The Knitting Frenzy Continues...

Two more quickie projects:

First, I just got an email from one of my college students - she recently delivered a 10-lb baby boy! Ouch!! He is quite the cutie and I am absolutely thrilled for her. I wanted to make her a little something and thought these might come in handy:

Because, as we know, spit happens. Burp cloth is monogrammed because I figure if you have to drool, you might as well do it in style. (details/specs on ravelry.)

Note: I am digging the periwinkle and must make something else in this color soon.

Second, a basic shawl/throw/lapghan for my mom's cousin. She is in an assisted living facility and is beginning to fade, and I wanted to make her something soft and cozy.

I hope it gives her a little comfort.

Actually, there was a third thing too - I knit a second teeny tiny mitten to complete a pair for my SIL. I attached them to a teeny tiny piece of wire with teeny tiny wood clothespins. Unbearable cuteness ensued, but you'll have to take my word for it as I forgot to take a picture ;)

My procedure is at 12 pm tomorrow - wish me luck!

Lovely stuff, lady!! Can't wait to see the mini mittens (if you ever get a pic of them), I'm a sucker for mini things.

Thinking good thoughts for you.
