And I am perfectly fine with that! I had a really rough past couple of weeks, but now I am back to being comfortably uncomfortable and am more than willing to wait the full 42 weeks if need be.
I am able to walk and bend down now with less effort and not too much pain. Before, I couldn’t walk without… Teetering? I guess… Kind of thrusting my upper body in order to get one of my legs to move. Sort of an adapted waddle, if you will. Now I can walk pretty normally. Well, normal according to a pregnant lady! That said, I finally got some laundry going. That piles up so fast! My partner tried his best to keep up on house work. Tried… haha
These are kind of old… I tried to use up my one skein of self-striping yarn which alternates between grey, red, blue, orange, and “omg, did someone pee on this?” Yellow. After knitting baby mitts, another swirl baby hat (other one I made is pink), and baby socks, I still have enough to do… Uh, all of the above all over again. I’m trying my hardest not to add the remaining yarn to my amazingly gigantic stash! At the same time, I am so bored with that yarn. More so, I am bored of the smal gauge…
I’m taking a break from sport weight and 3.75 mm needles and upgrading to a much more generous size 8 needles and bulky weight yarn as I moved on to some knit leg warmers for my daughter. I don’t have any pictures, but I am 80% done the first one in the colours she has selected… Eggplant purple, green, and an accent of yellow. I decided to add in a vikkel braid into them since I recently learned about those and wanted to try out a new style. They’re… Not terribly difficult, but they are annoying to learn at first since there aren’t very many tutorials or written patterns out there for them. Here is the pattern for the leg warmers. I’m knitting the children’s size and with the bulky weight + size 8 US needles, it’s fitting my daughter’s skinny 5-year-old legs perfectly thus far!
