I'm going to be an Aunt for the first time in December.  I am so excited.  Soldier's brother's and his lovely wife are expecting a little girl!

So what is a first time prospective Aunt to do?  Knit of course.

Pattern:  Bloom by Georgie Hallam
Yarn:  Cleckheaton Merino Bambino 4ply in red
Needles:  2.75mm and 3.5mm Knitpicks Options interchangeable circulars

Because the pattern is called Bloom, I needed some flowery accents.  I knitted an i-cord and attached this leaf pattern to either end,

and added a brooch with this flower.

We saw the almost parents yesterday at a little family gathering and they loved it!  Now I know they are receptive to handknits there will be a lot of little girl patterns on my needles in the future.

So it's October already!  This month is going to be a busy one.  It is Rhianna's and my little sister's birthdays, I am attending a baby shower tomorrow, and Soldier starts instructing on a new course so I will be flying solo with the smalls for most of the month.

As if I didn't already have enough on my plate, I have signed on to knit a pair of mystery socks for Socktober.  Kirsten at Through the Loops has designed a sock, and is releasing five clues throughout the month.  I got the first clue yesterday and today I have two finished cuffs.

I am using some Knitabulous Soft sock and I think the colourway is called Little Boy Blue.
