I had the bright idea of using my leftover yarn to make baby clothes. I'm never ready when I find out that a friend or colleague is preggers. Last year this time, I dropped my WIPs to knit baby gifts, now I've dropped everything again to knit for two pregnant co-workers. Turns out that very little that I have is suitable: it's handwash, machine-washable but not dryable, or scratchy wool, or I don't have enough of whatever is suitable.
So I bought some kid-friendly yarn to make baby clothes, but I also bought this from someone on Ravelry:
this, and maybe this. These little knitted jean jackets are so cute that it doesn't matter. I will give them to someone who doesn't mind handwashing. They'll be the first FOs for the "unknown baby boom," as Amanda put it!
