On the Needles and.........Waiting!

It seems that waiting for a baby to arrive causes a severe case of startitis!  Not only did I cast on this cute sweater (Tea Leaves pattern on Ravelry) as well as another baby item,




but I also started these mitts. The pattern is called Point Reyes Mitts and can be found in the Classic Elite Yarns newsletter,  #160.


Instead, I should have been finishing this little guy's baseball sweater which is half put together. "Oma, what were you thinking?"



These flowers kept us waiting and seemed to be buds forever, but this week they showed themselves.  Fuchsias remind me of tiny ballet dancers!



Finally after receiving the wrong book first, the mail brought the book with the sock pictured in Kathy B's post. It has a bunch of fun looking sock patterns including the one with pockets. And yes, the pattern for the teddy is included! Maybe I need to start that??? No, really, I do need to finish that sweater for Max.  (BTW, baby isn't really due till mid-August.  Just think how many things could be cast on before then!)

Beautiful flowers! I'm like that, before I finished one quilt for the new grandbaby, I started another.
What beautiful yarn.

OH start those pocket teddy socks! Thanks for the shout out.

I love the blue yarn you are using for the lace pattern

It's too warm for a sweater, so go ahead and start the socks. . .says she who has multiple projects on needles scattered throughout the house.

Your flowers are gorgeous!

Knowing your stitching, you'll have them all done and finished before mid-August! Pretty things - including the flowers.

Cute little sweater, Judy. I love the pretty blue yarn for your mitts. I've been wanting to cast on a new scarf and a pair of socks but have resisted so far. Not sure how long I can hold out. :-)

Hi Judy! Oo you must be so excited waiting for grandbaby to arrive! Glad you're keeping busy with baby projects! Love the roses on your new header.

Dee said...

Oh my gosh . . . you have knitting ADD! LOL

The flowers are BEAUTIFUL!

Hope the baby comes soon and that her sweater is FINISHED. Better get going on that baseball sweater too. Kids grow so fast.

What beautiful little baby projects!!! I need to get busy and make a little sweater for my baby granddaughter before cold weather hits. And fuchsias remind me of tiny ballet dancers too :*)

I'm not one for being patient and waiting. Love the sweater and maybe you can have a race of sorts will the sweater be done first or the baby's arrival???
