Countdown: 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, TWO!

Two weeks left until my due date?! I can hardly believe it.
Our hospital bags are packed, and waiting by the door.
They're watching us.
They are waiting rather impatiently. (By the way, I realize that I never blogged about the Weekender Bag that I made in December 2006. Oops!).

I finished my diaper bag, just under the wire :)
Diaper bag with scowl
(Pardon the scowl, but this is the best shot out of many pictures). As I mentioned in my previous post, this bag is a variation on the Everything Bag by Amy Butler. It's slightly smaller than the original pattern, and I added a zipper at the top. I've had this japanese fabric in my stash for a while, and love the fake french. It's the french equivalent of engrish.

And I did indeed finish the smaller-sized Baby Garter Kimono.
Baby kimono and a blanket
And now I'm thinking that it might be too small. I guess I'll have to bring both to the birthing center and see which one fits...
Oh, and I snuck in a baby blanket! Can you believe I didn't have a hand-knit baby blanket?! I've had a few balls of Rowan Cotton Tape hanging out in my stash for a few years now, and I married them to the Garter Chevron pattern (February 26th in the knitting stitch calendar). I swatched with one whole ball, calculated the area (in square inches) I could get out of that one ball, then figured out how many stitches I needed to cast on to make a square blanket. Thankfully, on size 10.5 needles, it only took 3-4 days!
