Now that I know how to resize my images ;) here are just a few things I have been up to whilst growing a baby and managing a 2yr old... (no tantrums yet today! hooray!)
The first are of all the christmas presents I knitted- a blizzard of scarves :D
the white one was the "man" scarf up close; very fun to knit!

Yes. More...
These are finished baby blankie and a sweater for my dd! She just loves her sweater! She calls it "yarn"...
Are you all sick of me yet? :lol:

Thanks quietheart- it was a lot of work!
I probably should have clarified, those scarves were for this past christmas. And, thankfully, they are being put to good use by their new owners. And the blankie was for my dear friend who had a baby boy in mid Jan. So, once again I am sad to report, I haven't knit anything for our new arrival due in six weeks! But, there is light at the end of the tunnel- once I finish the layette set on my kneedles for my brothers baby, iam free to knit for this little one

Ingrid- thank you so much!
You were such a BIG help when I was trying to knit my dd sweater, I had a question on how to cast on mid-garment and thanks to your speedy reply, I am on my 4th of said sweater!!
Thanks a TON! :happydance:

Everything is beautiful!
I especially like the reversible pattern in the "man" scarf.

Great job! I especially love the sweater for your daughter. I have yarn sitting here waiting for a pattern that I really like to knit something for my daughter. I am thinking not something quite as pretty as yours. She is more of a tomboyish type of girl. ;) That "man" scarf is really great as well! Love it.

Wow, super stuff. What a lot of scarves! I agree, that sweater is just beautiful. Weird, I keep seeing baby or children sweaters that I want for me! I think that would look pretty on an adult. Call me crazy.... but....

I never get sick of seeing stuff posted! I'm working on a boring afghan and this forum keeps me sane until I finish.

I loved everything, especially the ribbon-y looking multicolor scarf.

:notworthy: I'm in awe of your ability to create beautiful things while managing a 2 yr old and being moments away from a second child. My two kids (now 13 and 15) are about the same age difference as yours will be. When I was in the stage you are now, I think I was just collapsed on the couch like a wet noodle when I had a free moment!

Best wishes for a happy pregnancy and easy delivery!

Love everything! What kind of yarn did you use for the blanket? It's very pretty! :thumbsup:
