 37 weeks and finally started my baby knitting!


I'm Bertha and I'm due with my first (gender is a surprise) on 1/24! I've been hanging out in the comments since the beginning, but hadn't posted anything of my own. I wanted to plow through my holiday knitting before I started baby knitting, so I just finished my first baby knits last night! Nothing fancy, just a basic hat & sock set. I made these out of super soft Malabrigo (color: Ladrillo), both magic looped on KnitPicks circs (sz 8 for the hat, sz 7 for the socks). I've never knit for a baby before so I have no idea on sizing...I hope they fit! The only other thing I want to get done before it arrives is the ever-popular Elizabeth Zimmerman baby surprise jacket...Even though I am so ready not to be pregnant anymore, I hope it holds off until I finish it's knitting!

And for fun, here is a belly pic taken last Wednesday at 37 weeks (full term, hooray!)

Believe it or will have a minute now and again to knit once the baby is born....they sleep a lot. (just not at night)
