Turnpike Knitting

Our trip to Delaware gave me the opportunity to knit for about 7 hours! I finished Clark's scarf and one sock and made good progress on the second sock. I will try to block out this ribbed scarf. I was up in the air about that thinking that no matter what, it will just go back to it's original shape. I don't like it so thin though so I'm going to at least try.

As you can imagine, my thoughts right now are back to baby projects. Hard to imagine that I'm going to have a grandchild to knit for! I really do want to use up some of the yarn I have and complete some planned projects before I get into that though and I do have until May to make something nice for the baby. Actually, going into the summer, I have until next Fall to start knitting warm clothes for him or her. I'm thinking that a nice, lightweight cotton pinwheel blanket would be good to start. I've always wanted to do that pattern.

I gifted Trellis at my niece's baby shower on Saturday. She really liked it. I found a cute little outfit that went with it very nicely. Next on the baby agenda is a sweater for my nephew's baby due in January. It's a girl... I'm thinking pink! They already have a baby boy and I'm sure they will appreciate something girly this time around. Here's a cute photo of the two expectant moms.
Our family is having a true population explosion!
