surprise, baby

No, no: there's no news yet. The big day draws ever closer… reaching my feet to fasten sandals isn’t easy when I’ve got to reach around a basketball in my lap. And sadly, it’s still sandal weather here in Portland on this first day of autumn. The temperature will be above 90 degrees today, and while there’s no humidity to speak of and a gentle breeze blowing, I am not amused. It’s not supposed to be this hot here at the end of September.

Regardless of the heat (which hasn't been bad all September), I did finish a little Baby Surprise Jacket for the little one. It’s made out of Regia sock yarn, so it should be ready for repeated washing in the machine. I’m quite happy with the colors, and imagine she’ll look great in it.

I’ve got a lot of other projects going on that I’d like to finish up before she arrives* but with only three weeks to go, I’m not sure that’s going to happen! There are a couple more things that I have finished, and a bunch of yarn purchased that needs a photo shoot… all of which will appear in due time.

*While typing that, I got a kick in my left arm, as if to say, “Ha! You, finish four projects in three weeks? As if!” Guess she knows me pretty well already.
