Propeller Hat, Tubey, and thumbless mittens
And yes, I will give you the pattern for the newborn thumbless mitts in a subsequent post, but I'm too tired at the moment (pregnant insomnia last night...was up till 4am, woke up at 7:15 with the children...bleah)
After casting off of the 4th baby mitt, I just didn't have it in me to do a stuffed animal too, so instead I wound some handspun into cakes...
This was very happy. Much more fun than working with Wool-Ease (although I can't knock the easy-care warmth of it! Great value as stash yarn.)
The children were excited about winding the yarn; they love to help crank the ball winder and watch the swift go round. Of course this can cause for some exciting moments with not-so-inexpensive equipment but we made it through.
I had a baby shower to go to this morning though (not mine -- for a friend who is due in about 2 weeks), so I managed to take a shower and actually blew my hair dry and put makeup on. This is quite a feat, so today was a good day for belly pics.
31 weeks, my friends. Nine weeks left and counting. (Supposed due date: December 18th)
