The main reason I wanted to learn to knit? ONE OF MY BESTIES IS HAVING A BABY! She is still early on in the pregnancy and we are not sure of the sex (although she said, and I quote, 'I just feel like there is a penis growing inside of me.') so I went with gender neutral colors. I am a huge fan of gray and yellow together, but the yellow yarn they had at the craft store was not a pretty color. Instead I went with gray and a pretty green. I am using a basketweave stitch which you can learn how to do here. The gray will be in the center and the green on the outside. I am excited to see the finished product! It will take quite a while, I'm sure. It just has to be done by August when the little gummy bear joins us!
Another thing about this bestie having a baby thing - I cannot even describe how excited I am! I grew up with this girl and continue to be great friends with her and I think that adds to my excitement and joy for her. When she told me I literally screamed and teared up and everything. I can't wait!
