I've slowed WAAAAYYY down...

... so yeah, things have slowed down on the knitting front. Apparently my body is working overtime on the baby-making/nausea front. Yup -- you read that right. We're expecting. Due right around Christmas-time. I'm excited, but totally over the nausea and exhaustion. I'm tired by 11am every day. And that is with getting up at 8am. Yup, three whole hours of feeling only queasy, rather than queasy and sleepy. ha ha

BUT - a new baby will be fun. A lot of work, since we have two right now -- a two year old and a one year old. Little girl will be 21 months when new baby makes his or her appearance. Fun times. Right? Or am I kidding myself? Guess we'll find out in December!

So, I'm a little behind on the knitting front. Have slowed a wee bit on the yarn buying front, though. hee hee -- a little. I got a package today with 24oz. of Alpine Cotton II -- I can finally start the Tea Party dress pattern from LTK! :) Soooo excited! Also some merinos and some wool/mohair yarn for some instock. I got the yarn from my friend Catherine from Knitting Notions. She has GREAT stuff! Check her out! Also got some more yarn from Irish Baby Knits. Heavens, she has amazing colors! And the best names. Love them.

I'm waiting on my dpn's still so that I can dive into the mountains of sock yarn I have sitting around in the house. Meant to make a pair for my husband's birthday, but the needles didn't get here. ~sigh~ Oh well -- he knows they are coming. Sometime before winter, I hope! ha ha

Still buried under a pile of yarn that needs to be knit. Its so hard to deal with the nausea. You know its bad when I don't WANT to knit. But, we're trying our best here. If I owe you something, I promise it will come.

no, haven't been able to knit for baby yet -- though I am collecting yarn for projects already. :) I'm too behind right now, though, to knit for someone that is so far from being born. ha ha
