I’m sure you’ve probably noticed, but I haven’t really been around very much these last few months. Progress on my Geek Alphabet Blanket has been non-existent since September, and I’m sad to say that I haven’t really picked up my hooks or needles in months.
Even though I haven’t been very active in the Yarn Geek community or with fiber arts in general, I’m excited to tell you about my newest Work In Progress.
At the end of September, I found out that we are going to have a baby!
These last few months have been rough (hence my disappearance from the blogosphere), but they have been so rewarding. As I move into my second trimester, I am beginning to feel a bit more like myself.
I am now 16 weeks pregnant, and aside from fighting off a yucky cold, I find myself with more energy! I’ve even picked up my knitting needles again and have resumed progress on my Geek Alphabet Blanket–which, as you could probably guess, will be my baby’s first handmade blanket.
And good news at that: even after months of absence, I haven’t forgotten how to double-knit! I’ve got nearly 10 squares down, 16 to go (plus the center banner..shhh…)!
I am working on my H for Harry Potter square, and I just love how it is turning out. Only 10 more rows, and them I’ll be moving on to I for Impala (and maybe a Supernatural marathon).
My husband and I are very excited, and we can’t wait to meet our little sweet potato in June! I’ve also got a handful of baby nerd-themed projects whirling around my brain that I’m sure will make an appearance on the blog sometime this summer.
Even though I’m feeling better, I may still be a bit distant from the blog over the next year as I learn to balance my time with these new priorities. If you don’t hear from me, that’s why!
I’d like to send a major THANK YOU to all of you wonderful readers for your understanding. You have helped make the last four months much less stressful. You guys rock!
