This gave me a giggle, but really, have you tried knitting while naked? Don’t your breasts get in the way? Or is that just me being 9 months pregnant?

Thanks everyone who has commented lately, it’s given me something to smile about. I try to go back to everyone’s blogs, because I have no idea how to directly reply to anyone. I know it’s possible but it seems to escape me. Any tips?

I’ve finished the body of the seamless yoke baby sweater.

(funny stuff, I did a search for the link, on the office computer, had a typo and got this:
Did you mean: shameless york baby sweat? Why no, not really. I don’t even want to know what that means!)

Anyways, the sweater is cute. I messed up a bit on the end, but all that means is it’s a bit longer than it should be. The directions just kinda assume you know how many rows are between buttons and such. Also um, I did the sleeves differently, using my favorite way of doing sleeves. I’m not sure it will work. And then there’s the fact that I ran out of yarn and I don’t have $8 to get more. Or money for buttons. So I have a sleeveless cape type thing! It’s cute none-the-less. And a good way to occupy myself during this miserable week.

It just looks wrong though doesn’t it? I mean besides the fact that there’s no arms. And it needs blocking. I dunno, I’m getting stressed, it looks funky! I feel I should frog it, what do you think?

So way back a month ago I started some thumbless no-scratch mittens for Evie (who am I kidding, all I make is things for Evie!) Well I didn’t finish them because I just was iffy on the yarn and the colors. Last night after the Princess Leia bonnet finished I started on a new set of mittens. I haven’t bought any for her and I realize I can use socks, but why do that when I can keep my mind and hands busy and just make her some?

It’s not the best yarn, Bernat softee baby. But at least it is multi-colored and will match almost all her outfits, right? All I can do is knit from my stash for awhile.

I really need to make some things for my boys. They are 8 and 6 and all I really have left in my stash is a small bit of wool and a lot of acrylic. I was thinking mittens? Any one have any ideas?

Pregnancy stuff

I thought I was in back labor last night. It was terrible. I tried to take a shower but some godforsaken reason we didn’t have any water pressure. WHY? DH has carpal tunnel, he did his best to do some massage but he was in a lot of pain too. I tried to just go to sleep between the contractions that are constant (which, I dunno, do you have contractions during back labor? In the front I mean?) but not in any pattern whatsoever. I got into bed around 930, knew it was a bad idea, and sure enough the restless legs kicked in. All I wanted to do was call the doctor and demand he take this baby out! Luckily I stayed sane and just tried to get through the night. I got an hour or two of sleep, woke up to knit and watch hell’s kitchen (don’t tell me what happens I’m not caught up yet! And was there not a new Top Chef this week?!). Kill time, kill time, kill time. Never heard back from the receptionist about my high blood pressure and swelling, and they are closed today and Monday. Well, the doctor works at a free clinic today, maybe someone will be in the office.

Tuesday looks so far off!

heat It’s a terrible photo I know but it makes the point.  It’s supposed to be 103 degrees today.  Ugh! This is my car parked in the shade.  I can’t wait for fall 😦
