Swollen Fingers = Swollen Credit Card
I may not be able to knit as much, but gosh darn it, I have enough mobility to pull out my credit card! This weekend we did our baby shopping. Stroller, car seat, changing table, night light, rocker and YARN. Purl was right nearby...and I knew exactly what I wanted... So here is Manos del Uruguay Cotton Stria in color 213 (seafoam green) which I intend for this baby shrug from Simply Baby by Debbie Bliss.
I also picked up some Rowan Cashsoft 4ply in this absolutely yummy dirty, dusty, lavendar grey (sh423) for the Cable Blanket. My mom bought some very cool baby clothes recently, so cool that they deserve their own blanket. The pattern actually calls for dk but this color is so perfect that I was willing to buy more yarn and double up. I can't wait to start knitting this.
Neither can Lucy. This is "my" cat. She didn't realize she was a cat until she met my hotty hubby's cat. She is very skitterish and acts very differently from the other 2 furballs that we have. (His, Hers and Ours.) But in these last couple of weeks, she has been a bit like her old self, and I wonder if it has to do with my pregnancy. She follows me most of the day when I am home, and lays next to me, even now as I type, she is right behind me taking a snooze.
And here is a progress shot on the Coverlet. Section 5 is taking much longer than the other sections. The shaping has short rows, but instead of the stitches going down in number row by row, the shaping simply shifts to the left. Neat to watch it progress, but obviously takes a little longer. Regardless, it's coming along! 10 more sections to go and no, I have not cast on anything else. Yet.
