It’s true- I’ve been working on a 40-week WIP! We’re having a baby!
The next question I get is- so do you know what it is?
To which I usually reply, “DUH, a BABY.”
“No, I mean a boy or a girl.:
“Oh yeah, um… not yet.”
So one cannot find out the gender of the baby until reaching 20 weeks or something like that- so with me at 10-11 weeks… I’ve got a way to go! Part of me wants to be surprised the day the baby is born. Then another part of me wants to know- like maybe it will feel more real that we are having a baby! Plus then I could knit the appropriate colored throws, booties, hats, etc. I am ITCHING to knit baby stuff. I actually started knitting this cute matinee coat for a friend’s baby, but the baby outgrew it before I finished. I guess I could knit that up on vacation- and if we’re not having a girl then at least one out of my three pregnant friends is, right?
Finally- the lace shawl is blocking. I beat Lynne . She thinks it’s because I’m not working right now. I think it’s because I have been nauseous on the couch every night knitting this week! It’s amazing to think that this lace shawl has been sitting in my WIP pile since February 2006. Funny how we get distracted from one project and jump to another, and another, and another. Non-knitters definitely don’t understand that one.
Now- what project to pick up next???? I have a skein of this gorgeous Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sport (from a swap)… that I would love to do something with. Any suggestions for a skein of sport? I think I would even buy another skein to do some socks…. just need a pattern.
