Well, I am glad to say that I have gotten the bug for knitting again. It has been 3 months since the birth of my daughter and I am ready. While on maternity leave I have had ample time to browse some fine knitting blogs and it has lit the fire. Believe it or not, this is the first time that I have browsed through any sort have blog and I am amazed at what they have to offer. I can't believe that I am starting my own. I am no computer genius by any stretch, but my husband is and has agreed to help me with the blogging lingo.
So, I had made plenty of baby things prior to Caroline's arrival, but we didn't know that it was a she at that point and I have not had the opportunity to make anything specifically for her yet. First on the list was Baby Shrug shown in Debbie Bliss' Simply Baby. I decided to knit it for my friend Jenn who is due with her first baby girl in May. I just finished this last night. I started it on Saturday morning, so it knit up really fast. It was an easy knit, nothing much to it, but looks adorable when finished. I ended up using some Rowan Cashsoft Aran that I had stashed away and it is now on a favorites list of mine. I loved the feel of it and I know that Jenn's baby will too...it is soooo soft. I had Caroline try it on last night before her bath....it is a little big and Caroline is a little small.
