This weekend I was looking through baby stuff that I moved with us this time and I discovered the only thing that I really moved was our cloth diaper collection. So, I had absolutely zero clothing for the new baby. I had to remedy this as quickly as possible, so I planned our Saturday around going to a consignment shop that is a couple of miles from our house. Conveniently, the store is located right next door to a French Bakery, so we planned to have lunch there and get a few things for the baby. When we get there the consignment store is closed for the Holiday weekend, luckily the bakery was open (see my dessert above) - so it wasn't a complete loss. Well I'm not due for another five weeks, but I felt the need for at least a few items of baby clothes in my possession - so we rode our bikes another 16 blocks to Fred Meyer's where I picked up a couple of sleepers and onesies!
I'm not sure if I'm nesting, because my house isn't that clean, but I am definitely in preparation mode. And with this pregnancy it's all about what I can make for this baby! I finally finished my knitting project - a little blanket. It must have taken me 100 hours (at least), I think a blanket might have been a little large for my first project after wash cloths!
The blanket's not all I have been making and I went to the fabric store yesterday because I have at least five other projects I have in mind to make before this baby comes. I can't sleep at night because I lie awake thinking of Christmas presents I want to make for people!

The pattern for this blanket came from the book, Knitting for Baby.

I love the blanket! I have knit one scarf but it took me about 2 years to finish. I wanted to knit a blanket for this baby but never even got around to starting. I look forward to seeing more of your projects!

Funny, I just said to Taylor last night that I want to make most of my Christmas presents this year. I have a million projects in my head, too. There is no end to things I want to learn how to make! I think you are amazing--that blanket is so sweet and all of the delish foods you have been making lately...all this and without a car and with 2 kids and preggers. You are a rockstar. If you have a boy I will HOOK YOU UP. I have loads of stuff for newborns and Rog is so fat he didn't ever wear a lot ot them (Blaine did of course). Anyway...can't wait to find out! I love you!
