Well I now have my computer back up and running! Tech support (aka the husband) says that he doesn’t know what I do to my computers, but it needs to stop. I say I’m not doing anything out of the ordinary, but he doesn’t believe me. I have been through at least 3 wireless thing-a-ma-bobs that connect me to the internet, but who is counting?!
I will be telling you big things that I have done over the next few days, but first the random, somewhat small, details!
There has been knitting, in fact I have actually finished something!
Tada! My first BSJ! (I say first because I am sure I will want to make more at some point). The pattern was simple to follow with the help of a cheat-sheet from a fellow knitter, but the jacket is pretty intuitive in folding once you bind off. It wants to fold itself, or so it seemed to me. The biggest problem with this was finding buttons from my crafting supplies that I liked and had enough of for the sweater. Here are some variations I passed up. (The color of the yarn is much more accurate in these pictures)
I also had Davis model it for size comparison.
It is made from Trekking Pro Natura, and I think it will fit a newborn, maybe up to 3 mo. The yarn is a combo of bamboo and wool, so it won’t be too hot during the summer months.
All of my other knitting is pretty boring at this point. Not much progress on any one thing.
My belly has been growing. It is interesting to see by how much since the last month’s photos. You don’t truly appreciate the change in your girth when you live with it day-to-day! (or when you can only see it from the top most of the time!) Baby moves around frequently now, and is reaching more areas with tiny hands and feet that can be sensitive!
I signed up for a class to learn to spin on a wheel later this summer, I have read a bunch of books, I dried some bananas that were on sale for 25 cents a lb, and I have started working on the sewing for the baby’s room. Not so much to show here, but I will share the final results when I get there!
As for the rest, I guess I will have to update you later! I’m going to go read the rest of the 300+ blog posts I missed over the last bit of time!
