My sister Erin is having a baby and I wanted to do something to mark the occasion. I received this nice - amazingly soft - yarn from Ashe for my birthday. I couldn't for the life of me think of something I could make for myself with this green color though. I'm rarely a green kind of person. So I thought and thought then remembered that my sister was like popping out a baby at that very moment and started a'knittin'.
I came up with a baby blanket and a little pushy kitty cat. The blanket has a hood for the baby's head, which I think is so cute, and the plushy has no arms or legs to get in the way of massive cuddles! Here's Meow checking out the new kitty (if you're very observant she's actually in every picture so far ^_^). She was mildly suspicious:
I also knit a hat for an old Professor of mine and when taking a picture of it I realized my life in a nutshell was shown in the picture with me.
