They are finished. I found a pattern a little while ago for some Simple Crossover Baby Booties. I think they are incredibly cute and very easy to put together (although from the photo you can probably see that I need to work on my stitching skills. I'll have to get back to this one and make it look better!)
I don't actually think that they will stay on with the design the way it is, so I am hoping to find some little vintage buttons to add to the outer side of them and make a loop to hold it all together. Otherwise I'll just use whatever buttons I can find.
The other thing I decided to finally stitch together is the Easy Baby Bear Beanie. This one didn't work for me. I wanted it to be a beanie that was just a tad bigger than the starfish beanie, but with the brim rolled down it fits my 2 year old! (Guess he will be the recipient of it). It is WAAAYYY to big! I'm a bit sad really. I don't know that I could be bothered knitting up another one for bubby... the yarn was HORRIBLE. No, really. A total horror story. The acrylic chenille like yarn snags while you knit with it. If you were to drop a stitch you pretty much wouldn't find it till it was far to late to do anything about it (and would have to pull it all undone again).
... I think I may have become a yarn snob.
So, seven weeks to go (give or take) till our little Yet-to-Be arrives, and I still have a bunch of things to do!
Here's what I'm wanting to do:
Burp Cloths (some pretty ones)
Maternity Skirt for me
Patchwork cushion (for the feeding chair)
Find baskets/boxes for the baby's cupboard
Knit/crochet a jacket/jumper
And at some point, a quilt/play mat
I realise that I don't have time to do it all. I will have to be selective. Especially as the nesting/cleaning bug is starting to kick in. Wish me speedy creating! :)
So there you go. That is what has been happening in my creative space this week. Hopefully I will get a whole lot more done soon!
