Waiting Game

Since baby is now full term, it's just a matter of waiting. Waiting can be good or bad. On one hand, I'd like the baby to hurry up and get here so we can start getting used to each other and I can stop going to the bathroom every 30 minutes, but on the other hand, I've been getting some good knitting done. I finished Braidy for Sejin, which I'm really in love with. I made it in record time for a scarf. Scarves usually take me a long time because I get bored with them being so repetitive. I think I'm going to make an identical one of these for myself.Also, I crocheted up some cute snowflakes to put on my tree. They were really quick and I think they make my sad little tree look better. I used a mixture of glue and water to stiffen them.
Now I'm working on a pair of mittens that may or may not work out. The pattern is written for working in the round on double pointed needles, but I don't have the right size needles. So, I'm trying to work them flat and then seam them up. This is my first time doing this and I'm nervous about the result. They may get scrapped. Trouble is, I can't find another mitten pattern I like for bulky yarn.

So that's (aside from some work I'm finishing up) how I've been playing the waiting game.
Oh yes. Toto's boyfriend, Moxie, stopped by yesterday for a visit. She was excited to see him at first, but was then a little put off by how quickly he made himself at home. He stole her throne by the window and went for a nap. She couldn't believe it!
Toto - cautious:
Toto - ticked off ... "Who does he think he is?"

Oh Sarah!

I've caught the knitting bug. I'm digging up my Grandmother's knitting needles while back in the States.

Have a great Holiday and good luck with your delivery! I'm partial to Jan. 14th, our daughter was born on that day!

The snowflakes look great. I need to start knitting some things but probably won't until january. I am going to stop by the knitting store and try to find a cute dress pattern for that cream, blue and orange yarn I got with you in Dongdaemun.

OOh, great. I was wondering if you had used it yet. What season are you knitting for (I forget what type of fiber you bought)? I have some cute dress patterns bookmarked....I'll send them to you in case you like any.

Ack! The widget says 12 days!

I think it must be broken or something... @.@
That can't be right!
