I always love these threads! So inspiring to see what some mamas can do. I have started on a little crochet short sleeve sweater. I don't think it's appropriately sized for a newborn, although my last baby was over 10lbs so it may be alright. To be honest I'm hoping this baby is a little more petite. I'm using this pattern: http://www.yarnydays.com/2009/01/bombay-love.html
Here's my progress,
The off white will be the edging, and I'm going to get a few cute buttons rather than do the cord closure. I'm going to make another sweater in the off white and use the blue as edging.
I am also hoping to start on a blanket like this soon http://www.aestheticnest.com/2010/08/sewing-heirloom-cut-chenille-baby.html, but since we are team green this time I'm having a harder time picking fabric. Do you think this is too girly for a unisex blanket?
I made this little mouse with my daughter today. Not crafting for baby, but it was fun. Today was my first day of productivity in weeks! So happy I'm past 12 weeks now.
Does anyone else watch "Call the Midwife"? I am so inspired by all the lovely handknits the babies in that show wear. I can't knit for the life of me, but I'm hoping to do tons of crochet before this baby is born so he or she can be just as well dressed. A girl can dream, right?
