All I have left to knit is the body and the sleeve bands! I'm thinking it looks more like a Spring Leaves Cardigan, or Winter Pink, this version doesn't really say autumn at all. I chose the softest pink that I could find it almost doesn't look pink unless it's next to white. I also added a cream colored band to the neckline that is just barely noticeable, but will go really well with the pearl buttons that I plan to use. I can't wait to see this blocked!! (You can find my Ravelry notes HERE.)
This will be a baby gift for a very dear friend who has waited a very long time for a baby. We are actually due a week or so apart which is going to be a lot of fun!
I'm trying to get all of my baby gifts caught up before I have to start my shaky medicine (brethine). I waited too late last time and I didn't get much done. I shake so bad on the brethine that I can't even write my name, much less knit. This time I'm planning ahead a little better. I've already had to start taking the procardia "as needed". Ick! I've also had to be off my feet, but thank goodness I'm not on medicine every 4-6 hours yet. Preterm labor, I'm warning you, I plan to carry this baby to 37 weeks! I want to be able to say just once that I carried a baby FULL TERM! My family is taking very good care of me, Molly is making Granny's Famous Fried Taters for dinner as I type, and everyone is pitching in to keep the place clean. I think I'll keep'em. They ain't half bad, ya know? xo, Sam
