Whoa! I’ve been missing for a few weeks. All is well, just busy with a million things and a little bit of lost knitting mojo. Pregnancy is on week 36 and counting…. my word am I ready to have this baby!!!
Can you believe it is October 1st??? I surely can’t, especially since the baby is due October 30th! Also, today marks the beginning of Socktoberfest. What do you have planned?
I received this lovely skein of Merino sock yarn from SP10 and I have been eyeing it for the Monkey socks that everyone has gone bananas over. I just love those Seabreeze colors!
I also have some left over yarn from my Dublin Bay Socks that I’d like to make into baby socks.
Last year I started but didn’t finish a pair of socks for Socktoberfest and was quite disappointed. I’d like to chill a little on the “need to finish”, especially since I have a few other items in queue that are of time sensitive nature- like I need to knit another baby hat for my baby and some kind of booties for her too! I sure love watching the Socktoberfest Flickr group and watching OTHER people finish socks after socks. It’s like living vicariously through others’ knitting.
I am still working on my Patons Cardigan, making steady progress, and I am now on sleeve island. I had hoped to wear this home from the hospital, but it’s getting down to the wire. I suppose the stockinette would be fairly easy early labor knitting, right? Or am I crazy to think that I could knit during labor? If the early contractions are far enough apart at first… at least I would feel like I’m doing something!!!!
Enjoy the first day of Socktober!
