On Sunday, Sarah (my sis) and I went up to visit Jen and family. I delivered a number of knitted items: baby bolero, petal bib, hat, booties, Anouk, and the cat. Joseph seemed to like the cat, and took to calling it Jacko, which is what I often call my cat, Jack. As I've said before, Joseph knows the word for yarn (he's so smart!). When Joseph woke from his nap, and could finally speak past the grogginess, one of the first things he said was "yarn" because I was fixing some ends I forgot to weave in--oops. All things were well received, and Sarah took some pictures of the booties and Anouk. I'll post them once she sends them to me.

So what's next? I have a few things planned:
Felted bowl from One Skein
Nightie from Mason-Dixon Knitting possibly for me
Baby blanket (for a different pregnant friend) out of Brooks Farm Four Play
Tank top for Joseph from Adorable Knits for Tots
Bag for Jen, who I just found out loves bags
Cherry for me

I'm just not sure which to do first. I took the yarn for the felted bowl on my trip, but I didn't find time to cast on. I think I'm either going to start the baby blanket or the nightie. Or the felted bowl. I'm sticking to plan to restrain from buying yarn until all the new baby projects are complete. They are, but I was including Joseph's tank in that. I'm altering the rules to say two more planned projects. After I complete two more of the above projects, I can buy yarn. If the other projects aren't calling. My goal will be to complete all of those before I buy yarn. Yeah. Right.

You are so WEAK when it comes to yarn!!! :) Glad you had a good weekend, though. See you Wednesday, I hope!

I think you should do the bowl. I don't know why, but it seemed really interesting, challenging even. But who knows, I'm not a knitter.

Joseph likes the cat. And I of course LOVE everything. I can't wait to use it all (although I'm still having trouble seeing myself allowing the bib to get dirty).
