Whine much?

OK - before I start... I just need to whine for a minute...

This weeks' lovenox shots are killing me. It seems like I've forgoten how to insert the needle without searing pain and then when I do finally inject the miserable stuff (don't get me wrong... I do love it, well, at least the idea of what it is allowing to happen) and pull out the needle I bleed all over the place for a few minutes. So I've started putting a little bandaid on the spot to keep it from getting all over my clothes. Yesterday, I peeled of the morning band aid and all the skin came off with it. OMG! It is the most irritatingly painful injury I've had in a while. T put another bigger band aid on the area to protect it - but that almost hurts worse! (Sorry... sometimes I just need a little sympathy!)

On to the real question of the day... What should I knit? I've been working on little hats and blankets for the hospital where my MIL works off and on this summer, but now I want to make something for Big Boy. I've pretty much decided the last blanket I made wa going to be for him but I want to make something else that was his from the very beginning. I've got a couple of options - take a look and tell me what you think....

1. There is the very practical button up bunting sack and another version...that I really love.

2. There is the adorable pants and sweater set - that might just drive me crazy to work on but I really love the striped pants in this set...

3. There is another practical but still very cute one piece outfit.... (I see this as a "snowsuit" kind of thing to be used as an outer layer over clothes)

4. Any other ideas????

I promise I'll post some hat pictures. Some are boring but lately I've tried a few stitch and color details that I think turned out kind of cute.

I'm sorry the shots have sucked recently! That blows! And the recent bandaid fiasco! OUCH!!!

My MIL made an adorable bag. It's draw string and then she lined it with waterproof stuff. It's hanging in the nursery right now, but I look forward to using it (although not sure what for yet!)

Yeah, the bandaids? Don't use them! I tried that for a few days before I figured out never to use them again. I think the tissue is so damaged from the shots, that the extra adhering of the bandaids is a bad combo. If you take the alcohol swab that you prep with and then rub it immediately afterwards, it helps a little with the bleeding. I'd also fold over a couple squares of toilet paper and tuck it into my waistband or whatever for a few minutes. Hang in there, D!

Those outfits are so adorable.
If you ever start selling them let me know. I made little baby sweaters when I was in HS. Haven't knitted since. I just love talented people. You go girl!
