When I was in Seattle, I got some Lamb's Pride yarn for making baby girl's Christmas stocking. I have started work on that, and it will be my baseline project when I'm not swatching for my next potential design. I think I'd like to make a shawl, and since gauge doesn't much matter, all I have to do is find a few motifs I really like that fit together and figure out how to make a triangle out of them. The only think is I can really only swatch one motif a day with the RSI, which makes for some slow going as I am trying to decide what will work with the laceweight yarn. I've discovered that too many yarnovers don't typically look too good at such a large gauge, so lesson learned. I'd also really like to make a sweater, but I'm going to need to do a lot more research and figure out what type of sweater to make.
I've also decided that I need a haircut. It is almost all the same length now, and just past my shoulders. It doesn't really get any longer than that because it is either the end of the growth cycle for the hair or the ends get so brittle they break once they get to that point. It doesn't really matter which it is, because it is not very flattering at this length. So I'll probably go get a haircut pick me up sometime next week, too. Since I usually only cut my hair about once every 4-6 months, this is about normal schedule for me. I'm always happy to have chopped it all off, so I hope that follows for this one as well. As you can see below, it looks kind of blah.
Based on my average posting frequency, I guess we'll have to see if the next post will have a picture of baby girl or not. We'll have to see how much longer the doctors think she should be in utero. I do believe we could fill a photo album with her ultrasound pictures, but I am looking forward to seeing her with my own eyes.
