I wanted to post with an update. I asked Tuesday for positive thoughts/prayers on my pregnancy issues and all that was sent our way really, really helped. I was well taken care of and, with some medication, able to keep at bay the pre-term labor. I know the key component to this success was the waves of support I felt from this amazing community. I have great love and gratitude in my heart for the response my request generated from people I have yet to meet in our world…it is a statement to the caliber of people who knitblog. What a wonderful thing, that the simple act of creating can bring us into contact. I have very positive feelings regarding the progress of this pregnancy and the eventual safe delivery of the beans…knowing there are kind souls out there; mothers, grandmas, sisters, women (and maybe even a man/daddy) pulling for us makes 7 weeks seem like a truly ‘do-able’ task. Once again, thank you from the heart. I do actually have some knitting to show, for the last few days have yielding countless knitting hours.
I hesitate to call my project ‘design’ as it is so simple, rudimentary in comparison to the last post on lace. Nevertheless, I feel inordinately proud of the attempt. I have only knit as far as pictured and look forward to trying out the planned neckline. I might leave both shoulders open with buttons to give it all a little personality. Right now it is looking like I am knitting a fancy wifebeater for my babies (hope that term flies, its just what I call them), the buttons will redeem it. So, I expect some rapid progress. Until then, knit on, CALers. I love the variety and inspiration from this site.
