I’ve finally managed to catch up with the baby knitting …
There’s a pair of Saartje’s Booties in need of buttons for a musical colleague’s new daughter, and a traditional Sweet Baby Cap for the second grandchild of my next-door-neighbors (the baby’s mother nearly delivered my own college-age son!). There’ s a knitted soccer ball in progress for the baby’s older brother.
In addition, I’ve finally sorting out four children’s hats knitted last spring and intended for the Dulaan Project, but which will be redirected to the R.S. Tikkun Knitters hamper (to encourage the group now that it’s up and running) for distribution to the local J.F.C.S. (photos here: 1, 2, 3; and the child’s version of an Elizabeth Zimmerman Snail Hat). I also managed to weave in the ends on the collection of infant slippers I’d made last spring (in a fit of slipper and booty fever).
Even with these done, there are still a pair of brimming UFO baskets that chill my heart whenever I enter my knitting corner of the kitchen.
