Crotchfruit Knitting

Happy Spring!

Wow, why is everyone I know suddenly pregnant? Holy crap.  I'm not a huge fan of children, myself (I babysat once in my entire youth, and it was a horrible experience which I hope never to repeat), but hey, if people want the little critters, then more power to 'em!

While I don't exactly want to hold a child, I will knit for it willingly!

Behold, various knitting projects for Friends Bearing Crotchfruit!

Exhibit A: Radiating Star blanket.  I'm over halfway done, but because it's a round thing, every other round grows by many stitches.  Luckily, the pattern is pretty easy to memorize & knit in front of the TV.  I have 3 "Fullmetal Alchemist" DVD's to work my way through, thanks to Netflix.



Exhibit B: Strawberry hat.  This is for my friend who will be popping that kiddo out in the next week or so, with any luck.  A note about the pattern - I followed the "bobble" instructions given, and really if I knit this again, I would do at least two of the "k,p into the same stitch" moves to make the bobble more noticeable.


****

The Moral?  Want something knit for your impending child, and aren't in a hurry? I can probably accomodate you. :)

I loved the green blanket, and hope the parents get a photo of the child wrapped in it like a cabbage.

I hope you don't mind that I included y'all in my list of seven blogs deserving the "Creative Writer" Blogger Award; I hope it may draw to you a few new readers!

Hunh, that link didn't work; let me try again: CWBA.

We won't been needing any crotchfruitknittery but really enjoy seeing anklebiters outfitted gloriously! What a fun and useful thing it must be to knit.
