Making babies!

Look! Knitting!!
Admittedly, I've been in a bit of a knitting funk lately - I want to knit, just not on any of the projects I have on the needles.

But, as today's car run got rained out, I decided to make good use of the suddenly free time and finish up a project.

This little baby is for a former coworker, who's wife is due with their first child any day now. A bunch of us are going out for dinner on Wednesday, so I figured I'd better get it finished. It's not quite done - as it's getting a special outfit - but I'll explain more on that later.

I knit this in our Stray Cat - a nice soft yarn that can be washed is baby decides to goo all over it (likely - babies are gooey). It was also a perfect choice for the hair - just tie in knots and split the plies - instant baby fuzz!

I'll post more pics when this little guy gets his outfit.

In other updates - we looked at the house - and it was almost perfect. Perfect location, perfect yard, perfect parking... but not so perfect square footage. We aren't opposed to down-sizing, but we are under no delusions about the amount of space we need to keep from killing each other....

... so, we're still looking. Fortunately, there's no rush.

Oh - and Mom's been sneaking some new things into the shop... BFL, Lace, and even some Top Cat DK.... that's right, the luciousness of Top Cat.. but in DK!!!! Use the code WCYMAY10 when you check out and save 10%!

I was almost afraid to see the post based on the title!

The baby is very cute; can't wait to see the outfit.

I'd love to see some heavier weights in the shop in large enough quantities to make a baby blanket.

I want a real baby! I don't care if they are gooey.
