hey look- some of that stuff I’ve been knitting (and a special day too)

4 Comments

I finally got around to taking some progress photos last night. It was really late so forgive the flash…but feel free to admire my new couches as the background! 🙂

This is the progress on the BullsEye Pinwheel Baby Blanket I’ve been carrying around as my “work anywhere” knitting. It doesn’t look like much right now, but will hopefully look good once the bind off frees it from the confines of the circ I’m working on.

I’m at row 38 and have calculated that I want to be at row 47 and either bind off, or work an edging, so the end is in sight!

Also, this weekend Maaike and I started knitting(along) Baby Surprise Jackets. Here’s the progress on mine as I went to bed last night.

I am at row 76 of the 114 row pattern.
Here is how it will look when properly folded and seamed. I’ve decided that I will make the buttonholes on both sides as per the pattern, and will wait until our baby is born to choose buttons. The blue and green is pretty unisex in my opinion, but if we have a girl I think I’d like to put little flowers or something to push it over the girly edge.

I couldn’t end today’s post without mentioning 2 special things.

2 years ago, today, Yannick and I got married. Happy 2nd anniversary, my love!

And perhaps even more special than that, today also happens to be Yannick’s birthday.
(Yes, chosen so he wouldn’t forget the date).

Happy birthday sweetheart!

  1. Hey!
    Nice projects.
    Just to let you know, I did Mack's BSJ in SPORT Lorna's Laces and it almost no longer fits him anymore, and he's only about 11 lbs. (2 weeks ago he was 10 lbs 11 oz). So he's probably just over 11 lbs now. You're probably going to get use immediately out of yours, when baby X?Y? is born.

    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!

    Happy birthday Yannick! (I wrote on his facebook wall & yours too!)

    xoxo
