Yes, it is June and I am posting my first and second finished knitting projects of the year. It took me 6 months to finish a single thing. This:
It's small. Smaller than a baby blanket should be. But I just got to the point where I was done with diamonds and needed to give this to the mom-to-be. She's due in two weeks. So here is a case where it is the thought that counts.
However, I made up for the small blanket. This is possibly the cutest thing I've ever knit, and all for baby Seb (he will be Sebastian Mateo). Immediately following the blanket, in less than a day, I whipped this up:
It's called the umbilical hat. And it was a crowd pleaser - the yarn was right (soft and machine washable) and it was itty bitty. Maybe not so practical for a july baby...but that's beside the point. More to come, much more quickly now that I don't have a baby blanket hanging over me.
