Crafting for the Baby

I started writing about this picture when I had a sense of déjà vu. It occurred to me that I had posted about this on the Adgitize forum thread about crafts. Since, I'm feeling rather lazy, I'll just copy and paste what I said there, hee.

Hopefully, when the first trimester is done, I can start making things for the new baby. I'll probably start with little booties and hats. I think I can also finish a couple of baby blankets, plus a baby cocoon. Of course, I have to sew a couple of hotslings (my preferred babywearing article) for myself and another one for my husband. I also want to work on a couple of things for Marguerite, maybe a couple of things that say she's a big sister or going to be one...
Well, the first trimester is over and so far, I've made a pair of mittens (taking me practically a whole week to finish when it would have ordinarily taken but a few hours) and one bootie so far. And I have grand ambitions of making stuff for pregnant friends and relatives as well (there seems to be a good number of us)... Right now, I'm doing things in yellow. I'm just going to add edging later on when I know what the gender of the baby is. I'm going with the conventional pink for girls and blue for boys. I normally would dress a person in any color whatever the gender, but it's irritating (when you're hormonal) when somebody thinks your baby girl is a boy...

You're getting there. But the picture inspires inappropriate jokes... sorry... I must be in a different mood

Oh gosh, what jokes? They're beyond me at the moment, but they'll probably register later.
