fogt baby wrap
raveled here. the pattern is with test knitters now.
p.s. for those of you who would like to see some pregnant pics, here’s the whole fam, with a glimpse of my belly and the toddler in knit goods, and here’s me at 27 weeks! and an ultrasound pic.
wee sweaters. the pattern is heading to the test knitters shortly.
sport weight yarn. big buttons. i love them.
two down, one to go. i need to finish this soon so i can distribute them… especially to that one person who has already had her baby. running a bit late on that, but in my defense, the baby was running a bit early.
stripey on ravelry here. yellow on ravelry there.
have a very merry christmas!
so i have three good excuses for not being here for almost a month.
1) i am knitting! i finished a sweater. other things in progress including a vest and sweater for M, and this summer’s shawl which i still haven’t finished.
2) indie knit and spin. vendor searching, vendor accepting. it is expanding this year, so it’s taking a bit more work.
3) and lastly, the first trimester of a new pregnancy. baby building is hard… especially with a teethy 2 year old who no longer naps.
notes about the sweater:
on ravelry here.
this sweater would have fit much much better if i had actually finished it back in 2010 before i got pregnant with m. instead, my body has changed shape and i could have used to go up at least one size. i moved the buttons down so they didn’t choke me and i think it may be quite cute with my pregnant belly sticking out of it… or if not cute, at least it will still fit since it only has the 3 buttons.
i’ll also be publishing a pattern tomorrow! woohoo.
i don’t know why i always post blocking pictures. i think i just like the way they look there on the floor. plus, maybe they make me feel successful ;)
also blocking, 4 skeins of handspun. photos to come.
do you remember this sweater? from 2010?!? well, i only had half of one of the fronts to finish.
so on vacation i finished that and sewed the seams. now just to block and the button band! yay!
Was planning another striped dress and this happened instead. Love how the neckline turned out.
And I am now officially a year behind in grading patterns. Kellyn was originally knit last summer. Not sure how I feel about that ;)
