I’ve just finished this adorable acorn hat for young Albert, whose parents L&S are expecting him in July. I will start his blanket this weekend, and then get working on gifts for K&G’s new bay due later this summer, they just found out it’s aboy too. I was soooo hoping it would be a girl ‘cuz I want to knit a blanket in this super yummy persimmon (at least that’s what the folks at Cascade yarn call it) colored wool.*(note color #824) I guess I will have to knit a throw for my own damn self.
I’ve been worrying about what to do with my myself between baby shower and Xmas gift season. As freaking hot as it gets in Austin, I can’t stand the thought of not knitting for the summer. I believe my little Stitch n’ Bitch group will be knitting some preemie hats and baby blankets for local charities so our needles don’t get rusty.
