I know, I am supposed to be quilting now that all my old knitting projects are finished, but… Knitting and pregnancy just go together so well! I can sit in the lazy-boy, kick my feet up, and be brainless with a pair of needles. This is another project that I cast on and finished in a couple days. It is Debbie Bliss’ Baby Leg Warmers from her book Design It, Knit It: Babies. I used Amy Butler’s “belle organic aran” by Rowan. I am really happy with the result–they are so soft and the perfect weight. These will be for the new baby. Leg warmers are probably more on the girl side, but I figure a baby can get by with it. Plus, there is always the hope that someday a little girl will be wearing them as well. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
I have been doing an itty bitty amount of quilting. Here are some new blocks I put together. They are not finished yet, but I had to show you something to prove that I do actually sew.
I discovered that this bird print goes perfectly with a lot of my modern prints in my stash. Fun to mix them all up!
And here is what I do a lot of during my day. Mommy stuff. Elias is 14 months now and we are busy discovering new things every day.
OH MY! I loooove love these legwarmers! They are adorable and so perfect for a new baby! 🙂
