    I`m currently knitting my boy a blanket. This is my first go at knitting! It`s not completed yet due to no more yarn. Have to go out this weekend and get some more.

    Thanks ladies. Honestly they are made of wood letters from walmart, paint and ribbon from a dollar store. With Ava's I was in a bit of a rush as I did them right at the end of my pregnancy so im not 100% thrilled with how they turned out but this time im going to start a bit earlier.

    I too am knitting a blanket. It's not even a quarter of the way done, but since I still have just over 18.5weeks to go im sure I'll be able to finish it by then!

    Ladies, the things you have made or have had made for you are beautiful! We seem to have some seriously artistic ladies on BnB!!

    These are little burp cloths I made. The backing is just a washcloth I found on clearance.

    Here are the things I have made:

    'Baby' bunting- will end up on the nursery wall somewhere, just haven't decided where

    Doorstop
    https://i415.photobucket.com/albums/pp237/jess_tang/06.jpg

    A little teddy to co-ordinate with the rest of her bedding:

    Printed out co-ordinating letters by scanning the wallpaper borders and pulling out the characters on photoshop:

    Nappy and laundry buckets:

    We're making more stuff but haven't had time yet. Will probably go nuts and makes loads during my maternity leave. I wish I had the patience to knit a blanket
