Some new things...

Every time lately that I've been posting it's been at least a month or more, but at least now I can share with you all where my knitting/blogging mojo has gone...



...into growing a baby!

I still can't quite believe it, but I'm about 18 weeks along now. It's crazy how tired growing a tiny person can make you. It also sapped most of my creativity clean gone until recently. And I've even had a pretty easy pregnancy so far. Since it's my first I have no real inclination toward whether it's a boy or a girl based on how the pregnancy is going, but we'll find out soon!

My mom gave me a bunch of baby knitting books for my birthday and I think that has restored a bit of my mojo. I've plunged right in with something from Debbie Bliss' Essential Baby:



It's the hooded carrying bag in Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino in black. Love the yarn, love the pattern, and can't wait to have the first something made for my baby when he/she arrives!

I have been doing some other things (besides sleeping) in the meantime. I finally finished those socks for my husband. They turned out really adorable (I mean...ruggedly handsome) and he loves them. They're his house socks...mostly because I threatened that if he sweated all over them and got them all gross I'd be horribly offended.



Design: Twisted Rib Socks (ravelry link), Knit Picks Free patterns (which they have since taken off their website)

Yarn: Knit Picks Essential Sock in S'mores

Needles: US 3s

Size made: one size fits all men's

Begun: March, 2007

Finished: November, 2007

Notes: The pattern is really straight forward, a very simple sock pattern but with a twist (yuck, yuck). They turned out wonderfully!



I also finished a hat for myself.



Design: Knitty's Foliage

Yarn: Knit Picks Elegance in Lilac

Needles: US 6s

Size made: one size fits all

Begun: November, 2007

Finished: December, 2007

Notes: This Knit Picks yarn is SO nice. And especially nice is the price and that for this pattern you really only need 1 ball. The pattern is great, a wonderful and really fast lace pattern. I've had more compliments on this hat and a couple people even want me to make them one!


Now that I've got some of the mojo back, I'll hopefully be able to get around blogland a little more often and post much more often. I say hope, you never know what life is going to throw at you next!
