Great News!

Our daughter and her husband are expecting their first child......our first GRANDchild! The baby is due March 11, 2007. I've added a countdown "ticker" to the top of my blog.

I haven't had a baby around for over 22 years! This is SO exciting!

Aha! I don't have any grandkids yet, but catch myself squirreling away knit patterns for weird baby toys, cute blankies, and wonderful wool sweaters for when that day comes! Have fun with all the cute grandbaby knitting in the next few months! Congratulations!

Congratulations!!! We became grandparents for the first time 16 months ago and you cannot believe what a rush it is. Why weren't our own kids this much fun. Are you planning lots of cute knitted baby things?

Thanks everyone! We had two grandnieces born last year so I went into a knitting frenzy at that time. I think for first size anyway, between my daughter and I, we have it covered. I have the yarn for a boy baby's sweater (actually could work for a girl too though it's not ultra feminine) and I'll knit that up, but then I'll wait until I know the gender before knitting a pile more for larger sizes.

It's very tempting to SPIN and knit something, but I wouldn't want to wish "hand wash only" on a busy new mom.

My apologies! I read this post on the day you posted, but got distracted and didn't comment.
