Future Projects

I have the yarn.

Lots of yarn.

2 skeins of Knit Pick's CotLin in Celery

This will become a tiny, newborn baby sweater. (Yes for July, I know it is not sweater weather.  I'll make it with short sleeves.  Plus the yarn is cotton and linen, perfect for summer.  It will be good for air conditioning and photos.)

10 skeins of Knit Pick's Comfy Worsted in Creme Brulee

This will become a baby blanket.

4 skeins if Cascade's Ultra Pima in Aqua

This will become a maternity top for me.

I have a lot to do in the coming weeks.

As you can see the colors are pretty neutral.  I bought the yarn last week before I knew the sex of the fetus (stay tuned if you want to know too).  I wanted to use gender neutral colors anyway.  Baby stuff is way too pink or blue.  Girl or boy it doesn't matter.  It is loved. 

I should probably start on the top for me first.  What do you think?


  1. Uh, yeah, I think you should make the top for you first. That's the one you're going to need first. I like all of the colors you picked out. Baby stuff is way too pink or blue--neutrals rock!

    1. You can't escape the blue and pink. My sister in law said no pink for her daughter born last month. I'm not sure how she is going to do it.

    2. I think a little bit is okay--I like pink and blue as colors in their own right. It just becomes overwhelming when that's all there is.
