Itty Bitty Knitting

The experiment started. A squirt of fluid onto the testing area. A timer, set to two minutes. Twelve seconds later. . . . that is definitely a "plus" sign. It would appear that I will have itty bitty knitting in my future. And in eight months, my husband and I will be welcoming the new addition to our house. I hope the cat isn't too jealous.

What this means is that I am a little queasy ALL THE TIME. Why do they call it morning sickness if it lasts 24/7? I am also tired a lot. I am doing less than before, and yet have less time for knitting and reading. I find that I am just staring at a television screen, instead of happily knitting away. I didn't know this would be cutting into my knitting time/energy! Well, hopefully things will settle in and I will have more energy again. Hey, don't laugh. It might happen!

In the meantime, while my sweetie was hunting last weekend, I was settled under a warm aphgan, watched DVD's of West Wing, and knit lace. Three more repeats on the Branching Out scarf. I feel like I am finally mastering the pattern, and hopefully the concept of lace. I made a couple of minor errors, but was able to identify and correct them quickly. Everyone is going to make mistakes. The real trick is being able to correct the mistakes.

And for anyone who was curious, no deer were harmed in the production of this blog during hunting season. My freezer is empty, and my sweetie disappointed. Next year, darling.

Today, it is all about the positive test.


  1. Congratulations! Another little knitter on the way. The "tireds" will go away (but may return towards the end again).

    Bummer on Bambi-lack. DD didn't get one yet either, but then she's only been out once. There's something like 2 or 3 more weeks of shotgun, then a return to bow for another week or two. I don't really try to keep track anymore ; ) . It's also the end of the semester, so studying comes first.

  2. Congrats! I found you through the Knitting Blog webring. I've enjoyed reading your blog!

  3. Congrats on the new baby. I was so excited with my first pregnancy..I was happy all the time. It turned out the whole pregnancy everything made me laugh so hard I thought I would wet myself. Then she came and she has been nothing but fun and laughter herself. Now her twin little sisters....well thank goodness I love them or I don't know what I would do. They can tear a room apart in 15 sec. flat.
