introducing… a handspun blanket

if i have, in the past 3 months, seemed distracted, or not my usual bloggy self, this might explain some things. i found out right before rhinebeck that i was pregnant again.

and when i showed up to my friend sarah’s house, she gifted the impending babe with this beautiful blanket. this is super special because sarah and i learned to dye and spin together back in vancouver. it’s also super special because, well, it’s a handpsun blanket!

apparently there’s even some stuff i dyed in there. sarah used the subtle stripes techniques. it’s truly amazing in person, you’ll have to take my word for it.  thanks sarah!

and lastly, if you want to see the impending, here’s the belly at 12 weeks. since i miscarried late in the first trimester last time, i popped quite early this time. and since i had maternity jean hand-me-downs from a friend, i’ve been wearing them since 10 weeks.  it’s funny to wear maternity clothes when nobody really can tell your pregnant yet.  it’s like a very silly secret.

p.s. i am now keeping track of my pregnancies as they relate to fiber festivals.  one week before maryland last year i miscarried, and one week before rhinebeck this year, i found out i was pregnant again.

  1. Oh, congratulations! A pregnancy after miscarriage is a wonderful blessing, as well as a nervous, fragile time. I had to remind myself to remain optimistic and not worry so much, but I never did fully relax until I had her in my arms. Congrats and enjoy!

  2. Sarah’s blanket is gorgeous! I am so happy for you that you’re pregnant again and will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers throughout. :)

  3. I’m so happy for you! Congratulations. My first pregnancy ended in a miscarriage at 11 weeks. Now I have an 11 yo, and 8 yo and a 1 yo.

    That blanket is gorgeous! I bet you can almost just see her/him wrapped up in that blankie and nursing away!

  4. You look lovely! Keep taking those photos – you’ll appreciate them later on (in the baby book). Sarah’s blanket is gorgeous – really vivid colours.
    Cheers, and Congratulations,

  5. Congratulations, Cozy! I’m 9 1/2 weeks and aching to put on maternity pants…you may have just given me the courage.

    I’m so happy for you!!!

  6. Congratulations Cozy! I’m almost finished with my socks using your beautiful yarn. I love your photos. I look at them for inspiration almost every workday morning before starting accounting. Love and Friendship, hope to see you soon! Julianne

  7. I’m so happy to hear about the cosybump! Will it be a belle or a Beau? Guess we shall have to wait and see. Sending good vibes to you–and your weensy little bumplette!!

  8. Congratulations! I am about 12 weeks pregnant too, and I’d say we look about the same! I put on the maternity pants when I want to feel really cozy but can mostly get by in my regular pants for now.
