A vast amount of yarn...

With my surge of recent nesting has come (as I expected) the sudden and uncontrollable urge to knit and crochet baby hats and blankets in quantities suitable to clothe the entire free world. Every evening for the past 2 weeks I've been feverishly knitting pink and blue hats. Does the fact that the baby will be born at the end of May give me any pause? Absolutely none. S/he NEEDS A HAT. And since I don't know if the baby is a boy or a girl, I'm making them in multiple colors. I want him or her to come home from the hospital in a hand knit hat. :)

As well, despite the fact that I have two storage containers full of yarn stashed away, I am convinced that I need to buy baby yarn in order to make a fluffy, soft blanket. THE BABY NEEDS THIS BLANKET. It's like a force totally outside of my control is compelling me to make these objects.

Early in my pregnancy, I could not knit or crochet. It literally made me nauseous. I've got all kinds of yarn now stored away that was originally intended to craft Christmas gifts. There's always next year... But at any rate, my crafting mojo is back, big time. I'm bound for AC Moore after work today to pick up some Red Heart Baby Clouds. We may be snowed in tomorrow, and if so, I want to have something to work on. :)


  1. Haha! You sound like me, only I can't crochet, I sew!

    I love that you're making hats! I wish I knew how to crochet to make hats. Instead I have to buy them :/ I love me some hats!

  2. I was the same way before we had our daughter, only she was adopted so I did not have anytime to knit for her until we found out about her the day she was due. I managed to make a hat and gloves in 10 days :). The blanket came later.
