out of control

Clearly, my hormones are out of control, because this picture made me start crying. That's our President with his little niece. Congratulations on winning the Nobel Peace Prize, and now let's see some action, there, Mr. President.

Now that we’ve entered the month in which I’ll give birth* I have added incentive to finish up some long-lingering projects that require attention. Happily, the weather is cooperating, and the cloudy and cool days seem just right for knitting. And taking naps.

I did finish one long-overdue baby gift, and shipped it back East a little while ago. It’s the Bookworm Sweater from Miss Bea’s Rainy Day (a theme!) by Louisa Harding. I adore this entire series of small books, and love the classic styles of the patterns.

The yarn is my favorite Lion Brand Cotton-Ease, in cherry red, sadly discontinued. Something odd happened when putting in the sleeves, and I hope that it doesn’t make the sweater uncomfortable to wear. It’s a touch bunchy under the arms, but I hope the lovely cables make up for it.

*As Hubby dropped me off at work today, I asked if he thought IT would happen today. He said no. I have a feeling we are going to repeat this conversation over and over and over again.
