It's all about me!

tree jacket

I'm sick to death of making baby things so I'm working on something for me. This is my tree jacket from zephyr style. I am using Valley Yarns Longmeadow, which my mom bought for me at Stitches Midwest this year. I think it's going well. It's basically a top down raglan, so I've customized it to my size and my guage just knitting until it fits the way I want. It's a great way to work. I've elongated the garter stitch area so that it totally covers my boobs. Then if I want I can wear it without a tank underneath and not look totally trashy.

That is the mess of ends from the baby jacket and blanket that I gave at a shower this past weekend. Hopefully it will be the last baby shower I need to go to for a while. No offense to the babymakers in this world, but I am baby showered out!

Speaking of babies, my sister is currently 1 centimeter dilated! I know this doesn't mean the baby is necessarily coming soon, but still its exciting! Her due date is Nov. 5th, but almost all babies in our family are born early (between a month and a week early).

That's me (on the far left) making a rare appearance on my own blog with my siblings at my sister's baby shower. Here's another lovely picture of me, my sister and mom at the shower. (isn't my sister a cute little pregnant lady?)

I'll have an update on bud later this week! Click the pictures to make bigger.

Oooo, baby soon, that is so exciting. I just got the tree sweater pattern today and hope to make it soon. I have to cast off a few other projects first. Dang.
