She has a Plan

It's been one of those weeks. The type that is hard on my brain and my body, so all I want to do when I come home is lay on the sofa and stare into space. It's times like these, when I have no creative spark but a huge need to do something, that I am glad I made a plan. And that plan involves lots of baby knitting.

Baby knitting is great because it's instant gratification meets tiny cuteness. Plus, a lot of great baby patterns, like the Baby Surprise Jacket above and the Magic Slippers below, are really quite simple to knit. All of that garter stitch makes for perfect zombie knitting. And did I mention how cute everything is?

So thankfully, I need to crank out several more hat/bootie sets this summer because I have a feeling that trying to finish my PhD may just turn me into a full-time zombie. In the meantime, these little woolies are ready to be shipped off to new homes and tiny new owners! Yay, tiny brains... I mean... tiny babies!

So true! Baby knitting is perfect for mindless, instant gratification knitting.

I hear ya on the baby knitting... lots of it right now but I think it is perfect for small, summer projects. Those baby knits are too cute!
