babies, babies everywhere

I’ve got at least 3 babies to knit for in the coming months. My boss, who’s having her first kiddo, is beyond excited, and is due in April. I was thinking of making a baby blanket for this one.

I recently read The Golden Ratio, which is all about phi, or 1.61803399 . . . It’s a number very closely tied to the Fibonacci sequence (you know, 1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 . . .) And in the book there’s an image of a Fibonacci rectangle—which could be used to make the Fibonacci spiral, which is also a golden section. (Confusing, I know, but look:)

what’s next?

I have no idea.

I don’t know that I’ve ever really had a big knitting block before. Usually I start planning my next project while I’m still halfway through the current one. Maybe it’s because of the blog, but I feel this urge to be more systematic about my approach. Perhaps it’s that now that I’ve discovered the whole world of knit bloggers and online resources, I’m overwhelmed with possibilities.

fall projects

While I continue to work away on the baby bootees, and the finishing of the baby cardigan still awaits, I’m trying to think about what I’m going to want to knit next.

And nothing is coming to me. I’m blank.

next project

While my momentum is actually here, I am thinking about my next project. Knitty’s all-men issue has an awesome pair of mittens–the manly mitts. I’m no stranger to stranded knitting (someday I’ll post the photo of the Christmas stocking I made last winter), and I’ve been wanting new mittens. I still really like my double-thick mittens, but they are falling apart, and I’d like to try making a new type, anyway. (New challenges and all that.)
