Babies, Babies Everywhere!

I hope everyone had a great Fourth of July! We had a relaxing day with friends and watched the neighbors shoot of their fireworks. The neighborhood put on a better show than I have seen at some organized shows. Plus we didn't have to fight traffic.

My younger sister had a little boy back in April and I finally got this vest done. I made it in the 9 month size, so I had plenty of time to get it finished.

It is a Debbie Bliss pattern out of her Baby Cashmerino 2 Book. It is also my first attempt at intarsia. I think it turned out pretty well, but not good enough for a close up!

I don't know if I have mentioned it but between my husband and I, my husband's family and my family there are three babies due within a week of each other. September is going to be a busy month! I have started a project for my husband's brother and his wife. They are having a little girl, so I am making the Matinee Jacket from the same book I mentioned earlier. My brother and his wife are having a little boy and I am considering making them the vest as well. They live in Portland, OR and it doesn't get really cold there. So they might get more use out of a vest anyway.

I am hoping to have all these projects done and sent off before I have my little one, so I have only 2 months to go. Time to get crackin!

  1. Oh, I must make that vest! I am still pondering what baby sweater to make for your little one. Something frilly or something cute? I am leaning towards frilly!
