You'd think that the last thing an infertile girl would want to do is knit baby clothes. But you would be wrong. At least in this case. Because, despite any other emotional baggage they might carry with them, baby clothes have one distinct advantage: they're small. I can actually finish them. This is a huge bonus point in my world, where I have been working on two sweaters for myself for the past, oh, two years, but where I have managed to complete a number of baby items in the meantime.
So my niece, the official Cutest Baby in the World, is turning one in a few weeks. And the world's cutest baby needs a cute sweater, no? Seems about right to me. Thus, in spite of my normal dislike of showing off (I can hear my mother's voice now: "It's rude!" Damn Scandinavians.), I think it's cute enough for a little show and tell.
Witness, my victorious and extra cute baby sweater:
On the not-so-good-news front, I think I might need a root canal. Which, to be erudite about it, sucks. Big time. I do however, promise not to create a show and tell opportunity out of that.
Now, I'm headed back to the Show and Tell class to see what other people have been up to. Go and check it out!
