ONE week to go!!

Yes, I am due next Thursday, so surely it can't be too far away till the big day. Am looking forwards to it, mostly because I want to meet my new baby and see if he/she is a boy/girl, but also because I just don't want to be pregnant anymore. Have done that, am over it, never...ever...ever... again thankyou very much!!!!

But am trying to knit as fast as I can on my Hearts and Stars Baby Blanket (by Zoe Mellor in Adorable Knits). To no avail really though, as each row has 167 stitches it takes me awhile anyway, but then I have to stop every 20 stitches or so and get my dear hubby to rub my fingers because my carpal tunnel is terrible. So much pain.....

Anyway I am really enjoying (minus the pain) knitting this, I like the seed stitches and the slightly more concentration it takes to read a chart. I am knitting this in Rowan Handknit Cotton, in a lilac colour 305 (had very little choice in colours believe me) I purchased from Webs.

They were quite a good store, very expensive postage, but the 20% discount when I spent over $60 made up for that. It got here quickly too.

Here's the pic of the yarn...

Ok, happy knitting, please stay tuned for baby pics....(eventually)...

Roza aka Hospital Socks

I've finished my Roza's socks, I do quite like them. Although I haven't worn them yet, I'm saving them to take to hospital with me, so when the baby is born and I am sore..sore..sore I'll have snuggly feet at least :)

They are made with Lorna's Laces, Shepherd Sock yarn in colour Baby Stripe, which Seany bought for me last birthday, picked the colour out himself too....ahhhh!!!!

Ok, so here they are:
Sort of wish I had fantastic photography skills to show my knitting to its best. Because they are actually quite pretty.
