New project

Because of all the new hassles with our adoption (see my Dear Sam and Sophie blog here), I haven't had much time or energy to work on Sam's blanket. Plus I learned that my sister-in-law's due date is the beginning of December, not the end of December as someone had told me. So I started a baby sweater for her little girl today. It's the same sweater I've knit for two others, but in a nice soft white yarn.

Last night Ed and I went to a bbq at our friends Daniella and Jason's and we both got to hold and feed their 3-month-old, Max. He was so cute! Maybe it will feel better to focus on (and knit for) someone else's baby for awhile. I also have a baby shower next weekend, so I've got to finish up that teddy bear, which still needs stuffing.

Or maybe I need to stop knitting baby gifts and make something cool for myself. Any ideas?

As a non-knitter (but an admirer of those who knit) I don't have any ideas for a project, but I agree that you should definitely do something nice for yourself, whether it's knitting related or not! :-)

Your patience and generosity are so incredible admirable. You know that everything you do for others comes back to you tenfold! No doubt Your kids are gonna have a lot of blankets and sweaters! But yes, don't forget to take care of the most important person. How about a cashmere scarf?
