we decide to conceive for a third, I just can't stop knitting baby stuff!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> And it's all girly, cause I'm totally using up stash scraps. I have made almost a whole pair of booties last night and today, and have picked up crocheting and am making a quilt and granny squares. I always felt like I would have another girl. lol. Here's to hoping I am right, or I will have a lot of gifting to do!<br>
I have no idea what is wrong with me<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nut.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nut"><br><br>
I think I am seriously nesting already, even though I am not pregnant yet.<br>
I mean, maybe it's all the stories I hear about how "you'll never do another thing with three" or how I know how hectic it will be so I am starting early maybe? Also, having scraps in my stash right now (fabric as well, been sewing A LOT lately) totally drives me nuts. it's kind of like how I have this urge to eat stuff out of our pantry, yet stock up at the same time.<br><br>
Anyway, just had to get that off my chest. i have been in hyper-drive ever since we made up our minds about a third.<br><br>
Some of the things on my list? Soakers, and diapers!<br><br>
Can anyone relate? or is it just me? If so, I will be going now.....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/Bolt.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bolt">

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I can relate....kind of. I'm a slacker knitter most of the time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
So far I have only knit one thing for this babe but I do have a million things in my head to knit. I usually get these grandiose ideas to have an all knitted wardrobe of socks and tops and covers and hats etc. I still have those plans for my 2 year old. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

The weird thing is... I have actually been doing all of these(well, most) of these ideas! Like, I am kniitng up a storm, when I usually just sit around and think about knitting half the time.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I'm not knitting for some potential baby, but I'm finally knitting for my daughter. She's 7 months old, and I've always had good intentions to make something for her. But now, I'm finally getting my fingers moving and making soakers for her.

There is something about babies that seems to cry out for knitted woolies! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/happytears.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="happytears">:

There is something about babies and thoughts of babies that makes you want to knit itty bitty things.<br><br>
My 8 yo dd just asked me this morning, "Mom, why are you always knitting pants and things for Lizzie, and you don't make anything for us?" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: .<br><br>
Guess I better get busy on some sweaters for the big girls for next winter <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> . I am thankful they love my knitting so much that they want me to make things for them <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> .<br><br>
(But baby stuff is still WAY more fun <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> )

We are ttc our first. I am convinced we will have a boy because last June I had a dream in which we were sitting on the beach with our children. In the dream we had a boy who was 3 and a girl who was 18 months. So far I've only made a couple of bibs, but I have started swatching for a LTK Easy Peasy Cardigan and an MDK Kimono.
