First of all, thank you for all the lovely notes and advice left in the comments! They mean a lot to me. On the baby turning front, I have a call in to the chiropractor, the acupuncturist and have been spending time on my hands and knees multiple times a day. Yes, I've managed to do it in bed without waking up my husband, much to my surprise. No, I haven't resorted to doing it in public, yet.
Also, happy solstice and Happy Hanukkah to those who celebrate! I always thought that mother nature was brilliant to have the days start getting longer early in winter. For me, it makes the cold weather and overcast days way more tolerable knowing the days are getting longer.
As for the promised pictures of baby knits, here are a few. I still need to take more pictures but we have been having rain off and on for the past few days. Today is clear so we will see if I can find a dry spot to take a few pictures. The first sweater is Baby Mine worked in Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino. This is the newborn size. I have a feeling that my child will fit in this for all of about a week or two before growing out of it. That's all right though since it was a lot of fun to knit. Since taking this photo I've added buttons (wooden apples) but still haven't blocked it. This is an ongoing theme in my handknitting life. When will the blocking fairy visit me?
Then I went on to make Baby Yours, also in Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, in the 6 month size. This was another fun knit since all the pieces are different (execpt the two sleeves obviously). I've misplaced the buttons for this sweater but I have high hopes in finding them while we are rearranging and cleaning our house in preparation for the new arrival. You will note that this sweater is also unblocked. Surprise, surprise.
Last up for this instalment a pair of Baby Bell Bottoms in sport weight superwash merino yarn from Tactile. I made these in the 24 month size since I had two skeins of this color way. I modified the pattern and knit it all in the round. I would like to make another pair of these in a smaller size since I think they are so cute.
I've put baby knitting on hold while I work on a few things for the holidays. I'm more than a little behind considering it's already the 22nd but it wouldn't be the first time I've given half finished items for Christmas.
I've got a busy day ahead so I must be off!
