{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. 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.

  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?
