making stuff

behold! the father of my child.

and i made a maternity dress out of a sheet.

and look at the teensy sweater! that i also made.

and this is how large i have become so far.

and, why yes, i have become one of those people who only talks about babies. who woulda thought?

(i finished the sweater out of the ball of wool pictured below a long time ago; i just don't have any good pictures of me in it yet.)

Lookin' good, ever'body!! Although I laughed at first, thinking you meant you were gonna wear the teensy sweater. xoxoxoxoxo

You look great, Tia! I have found knitting for a small person to be very satisfying. I can afford to buy nice yarn, and I can actually finish projects fairly quickly -- although there have been a couple of occasions when Frances has grown more quickly than I knit.

You don't look very large.

How many months are you?

Are you gonna keep your baby in a dresser drawer in your tiny studio?

No more late night sing-a-longs!

FYR: the "word verification" below is "brestpro"! Fitting??

thanks, ladies!

i wish i had enough of that bamboo yarn for a sweater for me. it's so soft!

you would not believe how many hours i have spent researching yarn for a baby blanket. and i'm not telling you.

lori, i am now 27 weeks and much larger now. (the math makes that about 7 months, but the docs count from your LMP, making gestation actually 40 weeks, or 10 months, so when you just say you are "7 months pregnant" it can be confusing. because i have 3 more months to go, not 2.)

wait till you see the next muumuu, sar.

Tia, the baby is going to be here SO SOON. You look great. I ain't got anything funny to say -- just happy for you, and annoyed that I can't get it together enough to see you. :(

I always thought you would be one of those people who only talks about babies were you to have a baby.
