OT: Just when you thought you could get knitting again!
ARGH!

After getting a pretty decent start on that matinee jacket, I've had to stop! Apart from the fact I've misplaced the WIP....

The IL's have decided to *finally* move the last of their furniture out of 'our space' (long story short, we live with my IL's in a two storey house... we 'own' the downstairs part).

So now we're on the 'nursery & study move' project.... Never mind that this is the perfect excuse to buy a stack of cute as pie Classic Pooh accessories and materials to make curtains etc out of... but WHEN DO I GET TO KNIT MY BUBBA SOME STUFF??? :(

*sigh* I guess I'll have to suffice myself with creating a cute as pie nursery instead ... all my aspirations of giving bub a knitted layette to come home in seem to be constantly getting dashed.. :(

Oh well... maybe MIL will pick up her knitting needles and make me stuff (by me I mean bub)...

Oh, we find out bub's sex next monday (in Australia), so I'll come post when we find out :D

(that's why I haven't been around girls <again>, because I've been on ebay trying to find Classic Pooh bits & pieces for the nursery)... hehehe

Signing off... a 'want to be knitting' mum to be....

Glad all is well, even though you don't get to knit tiny things. You'll be knitting for the rest of this baby's life. Now you just have to find out if it'll be in pink or blue!

Glad all is well! I'm sure the nursery will be adorable! My girls had Pooh, too.

Remember the baby kept you from knitting, so it's not your fault!

You should still have time to knit a few things won't you? When is the baby due?

Hey Tia!

I sewed all my sons cloth diapers! Er, Nappies. It was so much fun! I've got pics around here somewhere, dh took the cutest pic of my son playing while his diapers dried on the line. You can also make soakers out of old wool sweaters from the used clothes shops.

I know how hard it is to prioritize what stuff to do for the baby. Can you ask someone else to make the curtains, so it doesnt cut into your knitting time? If you really really want bub to comehome in something you knit him/her, make it happen!

Keep us updated!
