Another little set for the baby boy. The sweater is my favorite baby pattern to knit, so simple and so cute. It is from Debbie Bliss' Baby Knits. I've made these for pretty much all the little ones in my life.

The bounty of my small garden is a delight and curse at the same time. No where to cook with the kitchen completely demolished. Still I excitedly head out each morning to see what I'll find waiting for me, pattypan squash, tomatoes, bunches of basil, chard, kale, red peppers, and vines heavy with green beans. For a girl raised in red brick apartment in the city the joy of an outdoor space is most certainly not lost on me...

In a year and four months a whole lotta business can go down. For instance one can sell a condo, spend much too long sleeping on the floor of a month to month apartment, buy a house, get pregnant, have their workplace destroyed in a fire, rip out an entire kitchen down to the studs, and still find time for all the other stuff like family, friends, and creating. Yes, I am pregnant in case you missed that in my long list. Our baby boy is due in November and I have to say it is the best having a baby of my own to knit and sew for.

Here are the first things I made for him...
He might be a boy, but this momma-to-be isn't going to be hindered in my efforts to dress him up in handmade goodies. (seems like so much cute fabric, yarn, patterns are so girlie)

It's good to blog about it all. Sometimes I just forget.
