- MIA, can knit again
Hi all, I've been really MIA.

Since I got pregnant I haven't been able to knit. I was have carpal tunnel-esque symptoms. Dr. said it was due to swelling, and was common, although apparently I got it early.

For the past two weeks I haven't had that problem, and I can finally knit. The first time in about 4 1/2 months.

Today I'm 5 1/2 months, so I have a little time to make something for the baby, even if it's just booties. Because I've got a ton of stuff to do, but I want to make something.

I haven't been here, cause I missed knitting so much, it was kind of torturous to see knit/yarn talk and not be able to participate.

I'm glad to hear you are able to enjoy your knitting hobby again. You should have plenty of time to knit some things for the baby unless you have kids at home already, that will slow you down. Take it easy and show us what you make.

Welcome back Nice to hear you can knit again. I'm pregnant too, roughly as far along as you are (I'm counting in weeks not months and my brain can't compute at the moment!)

A nice quick pattern I have enjoyed making is 'Grandmother's Favorite Baby Bib' --> http://nekkidknitter.blogspot.com/20...tching-up.html

I think I'll be making a few of those

I have been knitting baby sweaters since February when we first started thinking about getting pregnant. It took us about 4 months before it acually happened, so there are all sorts of things waiting patiently in a drawer. I am only 13 1/2 weeks along so still don't know what we are having but I have all the bases covered. Hopefully I will be able to knit all the way through.
Good Luck to you hopefully you will be able to continue to knit. Baby stuff knits up very quickly so you should be able to have a few things done in time. And don't forget, they grow fast so you can knit after you have the baby.

Glad to see you here. I was wondering about you. Do you know it the baby is a boy or a girl yet??
