This afternoon we headed over to Jenn's house (& Jakob!) for our monthly Mommies-Who-Talk-About-Knitting Afternoon. Blogless Kate with newborn Liam and Tara with 7 month old Maxime joined us. I actually finished my thrummed mittens! I cast off the last stitch while there (though, didn't do much other knitting - as Sean was very active while there).
I actually turned my thrummed mittens inside out - so that I could weave in the ends on the thumb as well as the top of the mitten - and also trim some of the thrums, some of them are way too long and it's bunching up way too much inside - I want the thrums to eventually thrum smoothly inside. After I give it a haircut, I'll post a final right side out pictures.
Right now they just look like scary monsters..... Sean finds them amusing! A new source of entertainment! LOL... maybe I should keep them like that for a while!
Today while out - I ran a few errands, and stumbled upon these beauties. I got them, with a gift certificate I got for Xmas. I will be making their debut at Sean's 1st birthday party. Very excited to wear them! I don't usually "do" heels - but they're my sexy mama shoes now! (17 weeks pregnant and I'm wearing high heels - yes, I'm crazy!)
I told you I had stitch holders... yep - found them. Not really sure how they got lost in the first place - but no more having to use safety pins... I've got these babies back! In numerous sizes too - great for any project. Now - if I could only find a ruler.... (not a measuring tape - I've got plenty of those to measure my knitting projects... I'm talking about an actual ruler - to draw straight lines...!) I only have my office lef to unpack since the move - I'm sure it's got to be somewhere, right?
I've been feeling the baby move! Very excited about this. And it's not just those little flutters anymore - which I've been feeling for a while - and since this is not my 1st pregnancy, I know this time what it is... but I've really been feeling the baby move - and it's really awesome (until it becomes kicking of course!)
Tonight I went to the monthly Montreal Knitting Guild Meeting. It was a lot of fun, even if I wasn't feeling too good. (Runny nose) (I blame my son for that one!) It was good to get away from my boys for a few hours tonight though. I do have to say!
The February Sock Club kit is now up for sale in the shop. Very excited about February's kit - up on sale until the end of January - be sure to get your kit!
