Making stuff...

Hi there! I'm still here busy making stuff. Like a baby... and a lot of knitwear. I have been knitting, I have. I just never got round to posting about it. I chose to channel my energy into knitting rather than to write about it. Crazy though, with all this spare time on my hands now that I'm on maternity leave, you'd think I'd manage to do both... Well, I have no excuse, it just didn't happen. So I'm making up for it with a bunch of FO pictures.
I'm in the 39th week of my pregnancy, so it won't be long now. I can't believe how fast these last months have gone by. It's really hard to imagine that this kicking sprout inside me is going to turn into a real baby soon. I CAN'T WAIT!!
The blue and the multicolored cardi are from Marie Claire's baby knitwear book (dutch title: Babybreiwerk 50 modellen voor babykleertjes). The orange mini bolero is from One Skein and so is the little hat. If you want more info about the materials or other stuff, don't hesitate to mail me. It's just so boring to write about that stuff and I mostly used bits and pieces of yarn from my stash (of which I'm very proud... baby clothes make for great stash cleaning).

Next time I'll show you a buzzzing outfit I made for my friend Karen and a baby blanket I whipped up in one day (OK, they were 15mm needles, but still..)

So, now I'm back to my W.I.P, this little number from Garnstudio.com, great site for free patterns! Meanwhile I'll just wait for the baby to come (please baby, come, come!!) and knit merrily on!
