Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

Being pregnant everything seems to turn to babies. Especially once the kid makes itself known by turning your stomach into some sort of side show. Huge monster of a thing sticking way out in front, wriggling and writhing as if an alien is in there trying to get out.
It seems as though I forget exactly how big this belly is and I whack it into something all the time. M walks too close to me at times and inevitably will ask something, thereby making sure she gets knocked in the head with her sister when I turn to answer her. Ok, so that's kind of funny. Almost as funny as the time M put her head on the belly to see if she could hear Princess K and got kicked, HARD.
It's not just me thinking about babies though, my friends are too.
This cute little sweater was made using the Little Sister Sweater pattern and Brown Sheep worsted. The buttons (which I couldn't get a good photo of) are special glass buttons. It was made especially for Princess K by my friend Sue. Can you believe this is Sue's first sweater? Thank you Sue!!! You are awesome! Princess K will be warm all winter in this.
Not to be outdone on the gift thing, my Mom brought home the cutest onesie last week. Actually, Mom brings home lots of gifts but I thought this one really needed to be mentioned since it fits our family so well. This was the design on it:
I scream, you scream, we all scream for Ice Cream.
Looking at this, I now want some ice cream. I haven't even had breakfast yet. Ice cream could be breakfast right?
I also finished 2 baby sweaters over the weekend.
I can only show you one though. You'll just have to trust me that I did finish 2.
Pattern: Reynolds #82244
Yarn: Reynolds Blossom
This sweater was a fun, easy knit. I will be making another one of these. It's knit all in one piece and then you seam the sides and underarms. This yarn easily hides any edges and it doesn't curl, so there really is very little finishing. If I used another yarn I would probably at least crochet around the edges.
Angie a fellow Mainer and pregnant lady, made the same sweater using a self striping yarn. HERE Isn't it cute? I think I need to pick up some of that stuff for the next one.
The baby gear continues.
Faith passed along some great info about baby slings and I'm passing them on to you.
Material: From my immense stash.
The rings: Nestmom, (shipped the same day and received within 2 days)
DIY how to:Jan Andrea.
Her directions are the best. I love how this sling came out! It was ridiculously fast too. I hated the sling I had with Princess M so I'm looking forward to having one that will be a lot more comfy and usable. I really wanted one in skull print but I have a limited amount of that stuff in my stash. I figured I'll make a second one as soon as I know if I need to change any design details on this one.
