I’m two repeats shy of the heel flap on sock number two! This one is going much faster than the first since I’ve now memorized the lace pattern. That, and my crafting deadline is fast approaching and there are several more things I’d love to knit in the next few weeks. Oh, and the housework is slowly being abandoned due to my rather severe back and sciatic pain. It has me laid up and the only thing that can be done for it is rest and compresses, unfortunately. It’s given me a bit more knitting time, though. I’m just glad I live too far away for “pop in” visitors. The state of my house and yard is pretty embarrassing right now!
As for today’s second WiP… Ella and I had another check up. Two doctor visits (a Perinatalogist and regular OBGYN) a week is pretty tiresome, but today was the all important “growth check”. At 2 days shy of 36 weeks, she weighs in at 4lbs 12oz (give or take 15% since ultrasounds aren’t entirely accurate). She’s measuring and weighing in at what a “normal” 33 week baby would. She gained a little over a pound in the last 2 weeks, and that seemed to make the Perinatalogist quite happy.
It’s not like her big sister is a bruiser, either. At 17 months old, Hannah is only 22lbs. Goodness, my cousin’s infant son is right on her tail and he isn’t even 6 months old, yet. I just make tiny babies, apparently, and I’m certainly not going to complain about that! ;)
