I've been finishing lots of knitting projects lately! In the 9 days of January so far, I've finished 3 projects, and I'm just about to finish the Upside-down Daisy hat, all I have left is weaving in all the ends...there are a lot of them. I don't know what baby this will be for. It was going to be for my friend whose last name is Daisey...but she's having a boy. If your last name was Daisey and you had a baby boy, would you have him wear a BLUE hat with an upside-down daisy on it or do you think that would be too "girly"? The hat itself was fast and easy to make and once I sat down determined to make the daisy petals, that was pretty easy too. And, I even have an extra petal because the pattern called for 6, but I only managed to fit 5 on. David says NO to the blue upside-down daisy hat, but I say, "But his name is Daisey, get it, daisy hat on Daisey baby?!?" Plus he's a baby, so doesn't that make it cute? I was going to post a picture, but it seems that David has taken the camera today, or else I just can't remember where I put it.
I made the Petal Bib from One Skein the other day for my teacher's aide and his wife who are expecting in May.
As soon as I'm done with the loose ends of the daisy hat, I'm going to start on the Little Sister's Dress for my cousin's brand new little baby. She was born on Monday the 5th, another Capricorn in the family!
Despite what one might think, all this cute little baby knitting does not give me the "itch" to have a baby of my own. I am not so easily fooled. Baby clothes are cute...babies cry when you're sleeping and don't come potty trained. But it does make me want to provide for the babies that I already have:
Our poor babies haven't seen us in a long time and probably feel like we completely abandoned them (actually, they are probably thrilled that we abandoned them, since my mom spoils them rotten!) and what better way to earn their love than by showering them with attention and presents when we DO see them? I was doing my morning internet surf and came across this contest to win some cute little cat toys at The Funky Monkey. I managed 6 entries...so I hope I get lucky for Morgan & Moby! Mostly Moby, as Morgan isn't really as playful. There is a fun-looking spider toy with ribbon legs, although playing with ribbon might make Moby think it's okay to play with the ribbon in my mom's stamping room (I have a feeling he thinks it's okay to play with ANYTHING he wants anyway). There's also a kitty cell phone...which is just what Moby needs. Wish me luck!
