I should be ashamed to tell you all that I have been cleaning out cupboards, drawers, under the bed chests, etc.and am continually surprised by what I have found that I haven't thought about in years. I have way too much stuff and am trying to sort out and get rid of a lot of it this summer. Some I have found homes for and lots of stuff will go to the Salvation Army. I just redecorated my family room and my sofa and love seat went to the SA. It was still in good condition but I was tired of it after all these years but someone will be happy to have it.
The title Baby Time is a drawer and box where I found a bunch of baby sweater sets that I had started years ago when my son and daughter were having their families. I made items for my son's son and daughter then there was a lull and my daughter started. I started knitting again and especially for a little girl. Well along came boy #1, boy#2 and finally - yes - boy #3. All the girl's sets were just put away some not finished and I was knitting mainly for little guys.
My son had another boy a few years later and that was it for them. Still not another girl- 5 boys and 1 girl we had.
I have been working on finishing the sets, adding ribbon to the bonnets, etc. I have taken pics of 2 I made. The pink set and the peach set were made by me. The little turquoise sweater was made by either my Mom or my MIL - I cannot remember who gave it to me. I have another set or two that need buttons and then I will be finished. I am giving them to my daughter as custodian for the next generation. Hopefully some little girls will come along.
The Special Olympics scarf program that I have knitted for the last few years had such an excess last year that they are suspending it for 2012 and using the scarfs they now have. I am going to buy some blue yarn and start a few baby sets for boys. They have some darling patterns out now for children so will add blue to the mix. Who knows if I will be around or still able to knit when the next group arrive. Our oldest is just 18 and in college and the youngest 2 are 9.
