We found out last week that we are expecting a little boy.
The children are super excited and have be coming up with suggestions for names. I was a bit unsure if I should find out the sex or not ~ but I'm quite an impatient person and like to get on to things, so we decided to ask. I'm pleased we did ~ now I have a list of projects I want to make for him over the next few months.
Since he will be arriving for our winter, I've started with a small and easy knitting project. A little vintage pixie bonnet from Hadley Fierlinger's book "Vintage knits for modern babies". After this I might make the modern baby bonnet on page 44. It does seem strange knitting with wool on a super hot New Zealand summers day.
It's quite exciting, I've never had a winter baby before and the thought of snuggling up with a newborn, soup cooking on the stove top and the fire roaring is making my heart feel warm and full.
