This sort of feels like a confession, but I swear it's not that bad. I've been knitting hats and blankets. But (I swear) they are for other people's kids. I'm not
Mary's daughter got a purple plum hat (knitted from an apple hat pattern)...sorry the picture is blurry she wouldn't stop running around long enough for me to get a normal picture, but you get the point, she likes the hat. Now granted it's 107 degrees out daily, Mary keeps her house at a particularly cool temp-wise, so Junebug can wear it indoors now instead of waiting for the once yearly snow that we get.

Also, my receptionist's daughter just had her 3rd baby today and I knitted a simple-eyelet hat for her (see, I can play nice with the fertiles). I started knitting on her due date a week ago and gave it to my receptionist yesterday, perfect timing. Her daughter gave birth to a little girl named Chloe today at 10:15-7lbs, 12 oz, 19 inches long and perfectly healthy as far as I know. This is my last day traveling to this office so I probably won't get to see her, or get to see pictures, all the better though from my infertile standpoint. So here's a pic of the hat, it's on a decorative ball I have at home which I thought would be perfectly baby-head sized.

Side note: 2WW started today, maybe I'll start another knitting project, maybe a blanket with a matching hat this time. Or maybe a pirate's hat for Mary's son.
