I am going to be a grandma!
So I am digging out all the pattern books and trying to find just the most darling patterns for this January baby. DD came home this weekend to announce that she is 12 weeks pregnant. The little dickens had me worried that it just was not happening.
This is the first grandchild on both sides. We won't know if it is a boy or girl for 6 more weeks, so I am starting with a white afghan that I will trim later. Then I will make something in mint. DD always loved baby mint. I love palest yellow, so that color will be next. I am making a thick blanket now. But I will try a sport yarn teddy bear blanket in mint next. Then gotta find something to make in the yellow. By then we ought to know if I need to buy blue or pink yarn. What fun!
We spent the whole weekend buying her maternity wardrobe with the ease of suburban shopping and mom's car. A friend here gave her a sack full of maternity pants and shorts (that she had been given second hand but could not fit into). They fit DD just right. I think she will need some more things come the 8th month as everything looks rather small. But since she needed long sleeves, everything she bought down here in the warm summer climate was on sale racks and marked way down. We do love the sales!
