I want to knit something for the baby, but nothing is looking good. This being the 4th, I have no shortage of hats, sweaters and blankets and I could knit teddy bears in my sleep, so I'm looking for something different, but I don't know what.
Anyone have any ideas for something fun? I can't do dpn's but circs are cool.
(I can't believe I'm even asking this as I have four unfinished projects on needles right this minute, and yarn on order for a 5th project!
This knitting thing is really a sickness, isn't it?)
I totally understand! For this babe (#3 for me) I am making a 'ghan (as is standard for me) but it's knitted (all others were crocheted) from the center out (LMK if you want a pattern) and making a stuffed elephant. Otherwise, I did make a pair of mocs, but I doubt he'll need them as he's due to arrive the end of May and we live in the firey furnace (aka AZ)...
My suggestion...search ALL the pattern sites you know of. That's what I did, printed out a bunch, but nothing really interested me until I found this blanket and the elephant...
I made the wooly wonder wetbag (out of leftover lamb's pride bulky) and it turned out great. (The site is timing out for me or I would link, just go to the wooly wonder site and look for the free patterns.) It doesn't sweat at all and expands quite a bit. Here's a pic of mine, not my colors of choice, but it used up some leftovers.
