I’ve taken up my knitting again (I had to dig through a closet to find all of my stuff) and am working on another Puerperium Cardigan. It’s such a happy thing to knit, probably mostly because my thoughts are full of babies when I am working on it. This one isn’t for my baby gift stash, however – it’s for us. Or, rather, for our new baby, due in January! I bought the mulberry silk/merino yarn on a whim last Christmas, because I loved the rich emerald colour and beautiful soft silky texture. When thinking about what to knit for this new baby, it seemed like the perfect yarn for a nearly-Christmas arrival. I have great plans for household makeover projects once I get my sewing machine back (hooray for the second trimester energy surge!), but for now it suits me to have a little project for sunny afternoons.
I am nearly done The Portrait of a Lady – I forgot how much of the book takes place after her marriage (spoiler!). Not sure what I’ll start after this is done. Bean is getting excited about books now, and loves to look through her board books, and “flip” through any paperback she can drag off of the bookshelf.
