It’s like I completely forgot my blog.  I just couldn’t figure out what to write about.  Or have the energy!!  I’ve been getting the itch to work on it again though, so let’s see how it goes.

I have a few things to speak of – but I’ll spread them out for future posts!  I am 30 weeks pregnant now, I’ve been to Switzerland on vacation, I’ve finished a few baby hats, and our house is in total wreckage trying to prepare for the baby!

I did lose my knitting mojo for most of my pregnancy.  I just couldn’t bare to do it – it was like I was too tired to move my arms or wrists!

Simple hat
This was the first hat I finished. It’s the Simple Baby Hat from Susan B. Anderson’s Itty Bitty Hat book, and I used some Rowan Denim leftovers I had from my Reversible Stripes and Dots hat, also from her book! (If you love baby hats, you truly do need this book.)  I also picked up this little piggy button at a yarn shop in Switzerland, with the thoughts of adding it to a hat.  I just love little animal things.   This button makes me laugh because it’s legs are attached with some rope-like cotton and they just kind of swing in the air.

Also, I’ve been listening to podcasts a lot lately and have two I would love to recommend and share with you: The Knitmore Girls – a mother and daughter team which are great together, and CogKnitive podcast which gives a little knitting talk, a little blather, and lots of psychology.

Things that I will be blogging about (hopefully) in the days to come – Switzerland pictures, another baby hat, baby things, and house renovation!
