In the mean time, I've been diligently looking at baby items to knit. We're expecting another grand baby in Jan.
Today my hubby & I went to Natural Stitches, a LYS not too far away from me. The store had a rack with several knitted baby sweaters hanging on it & I fell in love with a little green sweater called Maile. It's free on Ravelry. The sweater was done in a yarn called "Squish", so I couldn't wait to check it out.

As you can see I also bought a panda bear tape measure, because my youngest daughter loves all things Panda.
I also wanted to try some different stitch markers.
After the LYS, we had some lunch & then, we went to the Tuesday Morning store, because we had never been there before. It was a really nice discount store & believe it or not, they had an assortment of yarns and a few knitting needles. I picked a Deborah Norville Cir in Size 2 with a 47" long cable for when I get back into knitting socks. The regular price was $7.49. Tuesday Morning's price was $3.49, so I had to get it.
I can't wait to try out this Squish Yarn and I just love the color & the shape of the skein. It was a hank of yarn that the LYS wound into a ball for me. I'm so excited to try these needles & yarn.
Oh, just in case you're wondering, we don't know if the new grand baby is a boy or a girl yet, but I wanted to knit the Maile Baby Sweater in pink. Later, I'll look for a boy's sweater pattern.
