Mama to three
Kristen married to DH Brad, mama to Isaiah Abraham (born on Valentine's Day 2010) and expecting a new little one in February 2012!
Nicole - I just started knitting 2 months ago - circular needles are really very easy. I was quite surprised.
Leg warmers: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...tle-legwarmers I thought these would be great for under a layette gown for easy diaper changing those first few weeks. I just started a pair but only have a few inches done.
Newborn hat: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...t-fit-baby-hat This one is supposed to fit newborn babies. So many baby hat patterns are too big. I cast on and finished in a couple hours, it looks like it will fit well.
Wallaby Sweater: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/yarn...derful-wallaby I want to try and find this pattern, I really like it.
Knitted Nursing Pads: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/nursing-pads I want to try these.
I just finished my first pair of longies (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sheepy-pants) today and other than the fact that somehow one leg came out about .75cm shorter than the other (enough of a difference that DH noticed, but I'm hoping I can block into shape LOL) I am really pleased with them.
I might try the Sheepy Sack too - seems like a smart idea for nighttime!
And that baby hat link you posted looks promising - although I'll need to hunt down some larger DPNs!
I made this hat for a friend's newcomer - yeah, it won't fit straight away, but it was a really nice easy knit and came out perfectly - and we're just starting our winter here so it'll fit before the end!
Made a pair of baby mittens to go with it.
I'm loving this hat too:
I just need to pick up some more DK yarn!
If you like doing hats, here is one I made that was fun: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Sali...eedle-baby-hat the link is to the one I made because I did some modifications to make it for a newborn. It turned out nice with the changes and certainly newborn size. But the original pattern link is there, too.
I love those baby leg warmers - I hope to get to those too before baby gets here.
Thanks for posting all the patterns.

Did you work with 2 strands of yarn together? How does that work? Of course, I suspect that our cat would take up residence in that cuddle bag long before the baby got here
Yeah, I need to get going on some legwarmers too!
I got the yarn for the leg warmers today, but I hate that I can't just go to JoAnn's or Michaels for my circular knitting needle needs - they only have 29in ones and those are way too big for the leg warmers! Grrrr
