Back on Track!

So I've been a little distracted recently. I am now 15 weeks pregnant and starting to feel like my old self again. I felt somewhat proud of myself a few weeks ago when I went to pick out fabric for the baby blanket I'm making. That's right, I failed to mention it was a blanket for my own baby! Charlie and I are expecting our first born of August 27th, 2010. I'm not sure if it will be a boy or a girl... YET! I get to find out in 5 weeks.
Needless to say I spent most of January staring into space. I had all the time in the world to knit and make things and I just couldn't lift a finger. I was in shock that I could be pregnant already. I had just gone off the pill; then suddenly I am a mom in training. I needed a small adjustment time. Now I'm finally feeling better and ready to take on this pregnancy with optimism and excitement! I'm starting to feel little flutters and strange new sensations. I have also decided I am going to make my very first sweater! For my very first Baby!


















At least I'm going to start it, it sounds like the next 5 1/2 months wont be as low key as I had imagined, but work is work and I gotta take it! This is the Yarn I'm going to use! Since I don't know if it will be a boy or a girl I figure this would work for both! And then when we have more kids It will work again!





















Here's the Picture from the pattern. I think it is very cute and will be an excellent for my very first sweater attempt! I think I might modify it a little bit though, who knows how it will turn out! I Also have a bunch of buttons left over from a couple of Christmas presents that will be super cute on the shoulders. And since I will be having the baby in August I will totally need size 3-6month sweaters for the winter months! Rock out! Now I just have to get started and find the time to get it done! I hope to make some booties and hats too, more to come!

  1. Mommy in training - I love it! Knit away - just a warning... the available projects out in the world are WAY more than the time you have. This is a great looking sweater - can't wait to see Baby Alexander in it, and snuggle and kiss little one's neck and ... am I going too far? xoxoxoxoxoxoxo
