Since starting mat leave early, I have really sunk into this pregnancy comfortably. I've had the chance to really enjoy all the aspects of being pregnant without the worries and stresses of day to day life. I especially enjoy this time of year, everything about it, is so cozy and relaxing and to soon be able to enjoy it as a new family is really exciting.

About a month ago I went into the local wool shop and when i got to the counter the woman asked me if this new project was for me or baby. My answer was "me". I just hadn't gotten into knitting anything for baby yet, and wasn't sure if i would, but then someone sent me this link:

Since starting my first kimono, I've been hooked on knitting anything small! It's so quick and exciting to see how they'll look, that I just can't stop knitting these days. Here are a few projects that have transpired:

I was also asked to make a lion hat for a friend's son, and I wasn't sure how it would turn out, since I couldn't find a pattern anywhere on the web (which is where i get most of my patterns!) So this is what I came up with.

I think he's pretty cute and can't wait to see how he looks on!

Ashton loves his lion toque. He puts it on and then goes around the house on his hands and feet ( with his bum in the air)roaring like a lion. He tells me he is "Ashton Lion". Thanks again for making it, I really love the wool you used, it's super soft.
