An FO and a WIP

Well I certainly didn't expect it to take this long to update my blog! An FO is always a good reason to blog, and since I left you with my big mess of a mistake while on vacation, I thought it would be good to rectify the situation with a beautiful (if I do say so myself) finished sweater.

I present to you my Drops 103-1 Jacket made with The Fibre Company Road to China yarn in colorway "Jade". Very fitting for the Summer Olympics in Beijing, despite my pathetic finish.

Now you may notice that the front of the sweater seems a bit higher than the rest. I swear to you all is good with the sweater. Just look a little closer at the belly.

Baby number 2 is on the way! I found out in August that I was pregnant and spent September quite nauseous. (That hardly describes it - but trust me it wasn't pretty and I'll spare you the details.) So now do you forgive me for not having written sooner? I'm trying to blog more often and read blogs again, but had a little hiccup with the whole "whoops, I'm knocked up!" thing.

If you're going to be in Rhinebeck this coming weekend, drop me a comment. I will definitely be there on Saturday. Now if you'll excuse me, I am long overdue in setting my bloglines to my new computer. So much reading to catch up on!

I absolutely luv that sweater, and the color is to die for. That color green goes well with chocolate brown.

Congrats again on the new WIP.

Congratulations! You are a beautiful mama, indeed. I was squinting at the sweater, wondering what was wrong, and then I realized it was the tummy underneath! How exciting. I wish you a happy and healthy pregnancy.

The sweater looks gorgeous, and is the perfect style/cut to show up that baby bump. I will see you at Rhinebeck. Congratulations again, and I hope you are in great health for the rest of the pregnancy. Does Cashew know there's a little sibling in there?

Holy hormones, Batman! Way to go--my boys are 20 months apart and I'm so happy they're close in age. But, but...that sweater is gorgeous AND you've got the slimmest hips of any prego around. Hmm...let's see those ankles! ;)
