Work Mascot

I was checking rooms at work last night and found this little one patiently waiting for her babe to show. Sitting alone on the bed she was knitting a hand dyed hat for her baby to be. Funny that she didn't call out or let us know she was there.

In all seriousness this was made as a joke to hang out at the nurses' station with us. I have a request from one of our residents for her own office mascot.
Pattern: Womb from Knitty
Yarn: Lamb's Pride Bulky, pink
about 0.25 of a skein used.

I love this!

I have been making a sweater for myself also but it isn't too exciting to look at. Here's a preview.

Have a good rest of the weekend mine has been busy with work and a birthday party at the movies.

Spring has(Finally) Sprung

This little knit is for a baby of a coworker. Spring is definitely the time for new babies! We have bee fairly bursting with mom's and new babes at work. I had to nicely tell some mom's to clear out of their rooms as soon as possible the other day because we were out of labor rooms! I think the hat probably has too much pink for a boy hat though, that was the original intention. Oh well! I'll gift it to one of the other girls expecting at work and find some other yarn for the boy.

The family went for a hike in the local state park last Saturday while I was at work. It looks like fun and finally no snow!!

My living room looks like this right now, I have been sewing drapes for the basement and breakfast nook but it is turning into a bigger job than I bargained for. Hopefully I can get it done this weekend.

Of course I had to throw in a picture of the kids with the eggs they dyed. KD didn't want to be in this pic but Noley and Miss M were more than happy to oblige me.

I'll leave you with the kiddo's notes for E.B.
