Well... there are two.... not quite a boom, but enough to have me crafting away. One has already been born (just a couple of weeks ago) and the other is due in November. I haven't really been in the mood to knit for them, so I thought I'd make some quilts this time around.
The first baby, belongs to my coworker in California. For her first child, I knit the Kittens and Butterfly blanket, so I thought I'd stick with the cat theme and ordered up some fat quarters. At the time I ordered them, I didn't know the gender of the baby (it's a little girl), and I thought these colours went nicely with the cat fabric, while still being gender neutral, but fun!
The next baby is a little boy who will be born to a pair of Dave's guitar students (don't worry, they are adults!) so I thought a guitar theme would be in order.
And while not quilt fabric, I also picked up some more light cotton to make another pair of lounge pants
So I guess I have a lot of sewing and cutting ahead of me.
