Half Way Point

One week of the two week wait down, one to go. I have just been living life and trying not to obsess with some things going on with my body. I even went to a party on Saturday and had a couple drinks. I have lived the two week wait so many times, sacrificing what I ate and drank all of the sake of a non-existent fetus. So, this time although I hope there is something growing in there, I'm just going to be. The party was a 50th for a family member and it was a blast!

Speaking of hope, remember when I said I got my Core Rhythms dvds? Well, H. had ran the run.for.the.cure before that and he pre-ordered the shirt that came with his registration in my size. When he gave it to me I threw it over a back of a chair without much of a glance. Later I decided to wear it to dance in. Well, on the front in large capital letters is the word HOPE. The t-shirts all have a word like Hope or Dream or Believe on them. I'm going to take it as a sign from the universe that I have reason to hope.

On Sunday, I went to my last knitting project class. I got a lot done, but only learned how to sew the shoulders together. The teacher said to email her or go to the store for help, but I went home and did a little research and kind of made up a stitch (look at me go!). Tonight I will go home and finish sewing the sides of the body up, then I will weave in all of my ends and my sweater will be complete. I will hopefully post pictures of it when it's done. I can't find any good pictures of the pattern on the web. It's a ribbed patter (knit 6 purl 2)in a chunky peruvian wool that has not been dyed. It's a charcoal gray colour.

My next project will be for ME! Here's what I'll be knitting:



Except I will be knitting this in a different charcoal gray light cotton wool.
