Gifts!

It really is true that I rarely make anything for myself. A friend of mine just moved for the millionth time, and I thought she might like a little housewarming gift. She told me her favorite colors are brown and green. So here's what I came up with:
These little dishcloths did not want to be photographed! I tried outside, inside, flash on, and flash off. But they are done and going out today.

Next on the needles will be a soaker for Firecracker.
I hope it is enough yarn! I weighed it out, but it sure doesn't look like much. I have no idea what those rocks are doing on the deck ledge. I think they are some project of Mary's. I also made another diaper for Firecracker yesterday. I am still working on perfecting the design. I am not the world's best seamstress. But if they work, I'll be happy. It's so much cheaper than buying them (and THAT is so much cheaper than using disposables).

I'm off to the doctor this morning for a prenatal checkup. Same old stuff. I'm 29 weeks today. We need to name this kid! I wish I could just peek inside quickly and see if the baby is a boy or girl!
