OMG, it is been a while since I pay a visit to my blog? Life really gets in the way. I have a lot to share and show but I simply don’t have the time and energy because Mr. Su and I are expecting a baby in January. That’s right, I am finally pregnant (we’ve been trying for almost a year now). As of today, I am about 17 weeks along and I feel great. My apology to those moms out there who have terrible morning sickness because I have none of that, thank God. I don’t feel particularly more fatigue than usual either. My only concern is I have not gained much weight, I hope that will change soon.
With that news, I really have not sewn or knit anything for myself. The focus has shifted to making stuffs for the baby. First up are these tiny cardigan and beanie. I don’t know whether I am having a boy or a girl but I am just practical and would like to use up my stash. Hence, these blue cardi and beanie.
Size: smallest for newborn
Yarn: 2 Ball of Cotton Sesia. This is a special yarn coz I bought it on our last trip to Rome two years ago
Knitting for baby is very quick, even before I have chance to become bored I am already done knitting it. It came out so tiny but the dimensions match what describe in the pattern. Some friends told me to knit 3 – 6 months as some babies just grow so much the first few months. I might do that with the next sweater.
Another stash buster project that I did is a baby rattle. If my baby is a boy, please forgive your mama for giving you a pink rattle
Yarn: Less than half a ball of Rowan Purelife Organic Cotton DK
I was a bit apprehensive about knitting toys, my last venture did not come out cute. This rattle is ok, it could be better but hey, stash buster is always good right? I don’t quite like how the face turns out, hope the baby likes it though
