There's a virtual baby shower going on!

I thought I was going to be able to write one of those "I have secret knitting" posts. It's not a secret anymore, though. That's probably good. I can't keep secrets very well. hehe. So, there is a virtual baby shower going on. Kristi of Reddogknits is having three boys. All at the same time. So, knowing she loves and appreciates handknits, some blogging ladies decided she needs help covering them in handknitted baby stuff. Well, Kristi found out the first day, (We made her cry, I bet) so it's not a secret, and I can post pics of the baby knitting that I'm doing. So, here are a pair of little baby socks that I knitted a while ago. There was no baby to give them to, but now there are three who can fight over them. Then, I started a new baby sock, using Boogie's Baby Keep Your Socks on pattern. Not really a pic, since it was easier to throw the tiny sock on the scanner. I haven't used this pattern before, but so far I love it! Super quick! Scroll down on the page to see the Boogie Baby with her socks in action. She's so cute! On the top of her page she has a link to her free patterns. Creative woman!

I met my friend C this morning for knitting. We went over to M's house, and knitted and chatted. C and I have decided Tuesday mornings after dropping the bigger kids at school, will be out get together and knit time. Now I need to set up regular knitting time with cps, LD has been bugging me every night to go back, so she can play with the kids.

I'm sure there are a million other things that I could / should post about, but I want to get back to that baby knitting! Some day, after I play catch up around here, I think some of my knitting will be for the Michigan Preemie Project thing. Knitting baby things is great, and these will be for people who will love them.

P.S. thanks for the comments to my last post. I guess I really do knit more than just dishcloths. They really do make doing the dishes a bit more fun. Not that doing dishes is any kind of fun. I am thinking of how to change some dishcloth patterns into bibs. Sort of like the Mason-Dixon one, but a little different. I swear, I can knit with yarn that's not cotton! Really!!

Hi - thanks for your comment on my blog - wish I was as nifty as you with double points - I just end up in a tangle with loads of holey bits - love the socks.

There is nothing better than knitting for babies.

3 at once?!!? I think I'm going to faint. I'm glad you like the sock pattern. It is really easy and quick. It needs to be when kids grow so darn fast.

I don't know her, have never read her blog, but reading about the impending three... I almost feel compelled to knit for her myself.

Oh, a baby to knit for, lucky you. I am randomly knitting baby things now--no doubt they will find a home, thanks for the link to the very cute baby socks, too. Your socks look great!
