This and that

  1. Baby bandanna bibs whipped up last night. I found the flannel elephant print as a remnant piece at Joanns and also ended up with 50% off the price and couldn’t pass it up. I used this pattern.
  2. Basic 3×1 toe-up socks, knit a bit larger than my own foot in hopes that they’ll fit my sister so I can gift them to her for her birthday. I’ve reached the point where I have enough hand knit socks that I don’t really need to knit more, but I’ve acquired a stash of yarn that I really want to get through, so gifting socks seems appropriate.
  3. New trunk I found for $35 at TJMaxx yesterday. I’ve been looking for something sturdy that I can use to store the Little Mr’s handmades as he grows out of them and this one immediately jumped out at me. I’m not sure it will hold all that he will end up with, and I may eventually scale down what I keep and only keep the nicer, more time-intensive knits, but for now it has quite a bit of room.
  4. I started a new Wee Austin Hoodie for the Little Mr. I had to sit in the hospital laboratory for nearly 4 hours Saturday for my 3-hour gestational diabetes test and wanted to make my time there useful. Honestly, I couldn’t think of anything I wanted to bring with me and I have 4 balls of this sock yarn sitting in my stash so I figured it would be a good carry-along project. It turns out that I knit nearly 4 inches in the lab alone!
  5. New fabric for a crib skirt – I didn’t think I wanted a crib skirt until we put the crib up and I realized it looked too bare with nothing under it. My mom purchased one for me at the thrift store for $1, so I’m going to use it as my template and cut my panels to match. I’m really in love with the fabric and how well it matches the blanket I knit, so I can’t wait to get it made and add it to the room.
