jaywalkers - now with more knitting and less whining!

Monday, January 16, 2006

Thank you all again for your kind, sweet words. I am feeling much better, I still feel a normal for me level of pregnancy crappiness but everything else has settled done. And look - knitting!

Jaywalker number one

I really appreciate the sentiment of your comments, that I shouldn’t feel rushed to knit and blog about it. I must confess - I don’t! As much as I love to have knitting to blog about, I am stressing about the knitting because after all this time worrying about jinxing myself by knitting baby stuff while doing IVF, it’s finally ok to knit for our baby and the numerous other miracle babies in my life that are due around the same time. The fertility clinics of Australia seem to have suddenly gotten their act together late last year and I have much crafting to do! The knit blog community has given me so much in the last year that it really does make my day when I feel like I have something really worthwhile to blog about. But this urge to knit is about wanting hand made gifts for my own baby and for the babes of dear friends who have been waiting far too long.

Anyway last night it felt great to be knitting again and I am looking forward to starting the first of the baby projects as soon as the Jaywalkers are done. I have plans for 4 quilts (yes I know that is not knitting), a couple of blankets, some hats and a sweater or two. Will I actually be able to manage all that before June/July? That is the question.

It doesn’t matter if you get it all done on time or even nearly, as long as you have fun in the process and look after yourself everything else is fine. Besides, if your present for someones baby is a little later than everyone elses, yours is more likely to be remembered :)

Your Jaywalkers look great! And I think that knitting baby stuff is one of the most satisfying (and speedy) things to do. Plus, if you knit the one-year size (or so), you have more leeway about when you give it to them. :)

Glad you’re feeling better, too.

Glad to see you are feeling better. I’m looking forward to seeing what you make for the new bubs. How exciting…your due date will be here before you know it.

hey, I wanted to ask you a question I was thinking of using silkroad aran in posie for a cabled cushion. I havn’t seen it in person is it red or pink?? The photos you took make it look more red which is what I’m after. I would appreciate your opinion before I go ahead and order it.

I am so glad you are feeling better. You have plenty of time to knit some baby things. Plus they don’t all have to be complete before the baby comes, there will be time afterwards too. :)

Your jaywalker looks lovely. I can’t wait to see what wonderful baby knits you have in store.

I am so glad that you are having a happy and healthy pregnancy! I have read your blog for almost a year and you truly are a inspiring knitter. Take Care!
