When you love someone, all your saved-up wishes start coming out.
- Elizabeth Bowen
And I meant to post sometime in July . . . So where have I been?
Working, of course. Loving having my husband home. And doing a little creating here and there.
Debbie Bliss' Alphabet Blanket, which was vastly entertaining and far less painful than I had feared.
The Heirloom Baby Aran from an old IK - they weren't kidding about the "heirloom" part - this one took forever.
A little stashbusting in garter stitch.
And I didn't just stop there:
Lots of little sweaters, hats, and even a pair of booties.Sewing
Blankets, complete with (fairly) straight seams and not-too-bad-for-a-total-beginner machine applique.
Flannel burp clothes (and getting this adorable doctor one from a friend).
Noticing a theme here? Because here's the big project:
Growing a Baby
A baby boy due January 29th! He's already the world's most adorable baby/soccer star, and we couldn't be more excited. And distracted. And terrified. And exhilarated.
So it's probably no surprise that all my crafting energies have turned to wee small things. And the rest of my time is spent researching car seats, cribs, and the like. Blogging is just not in the picture for me anymore, although I'm enjoying keeping up with all your blogs in my feed reader. I've loved sharing our knitting and our lives over the past few years, so thanks for that, and thanks for your good wishes as we move on into this next wonderful phase of our lives.
A baby will make love stronger,
days shorter, nights longer,
bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier,
the past forgotten, and the future worth living for.
