A few weeks ago, I got an email from my friends, The Ms, announcing that they are expecting their first baby...and it's a boy. Yay!! I love announcements like that even though babies scare the bejeezus out of me. I love babies and think they are totally cute...when they are quiet and clean. But that's besides the point. Yay...The Ms are having a baby and when I get this type of announcement, the knitting needles must come out! So I got to making one of my little infamous umbrella trim baby hats. I had hoped to give it to them personally when I saw them a couple of weeks ago but seeing I had just started the hat the night before, I just couldn't meet that self-imposed deadline. I whipped it up soon after and sent this to them in the mail.
I received an email from Mr. M saying that they received the hat and that they really liked it. Oh, that made me really happy. Mrs. M thinks the hat was very cute but I think the size of the hat was an eye-opening reality check for Mr. M. I hope it didn't scare him too much. A baby hat or as he called it, "little hat" is pretty darn small.
Since The Ms don't live that far, I may have to make Baby M my guinea pig for baby knitting patterns. I like making baby things but since I don't have a baby, I'm not sure how accurate these patterns translate to the average baby. Maybe Baby M can be my baby model!
Congratulations to The Ms. May November bring them much joy.
