Baby, baby, baby!

I have a feeling that I am going to get familiar with a lot of snuggly yarns as I start knitting for all the impending babies. I’ve done the math: I currently know about seven (yes – SEVEN) pregnant women! I will be knitting a little something for about five of them. There must be something in the water in this town, because last weekend I saw pregnant women everywhere I went! The mall, Ikea, Target, Chipotle – of course, a co-worker pointed out that those are placed you’d find pregnant women, but still. I feel like there was a “let’s all have babies in the Fall” meeting that I wasn’t invited to! No problem, I don’t plan on making babies for another few years.  ;)

Here is baby sweater #1:

I just need to block it and sew it up – yay, my favorite part (are you sensing the sarcasm here?). It’s made form Blue Sky Alpacas cotton yarn which was a dream to work with. It’s so soft and smells really good. Who would have thought that a great smelling yarn would make it so much better to work with?

I’m excited because there are so many adorable (and quick) baby patterns out there just waiting for me to knit them up! If you’ve browse through my queue at Ravelry you will notice that I have been queuing tons of baby patterns.

Now I just need to do the research and find more baby friendly yarns to knit with. I’m staying away from wool and looking at working with various cotton yarns. The fall/winter weather is very mild in Southern California, so I don’t have to worry about making super-dooper warm knits.

    I hear ya about babies to knit for. I don’t have any myself but I swear I could knit full-time for all the babies that I know on the way. That’s OK though, knitting for babies is pretty fun when you find patterns like this. and YEY for Ravelry and FREE patterns!

    Love your color choice and that yarn is great to knit with.

    Great header too!!
