As many of my friends know, I've not knitted (much) for the past 7 months. Recently, I found myself pondering baby socks - why is it that they can never stay on my baby's foot for more than 5 minutes before she yanks / chews them off? Then it occurred to me that I can knit bootees that will stay on her feet and still keep her toes warm in air conditioned malls. So I started looking for patterns - and that's when it hit me. The pattern sizes indicate '0-3months', '3-6months', 6-9months' and '9-12months'. Without realising it, my baby had already graduated to the 2nd largest category! And I have not knitted her ANYTHING at all since she was born. Horrors. And I call myself a knitter!
So here's a bootee that I knitted for her - it took 2 weeks - 1 week to look for a pattern, 2 days to locate the yarn for it, 1 day to locate the needle, 2 days to locate my knitting bag, and 2 days to cast on (cos she thought it was a new game and kept pulling the yarn).
And while I'm at it, here are some pics of my baby wearing stuff that I knitted for her, for public record, so that she can't call me a lousy mom in future.
P.S. Thanks my dear knitting buddies for sending me knitting news and yarn, and generally keeping me sane during these months :)
