Hello, Andrea here for once! I bet you thought I’d never post here again. Nah, I like to surprise people now and then by doing something out of character. Besides, I actually have a finished knitting project to share, so I couldn’t not post something! Here is my version of the Cub Cuddler (sorry, this is a Ravelry link but there isn’t really a dedicated non-Rav web page for the pattern). I modified it by tapering the ending of it more gradually and ending it in an icord that I tied in a knot. Just because I thought it would be cute.
It’s kind of a relief to have finished knitting something for the new baby. It just seemed wrong, somehow, to be having a baby and to not have anything knitted for him. But between work, and taking care of a two-year-old, and pregnancy tiredness, and trying to get ready for the baby… well, I haven’t had a lot of energy for knitting. Now I’m at 32 weeks, which means I have about two months left, give or take, and I’m starting to feel like things are a little more under control, thankfully.
So, if you’re looking for a good baby shower gift idea, I definitely recommend this pattern. It was very easy and quick, and the short row shaping made it interesting to knit. It’s probably not the most practical item ever, but I’m hoping it will make for some cute baby pictures! Baby pictures that I will definitely be posting here in a few months’ time.
