Yarn Along: Baby Blue

by Josée

All the pink and purple baby clothes have been put away, including the cutest little pink Easter dress and purple romper I had knit. I’ve learned a little lesson: don’t guess the sex of my baby. I’ve guessed wrong the last two times. Little Teddy, being a boy, has a completely different wardrobe than the little girl I was convinced we were having. His clothes are more green, blue and covered in dinosaurs and pirates.

So I’ve started to knit him a Small Things Romper in Cascade 220 Superwash baby blue. No sooner did I begin knitting did I realize that a size three months won’t fit him long. There seems to be a trend among my boys to gain weight quickly.

As for reading, I recently picked up House at Riverton by Kate Morton and have making some progress in the last few days. I’ve also been reading the last five issues of Alphabet Glue from Bird and Little yBird. These e-magazines have great seasonal booklists and activities for children that enjoy books. I’ve already picked out an Easter project and made a list of books to pick up during our next visit to the library. Right now all five past issues of Alphabet Glue are discounted 25% until the end of this week.

He's such a cutie!! I can't wait to see him in the romper, knitted rompers are the cutest things *ever*.

I wanted to knit Alex a romper but Nathaniel talked me out of it. He's such a hot baby, I don't even put him in fleecy jammies, he just sweats too much.
