Must. Knit. Faster.

So many babies arriving and so fast! A friend has just texted to say she's gone into labour, another mate has dropped her sprog 2 days ago and a member of the Badger tribe has also just produced a baby badger boy (we badger's are a large and fecund tribe, so there will be even more coming soon). I've knitted plenty for the friend's baby but I'm feeling the urge to make more now that the little lady is actually on her way. The second friend's baby has also received knitterly goodies, but she's so dinky small I want to make something teeny tiny for her that will actually fit now. And the latest joinee to the tribe (currently known as James Patrick, but this may change apparently) needs a knitted token of love from his Aunty Badger. So no time to do a proper post as I need to get back to the booties, the hat, the all in one bear suit and the socks. I love babies!

I know that feeling, it was crazy around here in July. I think there's something on the water.

Baby knitting is so addictive. I can't wait to see what you've made.

I'm so jealous! I don't have any babies to knit for. I'm sure that will change in a couple of years though... The all in one bear suit sounds so cute.
