I got this wonderful book from the library the other day.
It's called, And So To Bed by Lucinda Guy. She also wrote, "Handknits for Kids". (I have that too.) Anyway, the book is just precious. I wish she did more knits for babies though. I don't want to wait til the baby is 2 or 3. I did see one cute stuffed animal project that I'd like to knit for the baby though. She's a cute little Ballerina, isn't she?
So can you guess if the baby would be a boy or girl from this project choice? :) We had our ultrasound yesterday morning. I wanted to announce it right away, but I had no pictures. (And you know me, I don't like photoless blog posts...they aren't as interesting I guess.) It's a girl!!! We've already gone out and bought clothes. I'm so excited. So is Shawn. She's already got him wrapped around her little finger! (Though he won't admit it.)
In other news, I'm awaiting my Ebay buy. I've decided to do the Cabled Sweater from Vogue's Fall Issue. I ordered 16 skeins of Zara Merino Wool in a nice light blue. Can't wait to cast on! Speaking of casting on. I had to buy some pink yarn for a baby blanket. So I picked up a couple of skeins of Bernat Cotton Tots and started the first 15 rows of a baby blanket. I'll have pictures of that this weekend since the pattern isn't distinguishable quite yet.
We are also moving in about a week and a half! Moving! I'm both sad and happy. I like where I am since I know where everything is. But I want a new home with my boyfriend and kids. We got the two and two in Canyon Country. Our "official" move out date is October 3. Can't wait to do some shopping and decorating. (There's that nesting going on again!)
Dalton, however, will not be happy. This building doesn't allow animals, yet. My friend is manager and said as long as he stays inside it will be ok. But Dalton has never been an indoor only cat. I don't know what will happen. Looks like I'll have to update pictures of him in his new spots. There's enough of them in this apartment!
