Two new projects

New projects? What am I, nuts?
Well, there's a baby shower coming up on April 14, and I decided that instead of the feather & fan baby blanket I've been making for friends & relatives since I was 18, I would make 2 little garments. The first one is the child's placket-neck pullover from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. I'm making it in the 6-12 mo size, from Pure Soysilk purchased last weekend in Providence. Last night, I got to the point of setting the body aside & starting the sleeves, and found out I don't have size 5 dpns! That will soon be corrected.
Fortunately, I did not need to get twitchy for lack of knitting (aside from all the WIPs around the house), since I had purchased 3 skeins of Rowan handknit cotton earlier in the day for the Mason Dixon heartbreakingly cute baby kimono. I'm passingly familiar with newborns, but haven't had one of my own, and I keep thinking, "This is just so small!" The gauge is correct, though, so hopefully they're just that small.

Interesting how both these colors coordinate with my office wallhanging.

Don't worry. It'll fit those babies are tiny.
