comments: this was such an enjoyable project. at first i was a abit intimidated by the way the pattern was written, but when i stopped thinking about it and just started knitting it all made sense. a really quick knit too. aside from the fact that i reknit the border, it only took 3 days (or 4 depending on how you look at it) to knit. then i had to find the perfect buttons. the only down side to the owls... their price, $2.70 each x 5, plus tax.
in other news, a belly update. i feel like it realy exploded as of late and i'm way bigger than i was with jack. i know i started 10lbs heavier, but come on. it's not sooooo bad, but i'm definately looking preggo.
I'm still working on the baby blanket. it's 1/2 done and i just joined the 3rd skein of yarn. i'm having to order another skein, because i know i'll be a few yards short for the main color. I bought some contrasting yarn for the i-cord edging. i still need to find a good tutorial for that. maybe ill brave the weather tomorrow to take some photos. it's supposed to be freezing but sunny. plus mark has the camera today.
