I don't know if it is some subconscious thing that is attacking me - now that I am going to be a gradma and all. (Technically I AM a grandma already - that little one growing in my daughter's womb IS already my grandchild. I just haven't seen him or her yet :)). Anyhow, I digress. The point is that ever since I found out my little grandbaby is on it's way - I have had an unquenchable disire to be knitting. Now some of this I blame on Becky at The Butler's Wife because she got me knitting dishcloths. And some of this I blame on Sarah of In The Midst of It because she was knitting the cutest baby things and she doesn't know it but she talked me into buying Itty Bitty Hats and now I want to knit every single one. Some of it may be that I am just so busy sewing and cross-stitching Christmas projects that I don't have time to knit yet and I always want to do what I can't be doing - isn't that just human nature?
Today I was surfing through Bloggyville and I found a very fun blog called Getting Stitched on the Farm. This is a fun place. Kristin is an accomplished knitter and author. I haven't bought one of her books yet, but her newest one, Kristin Knits, is on my list. Hear that family? It's on my LIST. Good.
She is also hosting a fabulous yarn give-away. I entered because I could really use some yarn. Because I am having a grandbaby you know. And my grandbaby will be expecting his/her grandmother to be knitting lots of warm and cozy little things. I just know that.
