So I shall give you a bit of an update on what I've been up to recently project-wise.
I have almost finished my Rowan Cocoon Iceland sweater, all I need to do now is sew up the seams and knit the welt. Since this involve sewing, it will probably be a fair while before I actually get it finished.
I knit some Mrs Beeton wrist warmers for my mum for Christmas, which she loves. I knit them using Rowan Kid Classic and Rowan Kidsilk Aura. I missed out the beading, merely because I just couldn't be bothered.
I also knit some more Chevron Socks, this time for my dad. I think he liked them, my step-mother certainly did. I also knit some more Fetching using up some Debbie Bliss Donegal Aran Tweed that I had kicking about my stash, I think they looked very cute and they were well received.
I'm sure there's more Christmas knitting that I completed but I know I'm lacking some photos, like my mum's Fidget and the hat I knit for Mr H.
Speaking of Mr H, wish him luck as he started his new job today over in Lausanne. I think it's good timing as I feel I may start nesting any time soon.
I can't believe it's only 5 more weeks now until I'm a mummy, how crazy is that??! I'm not convinced I'm going to make it that far, I'm sure bubs is trying to make a break for freedom! My mum refuses to book her flight yet until she's convinced that I'm going to make it all the way. I shall have to wait and see what my obstetrician says when I see him for my final scan next week.
I can't believe how little baby knitting I've done. I managed to finish my Pinwheel blanket after being donated some yarn to finish the cast-off. I also knit a really cute sweater using Araucania Pomaire, copied from a sweater knit by Annelis.
I really want to knit some more blankets and some booties and sweaters and hats and rompers......... Oh, when will it all fit in?
And lo, such a thing exists
