I know what you're thinking... FO???? Where did this project come from???
Let me explain...
We live in a large townhouse complex with small yards and houses close together. The road is private, and quiet and when the weather is nice,
everyone is usually hanging around in the front yards/garages.
But come winter, everyone hibernates, and the complex becomes a bit of a ghost town.
So this weekend, while I was out puttering around my gardens , Dave was reacquainting himself with neighbourhood friends. Saturday afternoon, I took a break, and Dave came in with a big smile on his face. "Justin's wife had the baby this week! A little girl!" he tells me, much to my consternation - I didn't even know she was pregnant!
It could have been just that we hadn't seen each other all winter... but Dave has seen Justin a few times - and no one informed me of an impending baby!!! That's just not a nice thing to do to a knitter.
Thankfully, babies are small and baby knits are quick. I knew I had a couple skeins of Twinkle Cat DK around in a nice, girly pink. But do you think I could find them???
To make up for the lack of proper notice, I had Dave drive me over the Lens Mills where I picked up a couple balls of Kroy Socks. (Perfect for babies... almost indestructible, totally machine washable and dryable, and softens quite nicely after washing). Saturday night I cast on for Wee Liesl...
