aviatrix hat.
It's knit out of Knit Picks Swish Worsted. It took wayyy less than one ball. I love that hat pattern. I think little Roznogunz might need one too. Honestly, I might need one too!


The Mindless Baby Blanket

I found myself on a business trip last week, and I needed something to knit. Something fun, but something easy. My brother and SIL are having a baby, like, ANY DAY NOW, so I decided the answer to my what to knit? question was a a baby blanket. One of those ten-stitch garter stitch blankets to be exact.

I found this to be the perfect travel knitting. It was great for the plane rides, as well as knitting the night away in my hotel room.I'm using Knit Picks Chroma Fingering in the Lollipop colorway. I love it. It will be perfect for my niece that will be arriving soon!

Once I'm done with this, I hope to get back to the sweater I started. Although, since winter is never going to end in Chicagoland, I have lots of time to get it done. :)
