 Looking ahead to 2008

Around here, December has been spent getting to know this wee one:
Lorelai Hope, born 11/30/07, 9lbs - 2oz, and she arrived with all that hair! She's my favorite FO of 2007, and I'm hoping to post many knit FOs for her in 2008 :)
One Month Old!
She's a month old already, more pictures are on my blog or flickr site (nutmegknitter).

 My final FO of the year

Happy new year, everyone!

 Taupe Ribbed Baby Jacket

Here is a really cute and simple baby jacket pattern that would look great on a boy or a girl! It is a Debbie Bliss pattern that you can get FREE from the link on my blog! I completed this one for my baby boy due in March for Fall 2008 in 6-9 months. Check out my blog for more details.

 Lemon Twist Fertility booties

A friend of mine has just been for her third IVF attempt so needs a bit of sticky dust and fertility vibes. So I knitted up this pair of booties to help out. Ever heard of the old "lemon booties, made for you with love, under your pillow each night will increase your fertility" old wives tale? At this stage, I'll try anything to help her and I bet she would too. So I added a touch of green for luck, when I dyed the wool myself with jelly crystals dissolved in a tub of water. I thought it made them look a bit prettier too (not much of a fan of lemon on neborns myself), so hopefully they will look adorable on her baby's tiny toes one day (hopefully next year!).

 So time is winding down until my little sweetpea arrives (I am 32 weeks)....

So much so that I don't think I ever posted here. But I do have a bunch of FO's:

These are just some of the finished items that I knit in preparation for my baby. I have more but I never did get to photograph them properly. Details can be found here.
