I hope the doctor was right...

...and my cousin really is going to have a girl in the next couple of weeks.

I have never knitted any baby stuff before. It's fun, so I'm glad there are some babies that can put it to use. It also also opened my eyes to a new way to use some lovely yarns I have limited amounts of. The Classic Elite Premiere was another gift from my secret pal. It is the softest, loveliest cotton I've ever used. The skein is 108 yards and I made all of this with a good handful left over, probably enough to make another bootee or two. Also, in real life the flower buttons match the purple ribbon exactly. I'm really curious to try some EZ baby goods next, but before I tackle that, I'm ready for some grown up knitting. Maybe my first real sweater, perhaps?

PS -the straps are modified because I put them on backwards while watching "Hot Fuzz" and was too lazy to fix them.
