Dangit - I'd love to join this, but apparently I am too pregnant to knit   Roll Eyes My son is due in 3 weeks (which means he could come any day now) and I am just feeling so large that no position is comfortable for long. And those that are comfortable for any period of time are pretty much impossible to knit in. Whine whine whine...

But I am actually in the midst of several baby items - a Christmas stocking for the new arrival (it's all knit, it's just needed the ends woven in and to be seamed for, oh, about a month now), a cute hoodie pullover from a Debbie Bliss book (still need to knit the sleeves and sew up), and a little cardigan from The Gift Knitter (super cute with paw prints on it: I just need to sew on the buttons - little bones and doggies).

So close to finishing so many things, and yet I've lost my knitting mojo.  Undecided

congrats on the baby!  sorry that he's getting in the way of your knitting, but i think the baby will be worth it  Cheesy  i'd love to see pics of your works in progress, though!

patamon-- that's a supercute swing thing.  how long did it take?  my sister has a girl, i'd like to make one for christmas.

kjd- i recommend the six month size.  it's easier to put a baby in a sweater thats to big than one that's too small.  babies grow fast.

crazy dog lady:  i know what you mean.  I couldn't get comfortable the last few weeks either, and my attention span was non exsistant.

anyway, i'm working on a pixie hat from crystal palace yarns, and plan on making another yoda sweater when i'm done.  it's a set for my tiny little neice, skyla.

PhoenixDawn - Thanks! It was a really easy project, and it only took about 10 days to make. I used less than one skein of Caron Simply Soft.

I'm officially joining this.  We just found out that my cousin is having a girl.  I'm thinking of making two bibs, a stuffed bunny, and this cute little cardigan I saw in the Patternworks catalog.  A blanket would just drive me nuts.

I started knitting a baby sweater for a friend of mine and thought I'd make it bigger so the baby could wear it longer.  The reaction I got from my boyfriend is that it is huge.  What does everyone think??? Is it better to make it bigger so the baby could wear it at 6-12 months?  Or make it newborn size?

sorry I haven't checked in for awhile, all my men (son, bf, and dad) have been sick.  it's hard to get anything done with sick ppl around...

those ugg boots are totaly cute!  i like the pink.

brideOFkniterstien: that is a great idea.  can't wait to see a pic of that.

yarn_nut: make it bigger.  newborn clothes are cute, but that phase doesn't last too long.  it's beatter to have a sweater that's too big b/c you can just roll up the sleeves, than one that's too small.
