Sweet Pea's been sick :(
We don't know what, we don't know why . . . She's been running a very low grade fever off and on. Friday she was the clingiest she has ever been. Spent 6 hours napping on me over the course of the day. (I had booked it off).
Seems the napping paid off though!
Does this girl look sick to you?!
Can't even get her to stand still long enough for a picture.
Of course, because she's been sick she currently has Mr. Wonderful and I jumping at her every whimper. I admit it, we're baby whipped. And it's exhausting. Tonnes of cuddles, reading books over and over, nursing constantly, walking around hand in hand, 'pick me up, pick me up, pick me up!', 'put me DOWN!', 'pick me up!!' . . . Lordy.
Since my anti-climactic return to work, I've been doing some knitting.
Stuff you haven't seen yet:
Sunset Pommel Sheep
I had some Cascade 220 left over from the rug. Not a lot in any one colour - just little bits here and there of almost every colour I had used. So I thought toys don't take much yarn, generally speaking. Pommel sheep really don't take much yarn. And then I made this little lady.
Whisper Cardigan (IK Spring 2009):
I don't have good photos of this one yet.
After casting on and frogging over and over, I finally selected a different yarn for my Whisper cardi - and it was the best decision I could have made. I used Rowan Cashsoft - a cashmere blend . . . YUM!
Accidental boob shot! Don't my legs look funny??
I made a size medium, and I have a 35 or 36 inch bust - I would say to anyone making this sweater stitch count is really unimportant. Pick a size for cast on purposes only, then work in custom sizing. The medium is a bit snug on me . . . fortunately the yarn relaxed a bit, so it's more comfortable now.
I finished this sweater at work. :)
And currently I'm working on a sweater for Sweet Pea.
I'm working it up from some yarn I bought at Rhinebeck, the day before I learned I was pregnant. It's been hanging around for nearly 2 years now, looking for the right project.
I love that this sweater taught me how to twist stitches without a cable needle.
All of this just in the last 3 weeks (plus a birthday party, and my return to work). No wonder I'm exhausted.
