Hi everyone. My name is Elizabeth and I usually blog here. I'm not expecting and I'm not exactly a new mum anymore (my little one, pictured above is 20 months now), but I have a load of babies to knit for. I have over 30 first cousins, most of whom are between the ages of 20 and 40 and at least three of them are pregnant at any given time. Also, as a socially active women in my early 30s, the friends are having babies at a furious pace as well.
My usual standard baby gift is the umbilical cord hat from the first Stitch 'n' Bitch, knit in pink, orange or green Lamb's Pride Worsted. I've made at least half a dozen of them. I'm looking to find a few other quick things (other than booties, which my own kid would never wear, even though I knit her a pair while in labour) to spice things up. I also just found out this weekend that my brother's wife is expecting in June. It's a ways off, so I don't want to jinx anything by knitting too soon, but I am looking for ideas for a slightly larger project that will be really special. Anyway, I look forward to sharing ideas with all of you!
