no baby!

i'm sorry! false alarm....i did have lots of contractions last night and i couldn't sleep but baby is still womb side...

but, i did finish the 2nd kimono sweater last night and with about 14 inches of yarn to spare! i was sure that i would run out and have one sleeve with just a few rows left and no yarn but it worked out perfectly. i think im going to use buttons instead of ties for the closures, just to change things up a bit... i washed it last night in the washer on gentle because some great MDC mamas said it really helps peace fleece soften up and "bloom" and it really feels lush now...i didnt really love peace fleece when it came in the mail, but im really starting to see the beautiy in it!
im going to knit a matching peace fleece soaker today in pink and turquise stripes i think.. and here is a picture of the whole "new baby" outfit that i've made..

if this baby doesn't come soon its going to drown in my basket of hand knits.

Have your baby today, then he/she & I can share a birthday! :)

I'm so excited! I can't wait to see your birth announcement (whatever day it is) ;)

Beautiful knits mama! My daughter still wears the purple pilot hat that you knit for her. I think it's been a year or so since you made it. Hope your baby is born soon! :)
