Playing the waiting game.

Someone has me up very early this morning. 
 No, it hasn't arrived but moving back and forth across my protruding belly.
I thought it best to just get up and get a bit of muesli and a cuppa into me and start the day...I have a great excuse then to go for a Nana nap this afternoon.
Anyway there are two more finishes that I have been meaning to show.

I found this kimono cardigan pattern on the looked dead easy, (just what I wanted) but it is very thick. Maybe a bit too thick for this lovely weather we are having. 
I did knit it in a 4 ply but wished I had chosen something a bit lighter.
The hat has been knitted in a bamboo/wool and is so fine and really soft.
I loved the feel of it so much that there is another little wrap around cardigan almost finished in it. 
 I better get my skates on if I want to finish it before he/she arrives.
I have given up on any more sewing at the's not the sewing, I would rather just keep my feet up now and I get too tired standing at the cutting board and ironing those HST's .
I am hoping it will be only temporary and that once baby arrives and we find our routine that bub will give me a bit of time to do the odd bit of sewing again.

Until then it will have to be a bit more of this.

To keep me away from doing this.

Happy sewing.

  4. The cardigan is lovely! Rest up these last few days/weeks before the wee one arrives. xoxo

  5. Gorgeous cardi Erin! Take advantage of all the rest you can now, you will wish you had once Junior arrives :)

  6. Oh Erin, it's so cute! Hope you are well. The waiting at the end is the worst. Rest all you can because you'll be so busy once he/she arrives!

  7. Yep feet up and enjoy the peace and quiet, because you will miss it!!!

  8. Cute knits! Rest up and good luck with everything! After a little while they seem to settle into a routine and you get a little bit of sewing time when they nap. How long that takes depends on the baby!

  9. Love the cardigan, you should indulge in some shpping the fabrics are amazing!
