The baby’s a-comin’

He wants out.  Now.  He is not due for another month.  This has been a rough pregnancy, I am extremely uncomfortable and I am not getting around well these days.  So who knows when he will show up.  Sooner rather than later, I hope though.

I have been continually working on Christmas gifts.  I have abandoned the gloves that I originally was making for my brother’s friend.  They were coming out too small, the yarn just wasn’t working for the project, and I just wasn’t feeling it.  I can’t give away something I have made that I don’t feel 110% proud of.  So I went to plan B, picked up some Cascade 150 in this gorgeous red color (which was his friends first choice anyways), and am making the Lace Panel Gloves from the Vogue Knitting Fall 2009 issue.  I am almost done with the thumb increases and ready to start on the fingers.  This project is giving me much more of the warm and fuzzies.  It is the first time I have knit with this yarn and I ADORE it.  Great stitch definition, not splitty at all, and it just knits up so nicely.  I am excited to try it on another project one of these days when I’m not broke!

I still have to finish the sweater for Marie’s twin #2, and I am making a last minute hat for my son per his request that knits up on US 7’s, so it should be a fast project.  It’s the Batman Hat, and I just went and bought some acrylic for it.  He has several wool hats that I have made him, and I think that this hat is going to be more used to run around the house wearing his ‘Thing’ hands, a scythe, and an Iron Man costume.  Yes, you read right.  His outfit combos CRACK ME UP.

So I have just been knitting away, trying to stay off my feet, and ignore the contractions as much as I can.  That’s about where I am right now!

She’s back…dun dun dun!!!!!!

I can’t believe that it has been 6 months since I have posted to this blog.  I completely suck.  I am not working, having to stay off my feet a lot more these days, so it’s perfect timing, right?

So what is new?  Nobody reads, and nobody knows me, but I will never get anywhere if I don’t start somewhere, right?

For starters, I am 19 weeks pregnant.  I just found out yesterday that I am having a boy.  I thought for SURE I would be having a girl…I have been planning all these cute knitted dresses and sweaters.  Well, let’s hope friends start having some girls so I can get THAT out of my system! lol

But there are still plenty of cute things to knit.  I have made some baby hats, a pair of socks, and am working on a little shell and a baby blanket.  Now that I know the sex of the wee one, I can really start moving on the baby knits!

In other news my BABY starts kindergarten this year.  Next week to be exact.  I can’t believe it.  I remember when he started walking at 9 months I jokingly said ‘Next thing you know he’ll be starting Kindergarten!’…well, it is next thing I know and he IS starting.  I can’t believe it.  The days will be quiet without him here.  Easier too though, because I really have had a rough time lately with this pregnancy.  Me not having to chase after a 5 year old and run around outside with him will really do me worlds of good I do think.

I am going to get pics taken of all of my FO’s from the last few months and get all the info together for them.  I really should use Ravelry’s project thingy a little more faithfully, would make my life a lot easier.  I will be posting very soon with those, and keep this blog going.  I really love doing it, it’s just a matter of sitting down and typing the posts out!

Til next time, take care!
