...so what do I knit!! I've been dreaming of the day that I'd get pregnant again just so I could knit more small things. Now I don't know what I'll work on!<br><br>
Sweater<br>
I don't tend to dress up my babies in actual clothes, (just sleepers and such) until they're a few months. This will be a winter baby though...sweaters are fun to make.<br><br>
Soakers/Longie<br>
Gotta make some of these. I made a bunch for ds but he really didn't wear them much. I had other covers I liked.<br><br>
Blanket<br>
Will I actually use it?<br><br>
The Babywearer<br>
I do wear my babies after all!!<br><br><i>Please share what your dream project for a newborn would be!</i><br><br>
Oh, I won't be finding out the sex either. There are so many cute girl patterns but I gotta go unisex until baby gets here.<br><br>

Don't know of a pattern for one, but how about a nice wool sleep sack like <a href="http://www.greenmountaindiapers.com/wool_sleep_sack.htm" target="_blank">this one</a>? I <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> mine for my little guy - it keeps him warm without a blanket, lets his legs touch each other for warm skin feedback, and works as a diaper cover all at the same time! I just put a cotton shirt on over it to keep his shoulders and arms warm without wicking moisture from his dipe.<br><br>
Edit: Oh, and I forgot to say CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

That's a good idea but that picture is wierd...How come the leg part is SOOO big when the waist and shoulder straps are so small?<br><br>
If you have any extra bits of yarn, afghansforafghans.com is trying to get as many newborn hats and booties/socks as possible.

I'd be making the Big Bad Baby Blanket and Umbilcal Cord Hat from Stitch 'n' Bitch...I love that blanket, I'm stocking up on Koigu so I can knit it when I get pregnant.<br>
I agree with Pikkumyy...that pic is strange. Is it just me or does it look like a hot water bottle cozy? I've probably been looking at the YKW blog too much, I'm feeling snarky.

LOL, I guess it does look a lot like a hot water bottle! Once babe puts it on, though, that ribbing around the waist stretches out, and it has a much more gentle, normal curve from the fitted chest to the looser leg section.
