I'm having one of those shout-from-the-rooftop moments where I want the whole world to know that I finished all of the baby knitting and I'm finally on top of things! Now all I need is for my friends to stop getting pregnant.
My default baby gift was a Norwegian Sweet Baby Cap and a pair of Magic Slippers. This wasn't necessarily my favorite bootie pattern when I did a comparison of baby booties on my blog a little while ago, but it was certainly the simplest to knit and to finish. Considering the fact that I made 10 of these booties, I think it was the right choice. Plus, I just discovered how cute this pattern is when you use a different yarn for the sole and the upper, so when my friends ignore my no-pregnancy request, I won't say no to whipping up a few more of these slippers.
So now things are on their way to their new owners, along with one of my Hogwarts skeins that is going to a not-pregnant friend. This leaves me with free reign to do some fun little projects all for myself. I think I'll learn to core spin and maybe even try to finish the lace shawl that has been languishing on my needles for over two years. I'm excited!
