Modifications: Followed pattern as published.
Opinion: It was a long knit, but I really enjoyed it. I like honeycomb stitch. I got to learn Elastic Bind Off as well as Three Needle Bind Off during this project.
Now I just need a baby to fit into it. I thought it looked a little large, so I tried it on Sean, but certainly, he's too big for it! (Phew!) I'm thinking it may be more 6-9 month size, rather than 6 month size, but I guess we'll see when Mack fits into it!
Jamie and I watched tv all afternoon being a bit lazy. Lazy (rainy) Saturdays rock. (Especially when you're almost 35 weeks pregnant!) Wow, I'm 1 week shy of being 9 months pregnant. After a few episodes of Everybody Loves Raymond we watched the movie Balls of Fury. It was alright. I think I closed my eyes a few times during the movie, and didn't miss much. It was a comedy, about a Ping Pong Champion who is needed for an FBI under cover operation. Not a movie I'd watch again, but entertaining none-the-less.
Don't forget that Secret Pal 12 Sign Ups will end shortly. We're leaving it open until Monday, June 2nd, 2008. I'm hostessing again, and it's going to be a lot of fun. You can sign up in a price category this time (30$ over 3 months or 60$ over 3 months) to better suit your budget.
Rest in Peace Luc Bourdon, a Canadian defenseman playing for the Vancouver Canucks. He also played interchangeably for the Manitoba Moose, in the AHL. At the age of 21, he died in a motor cycle accident on May 29th, 2008, 2 days ago. It was really nice of the NHL to do a small tribute to him before tonight's game started. The game is still on, but Pittsburgh is winning 1-0. First period just ended. Jamie's watching the game at a friend's house tonight, and I'm chilling out with Sean. We're flipping back and forth between episodes of King of Queens and the hockey game.
I started reading Knocked Up by Rebecca Eckler. I'm just a few pages in, but I love it just as much as her other 2 (which I oddly read out of order, but it doesn't really matter). I'm sure it'll be a fast read.
I'm going to go hang out with my little man, and work on Mackenzie's Norwegian Sweet Baby Cap. I'm about 45% finished it and I want to start getting some FO's before Mack's born. The plan is to finish the cap, and then Sean's Cabled Pullover is next in line. After that I hope to get some more squares done on Sean's blankie.
My birthday is in 16 days, I'm getting very excited. 16 days also marks 37 weeks pregnant (full term!) Time's a ticking!
