I went to visit my mom yesterday. I brought a sweater I was working on for my little one. Oh, I guess I ought to mention before I go any further – it’s a girl, and we’re naming her Lucie. šŸ™‚ To continue – I was making this cute little sweater (Puerperium – free on Ravelry) out of a lovely soft pink alpaca (timiQuipa sport-weight alpaca) and mom decided she was going to work on a blanket she is making for my sweet baby.Ā Mom hadĀ me pickĀ out the pattern from the Mary Maxim catalogue when I was first pregnant. It is so cute – mint green with a lacy border that is knitted separately and sewn on.

It was so nice to sit and knit with mom. We had tea, poked fun at my dad as he tried to hide from the crazy knitting ladies, and played with the new yarn I bought to make MORE cute things for Lucie. Hopefully someday, mom and I can sit and knit with my little girl as we teach her her first stitches…

Aaaaah. 19 weeks + 4 days. I’m almost halfway there!

The good news is, I’ve managed to finish not one but TWO little sweaters for my littleĀ bambino. I made the Leaf-Border Hoodie by Kristen Rengren in Malabrigo Sock (Impressionist Sky), and the Bitty Bump by Gina Bonomo in Malabrigo Aquarella (Cardona). I find it kind of funny that all of my baby-related projects are in some form of Malabrigo yarn – at least, the FO’s are.

I really need to work on my Mommy Snug and my Bump Sweater, especially since I’ve been getting a “bitty bump” of my own! My belly doesn’t quite stick out as far as my boobs do (yet), but with the fall upon us, it’d be nice to have something warm to cover my growing belly.

Looking forward to my ultrasound this Saturday…hopefully they will be able to tell us if it is a boy ninja or a girl ninja. šŸ™‚
