I love and I hate four day weeks. It's great having Monday off, but it SUCKS when your employer tries to cram 5 days of work into 4 days.
But here's what I accomplished in the knitting realm this weekend.
First up a little baby hat for Baby Bez 3.0.
I hope it fits her. But given the weather we're having this "winter" I don't think it's going to be a problem even if it fits her for just a microsecond.
Like the yarn?
I also spun that. It used to look like this:
That's the polwarth my Youngest Younger Sister gave me for Christmas from her trip to Australia last fall.
I love the way it spun up. The pink isn't too obscene and is tempered nicely by the blue. Perfect for a mother of two boys expecting her first girl!
Next up, the second knitted baby gift for a coworker.
At Scheister, Shafter, Conniver & Dodge, the law firm I work for, so far the Class of 2012 babies include 2 girls and 2 boys.
One is Baby Bez 3.0; one is the baby boy I made the Grandma's washcloth blanket out of that super soft yarn for a few posts back; there's a fellow secretary expecting a boy around the fourth of July; and finally our IT guy's wife is expecting a baby girl about a month after Baby Bez 3.0 shows up.
I didn't have the patience to knit IT Guy another baby blanket (nor did I have enough yarn).
So when I saw this pattern, I had to buy it.
Hee hee! Adorable!
I think this will be a big hit with IT Guy's wife. He said someone gifted them a knit blanket over the weekend and she couldn't get enough of it, and he couldn't wait to bring this little computer home to her.
I'm just excited to give it to someone who enjoys the value of a hand knit object!
