Ingenue in Plucky Knitter MCN Worsted in Early Light
A sweater I can wear! It mostly fits and is so warm and heavy. It took knitting and re-knitting - but I am pleased with the results - though I am not entirely comfortable wearing it, I think because, in my opinion, the lush MCN hugs the curves a bit, which makes me want to keep my belly sucked in - maybe a girdle? But then I find anything created to hold your belly in just squeezes "everything" north like a toothpaste tube - and that aint pretty. Anyways. In spite of the struggles, I am kind of itching to cast on another sweater. I'm thinking Peasy...as in easy? Doubtful, but I have swatched anyways.
Baby Moc-a-Soc by Bekah Knits in Yarntini Drunken Pear
dontcha kind of want a grown-up pair?
These are booties for my Valentine, Jackson. I got to spend the day with my sister and her new son yesterday - well, I called myself mama twice, omg. oops. I am so thrilled to have a baby to visit, and he was so good - slept on my shoulder for four hours. That's what aunties are for, right? My sister is having some of the same mommy growing pains I had - life changes so much when you decide to have children - more technicolor in many ways but also more complicated. Spontaneity is surely harder at the baby stage. Jackson is the light of her life though, and she is doing such a good job - my nose tingles, I am so proud of her and her husband!
