Happy New Year!

I only have 3 weeks of maternity leave left. Where did the time go? I will be going back to work 4 days a week and Anna will be going to nursery.

Anyway, back to the title topic: Ravelry. http://www.ravelry.com/

I love Ravelry, although it becomes really addictive and I have lost track of time on a few occasions. I like the way you can look up other people's versions of patterns and see how they turned out.

Go check it out!

I can't believe its December already - where did the year go? Time is going so quickly. I'm trying to switch into Christmas mode...

You Are a Tree

You love every part of the holidays, down to the candy canes and stockings. And you're goofy enough to put a Christmas tree ornament on your tree!

Grand plans...

...have fallen by the wayside. I had planned to knit all kinds of baby clothes for Anna, but I just haven't had time. Unfortunately, I had bought lots of yarn in small quantities for small sizes and they will no longer fit if I knit them now! I decided to buy more yarn for the patterns I really want to knit.

I'm currently knitting a pink and purple stripy Debbie Bliss baby cardigan in baby cashmerino (from Book 2 where it is green/ecru stripes). It is meant to be 9-12 months and the clock is ticking as Anna is now 8 months!

I just discovered I'm evil (or rather it has been confirmed). A bit of fun:

How evil are you?

Baby cardigan

Ribbon-edged cardigan (without the ribbon!) from 'Special Knits' by Debbie Bliss. I used baby cashmerino in pale pink and knitted size 0-3 months (2 balls). It was straightforward to knit and this is the first garment I have ever knitted (e.g. one needing seams etc). I'm pleased with the result for a first attempt.

Unfortunately the knitwear model doesn't look too happy!

Cute Bunny Stuff!

As a bunny lover it has been very hard to resist buying cute bunny stuff for the baby. I have been amazed by how many items there are with a bunny theme, particularly for baby girls. The knitted bunny was from http://www.mamasandpapas.co.uk/ and the little pink bunny slippers and blanket are from Bump & Baby in Marlow. They are from http://www.bunniesbythebay.com/ and imported from the US. Cute or what? They are so soft and furry.
Just got to hope the baby is actually a girl! Not long to find out now....

Merry Christmas!

This is an ornament I made for a Christmas stitching exchange which had a snowman theme. The design is from an old Just Cross Stitch magazine and it was fun to stitch with all the beads and fine details. Maybe I will get round to stitching one for myself someday....
