A Special Announcement…

I have a not-so-secret, secret to tell you! I’m beyond thrilled to tell you all that Matthew and I will be welcoming a baby next February! Have you noticed I’ve been a little baby crazy lately? It’s no coincidence. I’ve even named our baby — yep, you can call it “Mini Stanley” for now.

My first baby purchase was yarn which turned into this little snowsuit for my snow bunny to-be! I’ve been knitting up a storm and ogling baby patterns on Ravelry. I have big plans for all the projects I’ll be making over the next 6 months.

Warning: You might get sick baby project after baby project that I’ll be posting here…but if you do, I will have to declare you insane, because they’re so-stinkin-cute you can’t help but love them and squeel “awwww”!

Just a few in my queue:

Pattern links -  top to bottom, left to right
La brassière raglan
Baby Hunter Hat
Sweet Honey
Crocus Patch Baby Blanket
Baby Bunting Sweater
Hooded Cardigan
Baby Pea Pod
Epipa Baby Booties
Korrigan

Since you’re all a crafty bunch I thought you might enjoy this.  My friend Aly sent this to me soon after I shared my news with her.  Aly is pregnant too, due 6 weeks before me and I’m so grateful to have someone close to share this experience with!
