Hello! Happy Fall!
So much is happening! Er, I should maybe say “not happening”. Though, I tried. Kind of. I thought that once I was expecting my own child I would be so inspired to knit that the projects would just cascade off my needles. I didn’t know that I would be so tired and that all non-essential activities would be off the table. I slept, and I went to work. My wonderful man made me dinner before I crawled into bed at 7:00 pm, and that is how I spent the first 3 months of my pregnancy. Now that I have been more awake for the last two months I have been able to do a little more than just exist.
Instead of starting a bootie pattern, or a baby sweater, I was somehow more inspired to knit decor pumpkins. My motivation to knit is usually based around a desire to make a hand made item that would replace something normally bought at a store. At the very least, a bit useful. Knitting decorations seems so unlike me, but I’m having fun and that’s just as valuable as usefulness. I found a free stuffed pumpkin pattern on Pinterest and off I went. It felt so festive to be at home knitting pumpkins this weekend. Working on seasonal crafts always reminds me of my own mother too.
UPDATE: Knit City totally inspired me, and I have a baby knit on the way!
