Knitting Adventures Lately

As Breck is getting closer to her due date I have been pulling out some of my crafting skills to get some cute stuff out for the future Hum Baby. I started with sewing a pair of the really cute booties and then was going to do some Kimono PJ's but the booties have given me a lot of grief so I have put them aside to get some knitting in. Luckily I have a nice stash of soft yarn to choose from to make some cute stuff. I haven't knitted in a very long time and have several projects that are half finished sitting in my drawers longing to be completed, probably won't happen for a few more years but at least I have looked at them. What I love about knitting is it is really easy to do, the instructions are soo straight forward and I don't need lots of pictures to reasure me that I am doing something correctly. Unlike sewing where step-by-step visual instructions are almost mandatory or I freak out and stop what I am doing. I whipped up a pair of grey booties and a lovely tan hat that Hum Baby can wear on his/her little self right away. I will have a few pictures of those later when I get around to it.

I have this great knitting book that shows you how to make all different fun decorative stitches. I was browsing through it and was trying to come up with my next project that I could use some of them and luckily a friend was having a baby shower. I made this cute little pom pom hat with a diamond pattern which was way more fun to make than the plain stitch that the pattern suggested.
