Week 24 and still kicking!
Our little baby girl seems to like kicking around ALOT, especially when there are loud noises. Apparently babes en-utero can hear at this point.
I’ve had few complaints, other than the scorching heat over the past few weeks. Thankfully we have A/C but it is still fairly comical to see me in tank tops and shorts with every fan in the house on, while my husband is bundled up in sweats. I have this thing called “pregnancy congestion” which basically means I feel like I have a cold and my nose is stuffed up. Constantly. According to babycenter.com, this affects 20- 30% of pregnant women. Unfortunately there’s not a whole lot of immediate relief!
At 24 weeks, the uterus is about the size of a basketball, so I wasn’t able to get a clear picture as to whether my freshed seamed Paton’s V-Neck Sweater fits. Anyways, here she is in all her glory.
Yarn: Knitpicks Wool of the Andes in Sapphire
Needles: US size 7
It took me long enough, but I finished her amid record high temperatures, typically not your usual 100 % wool knitting time. The V-Neck looks kind of low, actually really really low, but I would never wear this Wool Of the Andes beauty without a full length shirt underneath- too itchy! I really like this Paton’s booklet because you have all the pattern pieces to create many different looks, a v-neck, crew neck, turtle neck, cowl neck… etc. etc.! I have been eyeing the Next Steps 3: Create your own Cardigan as well as the Snow Country booklet that includes these two numbers:
I’m not quite sure what’s up on the needles next, I do have the camisole that I’ve been working on, but I’m unhappy with the size and may need to start anew. I may start working on some baby items.
