The kitty in progress (and my filigree scissors!)
It's official. I'm hooked on making things for babies. I had no idea how fun and satisfying these little projects could be. It makes sense though. They're cute and small. They don't take that long to finish so you get to enjoy the feeling of accomplishment. They're usually soft and cuddly and make you say things like, "Isn't that adorable!" and "I've never seen anything so cute!"
Thanks to a pregnant co-worker I've discovered a whole new world of yarns and patterns to explore. My problem now is I want to make everything that I see. This is dangerous for me. Especially lately as I seem to be excellent at starting, but not so good at finishing!!
The other potentially problematic issue is a shortage of babies. I'm from a very small family, my baby days are long gone and my son is much too young to make me Nana (please, oh please, please, please don't make me a Nana yet!!). At the library there are a few other age appropriate candidates for mommy-hood, but given the other necessary components I don't see it happening any time soon! So once I've overloaded Goisa with gifts for her first baby I don't know what I'm going to do.
Today, just for fun I started making a little penguin from the baby book. He's more complicated than the kitty, but I feel confident that he'll be adorable when he's done. So far the patterns that I've used have been accurate and easy to follow. Now, if I can just get myself focused on her "real" present. I have a tendency to keep starting new things before I finish the old ones. While that's not usually a problem the baby is on his way, and I'd really like him to enjoy his gift before he heads off to college!
