What's this? Am I back?

And for how long??

Last weekend, I lost my hat and gloves. Sadly, they disappeared one day at work. Let me tell you, that made for a chilly walk to the car!

So I went to my favourite LYS and bought myself some yummy Sublime - a sumptuous blend of fine merino, silk, and cashmere. I cast on for Odessa - I had to get more yarn, but I now have an absolutely wonderful toque. Mmmmmm . . .
Funny thing is, in the midst of knitting Odessa, my old hat and gloves reappeared - in my coat pocket - in the middle of the mall. Freaky, no? I can firmly attest that they were not there one minute (as I left the house) and then suddenly, they were! Bizarre.

But, I digress. The moral of the story? Since last weekend, I have been KNITTING! Yay!!! I have made my hat, and I have started on baby bunny slippers. I know 3 pregnant women right now, and all new babies need cute little bunny slippers ;)
I'm so glad to be back at it!

I haven't yet crossed the 14 week mark - where the chance of miscarriage significantly drops - but I think I may start knitting up baby things regardless. My brother's baby will need a gift. Mr. Wonderful's friend's baby will need a gift. My own baby will need to be covered in gifts. You know how it is.

Hooray! You're back! Can't wait to see your Odessa. Glad you're feeling better.

Odessa is such a fun pattern, and the results are stunning. I've made 2 and will probably make more. Can't wait to see yours!
