Happy Mom's Day all!!! Guess what? I'm not a mom but I did get some good mom-related news today- I'm going to be an aunt again! Yay! My sister told us this morning she is pregnant with their second and she is due in January! They are thrilled. We are thrilled. Everybody's thrilled! So let the baby knitting begin! We also found out recently some good friends of ours are also pregnant and expecting in November, so I guess I better get cracking. Gosh, even though my niece is only 18 months I feel like it's been forever since I knit baby stuff. I feel kind of out of the loop with the baby patterns. Time to do research! And of course the challenge-I don't expect either set of parents to find out the baby's sex in advance, so I'll try to make the items gender neutral. So any suggestions? Anybody knit a baby pattern recently they love? Let me know, I guess I'm just going to have to my more yarn again. Sigh.... :)

Yay! Being an auntie sounds like so much fun. I'm knitting the Baby Bolero from One Skein right now, and it's a quick, fun knit. I'll be posting the details soon, and I do have a few modifications I would make next time.

I really enjoyed knitting the shawl collar jacket from Debbie Bliss' Special Knits. I used Malabrigo, which is dumb for washing purposes but wonderful for knitting purposes. It involves very minimal seaming and doesn't get too bulky at the shoulders.

My friend is having a baby in Sept, so I'll be curious to see what patterns you find (I'm a bit out of the baby loop too, he he). I do like Knitty's Trellis pattern but I think it's better for a toddler than a baby.
