New Addition

I am excited to announce that I am going to have a new niece!!  WOOHOO!!!  My baby brother (well I guess not so baby anymore but just saying that to piss him off if he reads and my sister in law, Lisa, aka E-Si, are expecting their first baby in May.  I am so excited for them!!!  I see LOTS of PINK in the near future!!

So we were talking one day at dinner at my parents' house how I found that hats and mitts didn't fit my kids when they were first born.  The only one that I found didn't slide off their head was the hand-knit one from the hospital.  That conversation led me to my next project....please keep in mind that I can only knit in a straight line, so I'm an expert in scarves, scarves, and more scarves! lol.  I googled knitting patterns and found that I didn't understand anything...even the ones that said "beginners" and "easy" were beyond me since I didn't know what "purl" meant (I know now that it means to "knit backwards").  So I "winged" it and came up with my own's the end results.

I made the pink set first and literally knit in a straight line then stitched up the side and the top.  But when I got to the blue set I became a little adventurous and ended up tapering the top so that it closed on it's own.  I'm quite proud of myself!  Here are close up's of both sets.

I am going to try to make at least a few more sets before AJ gets here!
