Anyone who knows me at all knows that I am an avid knitter. Usually when I mention that we are expecting our first grandchild in March, the next comment is usually something about "all that knitting for baby". Truth is, I haven't knit all that much (yet) specifically for Baby. Why?
Well, I had already done some first size knitting before my daughter was even expecting. Here, let me dig through my archives and find that little set.
Ah, here it is.
Click on the numbers and it should take you (in a new window) to various posts about that little sweater set. It won a first place ribbon in our Fall fair.

The other factor that has held me back from knitting, knitting, knitting for Baby is the fact that her mommy also knits, as does her great grandma, and to a lesser extent, her auntie. Between the four of us we have knit up quite a number of things for Baby already. There are blankets, first size sets, numerous hats, and a few toys.
Don't get me wrong, I will be knitting for Baby, I just won't be knitting anything more in the tiny, newborn size, babies are that size for such a short time. I've got something a little bigger, fun, and wildly colorful on the needles right now. I'll show that to you in a few days. I have the pattern for a lovely Dale of Norway baby sweater too, but there is no rush for that. I'll make it so that it fits next winter.
