My cousin's wife gave birth to baby boy triplets and I made them some umbilical cord hats (see post below) but the boys are preemies and it will be a long time till their little heads grow into them soooo...I knit some little preemie hats and booties. (The bootie pattern was supposed to be for preemies but they seem a little big.)
These were the first booties I have ever knit so it was fun to learn, and by the 6th one, I was whipping them out pretty fast. My first ever sock, however, is not going quite so fast. I just turned the heel, (the highlight of my otherwise dull week), whoo-hoo, and am working on the gusset right now.
(I feel like I'm the Fisher-Price of Knitting levels: "my first sock," "my first sweater," etc.)
Meanwhile, Chez Gato, we wonder if it will ever stop raining.
