Photo from Chelsy’s baby shower in April.
In June, Eric and I will have our first niece or nephew <3. My brother and Chelsy are having a baby! The closer we get to the due date, the more excited I am to meet this new little person. (Eric is still getting used to the idea, I think). Of course, even though they will be a summer child, I had to knit a tiny sweater. Enter Baby Sophisticate.
I knit up the 6-12 month size in a soft, slubby cotton that will be perfect for the fall. We won’t be able to visit as much as I’d like so I’ll have to settle for lots of care packages and Skype dates – but this kid is already loved so much. (Much like its parents!)
*Nibling is the gender neutral version of niece/nephew. Plus it just sounds cute.
In December I handmade:
Four hats (three gifts, one for me!)
Two hats look like that ^
I completed my first stranded project!
The fourth hat is a secret until I mail it out!
Two pairs of fingerless mitts (gifts)
For my mum
One scarf (gift)
For my FiL
Two custom stationery sets (gifts)
Two art prints (gifts)
I think I did alright, eh? Plus January first and second I made another hat as a surprise for a relative. I can’t wait for her to get it!
