New Year, New Knitting, New News

Welcome to 2013. Happy New Year!!!!

Did you all have crazy parties and late nights? Ours was a rather sober affair mainly because.........

I'm 17 weeks pregnant!!!!

So my biggest WIP project for the year involves baking a baby.
(no it's not twins, we just dont know what it is so I thought I'd have a pink one and a blue one)

It's our first so we're starting from scratch. We have nothing and very little space for a baby so the Christmas holidays have involved attempting to clear out the spare room (who knew I had so much yarn!), buying a 'travel system' (Apparently they aren't called buggies or pushchairs anymore) and generally a lot of taking it easy and moaning about all my aches and pains.

So that's what all those knitting books were about. I figured it was time I stopped with my pointless xmas knitting and started making something I would actually use or need. I've been through the books and picked out a few things I fancy. It's quite exciting to think that I'm finally knitting something for my own baby not someone else's. 

I ordered a tonne of baby wool from Deramores yesterday (they have 15% off baby yarn until the 4th!!) and when the wool arrives I'll post about my plans for it but in the mean time I've started on this.........

I started on it last night - I told you it was a sober affair. We went to good friends of ours and just chilled out in front of the telly. Don't you just love those friends whose house you can turn up at with your knitting and they wont be offended!

I've got this far.......

It's a front and back, a base and 2 hind legs - of course ;) - and I'm just starting on a fore leg. I can't wait to get this little beastie finished and ready for our baby.

And of course, this will come in handy at some point too. You can read more about it here

That's it for now, UP is on tv and I've never seen it so I'm trying to take it in a blog at the same time - I'm not a great multi tasker.

I'm hooking up with the usual Wednesday link parties (tomorrow when they go live) so pop over to Tami's , Kristine's, Ginny's or Sue's . I have some FO's to post about on Friday so please pop back at the end of the week and if the wool arrives sooner than that I'll update you on my baby knitting plans.

Happy New Year lovely peeps. xxx
