So. The last time I blogged, I announced I was pregnant. That was back in March. And here I sit today, on my due date (looks like this little one will be late like his brother was) and I realize that I miss blogging. So here I am. I have no idea if anyone will read this, but it's all right. I blog for myself. I've kept this blog since 2004, that's a long long time, and I want to keep doing it even if I sometimes go through weeks or months of silence. But right now, I want to blog. An odd thing seems to happen to me when I'm pregnant. Both times, I lost my knitting mojo. It happened when I was preggo with Julien and it happened this second time too. You would think I'd want to go crazy knitting baby things, but I don't. I barely touched my needles for months. Then at the beginning of september, I had two weeks of vacation which were followed by the start of my maternity leave and I finally finished some things.
Teddy Bear Baby Blanket (September)
Pattern: Teddy Bear Baby Blanket, by Barbara Breite. Yarn: 11 skeins of Knit Picks Swish Worsted in Gulfstream (held doubled) Needles: US 11 - 8 mm circular
Owlie Hat (September)
Pattern: Owlie Hat, by Teresa Cole. Yarn: Cascade 220, colorway 8905 Needles: US 8 - 5 mm circular (magic loop) And that's all I knit for the baby! After that, I decided I wanted to work on my socks in progress, so I finished these:
Grape Vine socks (October)
Pattern: Grape Vines, by Robyn Grauer. Yarn: Knit Picks Stroll Tonals in Blue Violet Needles: US 1 - 2.25 mm DPNs I'm currently working on a pair of Cookie A's Vilai that I actually started in February! I don't expect I'll finish them anytime soon considering I'm still on the first sock and baby will have to come out soon, right? Right?

Wow, another late baby?!! Come out baby! It's past your due date! LOL. Good luck when you actually go into labor. Hope it's a smoothe delivery.

GORGEOUS socks!! Thanks for knitting up my pattern! Love the teddy bear blanket & the baby hat too... they'll for sure keep baby warm this winter.

welcome back. I just had my little one and am waiting for when I finally get a free moment in my day to pick knitting back up. I miss it.
