Sorry to keep everyone on pins and needles, but there is no sign of the baby yet. Today was my last doctor's appointment and the baby seems to be very happy to stay inside (her heart rate is very good). I didn't think that I would have to go to my last appointment, but hey, I also never had a baby before, so what do I know? She still has 5 days to get here on her own and if she doesn't, I am going into the hospital at 9pm on Tuesday for the inducement.
I will try to post before I head to the hospital, if possible. So, check back for the good news.
If I don't go into labor tonight or tomorrow morning, DH is taking me shopping tomorrow. I am feeling a bit of cabin fever waiting for this little girl to come out, so a little bit of yarn and fabric browsing might cheer me up. Plus, we are planning to have Mexican food after the shopping which I am excited about. For some reason, I have been wanting to eat spicy food during the 3rd trimester, the hotter the better!
In the mean time, I have been knitting like crazy. Each day I wake up and realize that the baby is still inside, it fuels me to knit even faster. It's like I am racing against her!
Here are my current "Work in Progress":
Baby Brights (CH-33), top down raglan sweater from Fiber Trends. I call it the P1, K1 Hell sweater. I am knitting the largest size in DK weight yarn, but the yarn, Plymouth Encore Colorspun DK, feels like fingering weight at times. I finally got both sleeves done, but I still have miles of P1, K1 for the body of the sweater (151 sts). I find that P1, K1 really slows down my knitting. I rather knit stockinette or garter. Of course, knitting this in worsted weight would have made this whole thing a lot easier. Note to self for next time!
Bubby Bear from Knitty. This is part of a baby set that I am making for a friend who is due in March. Her baby shower is in February, so I figured that I need a head start.
Simple Shoes (PDF link) from Uniform Studio. I love this pattern, totally seamless and quick. I had made a pair in Manos Del Uruguay for my own baby. This is also part of the baby set for my friend. I have one shoe almost done.
I also hope to have one more Finished Object (FO) to show before the baby comes. It's a crochet project that just needs to be sewn up.
