A bit of baby knitting

Yesterday I ran, well, walked errands all over town. We live in a small town and there are sidewalks, so whenever possible I walk to wherever I have business.

I walked to city hall and paid our water bill and our gas bill. I walked to the library with Marley and Sam and we checked out books. I walked to the grocery store and bought a gallon of milk and some fruit. I walked to the post office to mail a package to Glenn and Amy and the girls.

The package was filled with knitting for Madyson who is now five weeks old.

I knitted her these cute duck feet booties from Zoe Mellor's book, 50 baby bootees to knit.

I also sent along these herringbone booties that I knitted (pattern from the same book):

Joan knitted the striped baby blanket for Madyson, and the baby bib for Abbey. (The bib pattern came from Mason-Dixon Knitting). Jacy knitted the purple blanket as a carseat blanket for Madyson.

(I bought the embroidered burp cloth at a little store in town.)

They should get the package by Monday. I hope they enjoy the items as much as we enjoy knitting for them!

Those are so cute! What a fun package! I am very impressed.

I first learned to knit when I was five years old. Unfortunately my skills have not really improved since then, and I am stuck knitting plain scarves and dishcloths. I keep telling myself that someday I will learn to really knit.

Hey! Plain scarves and dishclothes *are* really knitting! That bib and both baby blankets are all garter stitch, because that's what Jacy and Joan know how to do. Have you ever seen Sally Melville's book, The Knit Stitch? I learned to knit 4 1/2 years ago and I loved that book because it encouraged me to believe that I could do a lot with my meager skills.

I've never seen that book, but now I'll have to look for it. :-)
