Hello all, Thank you so much for all of your congratulations, i loved all the messages popping up.
Both Rob and myself are both very excited.
So lets talk knitting shall we.
I'll be honest i havent started yet, I have been well nervous, I wanted to wait for our scan before i started so thats fine but i think i have been knitting for my friends babies so long that it kinda feels like a huge deal to knit for my very own baby. Does that sound mad?
Well what i have tentatively been doing is collecting Neutral yarn, now me and my mother appear to disagree on what is neutral but i think this is a nice mix.
Im not really a beige kinda gal, or a lemon or any other neutral time colour, i like bold colours, surely you would put both a boy and a girl in red for example?
And before you ask why of course we are finding out what we are having, I'm a knitter how can i not, i have never understood how someone wouldnt, if anything but for practical reasons , well i will have to agree to disagree on that account with many people.
So whilst i have not been knitting i have spent many a moment pondering what i will knit when i start.
I havent done ravelry links as it will take ages but i have started a Pinterest Board with things i want to knit.
So yes the list is long, some are maybe more 'girly or boy'ey' than others but i will just play it by ear i think.
Some of the harder items i am hoping my mam will do lol, is that cheating?
I like toys but im not a fan of knitting them but this is super cute
Ooh i have knit this a few times now and already have the yarn, i am using the bamboo cotton in teal, but i think i may need one in every size coz i love this pattern.
ive knit this many a time too, Little Coffee Bean cardi
ooh another fiddly but cute one
maybe more boyish but love those cables
ah who doesnt love a sausage dog stretched around a cardi?? i had many dog themed cardigans when i was little and im planning on raiding my mams pattern collection at the weekend and picking some
how cute is this
oohh a 4ply, i have never knit a 4ply item for anyone else's baby but sure i can manage it for my own lol, is that mean?
hoping i might be able to pull this off would i have a boy, but look at the tiny olive bunny aww
ooh another 4ply item (ouch)
ah cutes right?
So there you do those are my neutrals, I may very well have to quit my job in order to get all of these finished, I am trying to work through some of my smaller WIPS so i dont feel quite as guilty, i have just finished a couple of cardigans for baby violet and a couple of garments for me which i will share when i have sewn buttons on etc
Right i best get on with those buttons.
Thanks for stopping by and again for all the lovely messages we have had.
