If you've known me for any amount of time you probably know that, as much as I love sock yarn, looking at sock patterns and even knitting them, I've never actually finished a second sock.*
Who knew that getting pregnant was all I had to do to cure myself of Second Sock Syndrome?
I really had no business taking photos of these today since it's so gloomy and rainy but I was too excited to wait!
These are the Garter Stripe Baby Socks knit in some Socks That Rock that my friend Bertha sent ages ago (I knew it would become socks eventually!).
I've also knitted a tiny, adorable cabled hat but it's a dark brown and really has no business being photographed today. It has a matching sweater that should be simple but I've been struggling with it so it's tucked away for a bit. I'm going to embroider an acorn on a newborn onesie and it, the sweater and the cap are going to be his coming home outfit (with a pair of trousers we've already bought, of course). I can't believe that, as of today, I'm 33 weeks and 3 days and he could arrive in about seven weeks!
We have a home visit with our midwife tomorrow to go over my birth plan and I've been putting off the housework all day so I should get to it. Knitting a tiny sock is so much more fun....
*In my defense, I only have about two inches left on the leg of the second of an actual pair of socks. Getting pregnant, loosing my knitting mojo and then finding that the only things I want to knit are baby things kind of got in the way!
