Another boom

It appears there is another little baby boom amongst my circle  - this time it's the cousins edition.

My littlest cousin Hailea and her boyfriend Chris are expecting a little boy in October.
and my cousin Sean and his sweet girlfriend, Katie (who oddly enough went to college with me - she was already dating Sean and we ended up in the same class!)
have just announced they are expecting as well. Their baby is due in January.

Fortunately - I have quite a bit of "baby" yarn in the stash already, so I think these two babies are going to go a long way to helping me surmount the stash!

I have big ambitions, but we'll see how it all pans out. I'd like to do a whole layette for each - blanket and outfit, but that might be too ambitious. Oh, and Katie's a Star Wars fan, so you know there's totally going to be another Yodagurumi!

In the meantime, I'm trying to knit monogamously on my slinky vest - but it still doesn't feel like I'm getting anywhere. I am - I've got about six inches done from the underarm, I just feel like I should be a lot further.

I've started taking it to work. Since my coworker has departed, I'm without a lunch buddy. So now I'm eating at my desk and using my lunch hour to enjoy the sun and get a few rows done. I was really hoping to have it done by the end of the month to include in my otherwise meager stashdown tally, but I don't think it's going to happen.  With any luck it shouldn't be too far into June by the time I get it finished, but we'll see... if I can stay monogamous... but I've been poking around in the stash for Colour Affection combos.....

Oh, baby knits are so fun! Congratulations all around! Maybe you need to look at Milo too - I keep seeing so many sweet versions of that.

Have you caught the Colour Affection bug too? Or Colour Infection as the Yarn Harlot called it?

What a perfect excuse to knit all kinds of cutenesses!
