Well, at least we know that this son, too, will have a forceful personality. All of my needling amounted to naught, and yesterday my due date came and went. (And really, now he’s got to stay in there for a few more days–today is Jacob’s birthday, and I’d love for them to have at list a little time in between.)
The lack of knitting is driving me far crazier than the Extreme Pregnant.
(Taken the other day after Jacob fell asleep in the car on the way home from a play date. I got at least 5 rows before I couldn’t grip the needles anymore. Sigh.)
The crafting urge hasn’t gone away, though. Quite the contrary, since for various reasons I can’t “nest” at home as much as I’d like. The CTS isn’t affecting machine-sewing, so while generally speaking I don’t enjoy sewing nearly as much as I enjoy knitting, there’s been a lot of sewing going on around here. I can’t share most of it with you, sadly. But I figured that in lieu of another week of silence, you may enjoy seeing the crib quilt I’m currently making for a friend who gave birth right around the time of our move.
I finished the quilt top yesterday, and noticed while I was ironing it (in front of a window) that it looked like stained glass when the light came through.
Here’s what the actual top looks like. Now this just needs to be layered, quilted, and bound. But first, if you’ll excuse me, train-shaped cupcakes for a very special kid.
