Creepiest Show Ever

The Second Time Around

At the end of this week I will be 12 weeks into my second pregnancy. It is funny how different things are this time around. With Chase I felt pregnant FOREVER and I was so eager for him to come. This time at 12 weeks I am just telling people at work I am pregnant and still enjoying adjusting to the idea of 2. Life is so busy when you already have 1 kiddo to run after that time just flies by!

Luckily I have been feeling fairly good - just really tired - which has led to a lot of TV / movie watching and reading. Right now I am reading Beautiful Creatures - it's ok so far but hopefully it picks up a bit.

When I get my sewing mojo back I want to try this: http://www.ohfransson.com/oh_fransson/2012/03/stamp-collection-making-the-block-.html

Lovely Ladies

We were playing songs on Spotify and dancing along to them and we started playing a Carrie Underwood song and Chase stopped dancing, leaned closer to the computer, and said "Ooooooooh pretty picture!!!"

Baby "Bella" Mittens

I knit these cute "Bella" baby mittens from this pattern:


I did add a ribbed cuff at the bottom so that they looked more finished and I skipped row 22 so they weren't "pointed" at the end.

It is a really quick easy pattern. The only changes I would make next time are that I would use smaller needles for the ribbed cuff to make it tighter and I would use a color that showed of the cables a bit better.

Granny Squares

I am typically not a fan of Granny Square blankets but lately I have been intrigued by the idea...

I won this adorable pattern, yarn, and bag from the Yarniad and I cast on today - so fun.

Happy New Year!

So here we are once again starting a new year. Typically I have reflections about the previous year and goals for the next year. Oddly this time around it all snuck up on me and I find myself without much to say about what I want 2013 to look like. Maybe this year I am just satisfied with how things are for the moment.

I hope this year's fresh start is the beginning of a great year for everyone out there!
