I'm an auntie....again!

My sister had a little boy this morning (by emergency caesarian section poor thing). Mother and baby are apparently doing well. So now I have to start my next project!

I'm going to do a baby blanket but was waiting to see what variety of baby arrived. I have some pinky-lilac blanketing, but that's not much good for a boy, so it's a trip to my LNS this week to get a more neutral colour or a blue if they have it. I dug out my copies of Inspirations magazine for inspiration (!), and the winner is this one - Midnight Feast. I'll post a clearer picture with the materials when I get them.

I'd forgotten how lovely some of the projects are in these magazines. I haven't been getting them for a while as I have so many (that pile you can see is a LOT deeper than it looks). But I really do want to do that bag you can see on the cover to the right. And a few other things too. There's just not enough time!

By the way, this is the tenth time I've been made an auntie, although it's my sister's first, so I'm not that excited. Just happy she and baby are OK.
