Since I found out I was pregnant I have been in two minds as to what I would make/knit for the baby, if in fact anything. The reason behind me thinking I might not make anything is because I didn't make anything for Angus when I was pregnant with him. I also somehow managed to attach some feelings of guilt onto this, feeling that it wasn't fair to Angus. However, now that my morning sickness has gone and a new year has started I feel I really should make something for our new arrival. Also my husband told me I was being silly, he was right. I make things for Angus all the time so I don't feel guilty about making this baby some things.
So, what am I making... some of you may remember from when I was pregnant with Angus I started a baby blanket. There were a couple of problems with the blanket and it was never finished. I decided a couple of weeks ago that I would rip it out and start again. It's going much better than last time even with the small issue I had last week. I am now further with the blanket than I ever got when I was making it before and I am still feeling good about it and not bored. I mention the bored part as it's just plain garter stitch but at the moment that's about all my brain can handle!
This is what it currently looks like
I have done 2 of the 5 stripes so making good progress.
