I am in serious nesting mode. Only 10 more weeks until Stormy shows up! Now, while other mamas might use this time for childproofing or spring cleaning, I am focused on the essentials--creating as many handmade baby items as I can. I made a list of a few must-have items and am churning them out at top speed. I've become a soaker-making machine. I've nearly finished a seaweed green one made from some Manos del Uruguay Classica that's been in my stash far too long.
Two Paths Diverged at the Wood Concert, which Pete participated in. Knitting definitely calmed me down when he broke out the sheet music and drove with his pinkies.
Loop, a pristine yarn store right next to Spool, a little fabric shop. Needless to say, I used Stormy as an excuse to enhance the fabric/fiber stashes. I found some beautiful fabric to make a pair of Quick-Change Trousers from Anna Maria Horner's book Handmade Beginnings,
Simple Sewing for Baby. I've been poring over both of those books ever since I got them.
Noro Kureyon for a striped soaker at Loop. Best of all, I got a discount--$5 off!
