Baby Project #3


Easy garter stitch cuff to cuff baby sweater in red. One arm is done, stitches for the front are on a holder and I'm making my way across the back. I chose this pattern so that I could avoid piecing together arms and fronts and such. I guess from here I can only go up to more interesting patterns. I won't be in the same boat as my bib. Which, I should probably knit a couple more of those.

Now red is a good uni-sex color. I love red. I have red all over the house - walls, couch, blankets, etc. It's our "color" for our wedding and since the wedding will be at our house it will already have red touches everywhere. Bought a book yesterday at B&N - Offbeat Bride. It's the closest reference/idea book I could find that seemed appropriate for our non-traditional wedding. Non-traditional in the sense that we've stripped it of all the pomp and circumstance - that's just not our style.

In Baby news: I've been feeling the baby move! I'd say it feels like a flutter but not quite. More like lightly tapping a few keys on a piano. I know it's early for a first-time mom but I don't doubt that it's the baby I'm feeling. Certainly not like anything else I've felt before.

Additional Baby news: I went shopping at Motherhood Maternity last night. A friend and I ravaged the store. Actually she did the ravaging while I waited in the dressing room with the faux bump strapped to my waist. We had a LOT of fun. Giggling, laughing and making fun of most of the clothes. For $100 I ended up with 3 ribbed tanks (workout wear), black work capris, black fancy top for a possible occasion, 1 work top WITHOUT ties, and a belly band so I can wear my non-maternity clothes for a while longer. Everything was on sale. I plan on checking out Old Navy's maternity wear for more work, workout and casual clothes. Thankfully work is mostly casual anyway.

"Red oh red,
The taste of blood
On lips of wine"
