Today, a co-worker announced that she is expecting a baby. This is means a knitting project for me to tackle. I’ve only been knitting a few years and haven’t knitted anything for babies, so this is a great opportunity to challenge my skills by knitting a blanket, booties, or a blanket. I have some thoughts on what to knit and came up with possibly knitting a cotton sweater with bottoms (pants or a skirt). It’s a way to introduce myself with finally learning how to knit armholes, and work with different yarns other than wool. I wouldn’t knit with wool this time around as it might be a great fabric for a baby for the time being, but I have entertain the idea of using bamboo, cotton, or soy because the baby is due in early spring and the winter will pass.
I have six months to decide, but time does have a way of going by us and before you know it the baby will make an appearance into the world. I will know the sex of baby, so deciding on what color to use is another consideration. This means one thing, a visit to the yarn store and building a stash, lol. Another thought is sewing an outfit, oh so many ideas and so little time.
