{31 Days} Preparing for Baby # 3 - Knitting

Welcome to my {31 Days} series this year!  We will soon be welcoming baby # 3 and I realized that there is a lot I need to do before that happens!  You can find all the posts in this series here.  Thank you for following along with me.

The weather has taken a turn for the cold I believe...and unfortunately I don't think we will be back to the 70's until next spring.  This means it is time to start knitting mittens!

A couple years ago, I came across this pattern in the Taproot magazine, and I love it!  It is incredibly easy, which is important to this slow knitter, and it comes in multiple sizes so I can make them for my whole family.

First up will be little mitts for the littlest among us.  I had this organic cotton in my stash and decided it would be perfect, soft and warm for my little one.

As far as reading goes - nothing, I am reading nothing at the moment.  But, I am doing a lot of staring, and that should count for something!

What are you working on this week?

Linking up with Ginny and Nicole


  1. How fun to knit for the whole family.

  2. MItts for everyone - what a great idea!! I think that yarn will be perfect for the baby.

  3. The yarn is beautiful perfect for a new addition. Its lovely to find a pattern that you can use for the whole family.

  4. I hear good things about taproot. Can it be bought in the stores or only online?

    1. I absolutely love Taproot Magazine, there are always a ton of great articles and projects in its pages. You can find out if it is sold near you here http://www.taprootmag.com/pages/in-stores And it can also be bought online.

  5. I just wanted to say that when you have a baby nearly with you: Staring counts! You made me laugh out loud. Now my 11 year old thinks I'm nuts.

  6. Haha!! Staring!! I love it! Pregnancy is the one time in life you can sit and stare and still say you are working on something!! Darling mittens pattern, the more I see of Taproot the more I am longing for it.

  7. We are preparing for baby number three too! I just finished knitting a little hat for him. Lovely yarn, sounds perfect for a new baby!

  8. Great looking mittens. I love the yarn you have chosen.

  9. Visiting from Ginny's blog today. :) Such a cute mitten pattern! Best wishes as you prepare for your sweet Little One!

  10. Oh I hope to try that pattern soon too - and how wonderful about #3!

  11. Oh I love that pattern - I am actually using a very similar one to make mittens for myself right now - but it does not come in baby sizes :( ... Which Taproot is this?
