Knitter and New Mum

A keen knitter and stay at home mum of Keira my little angel. I spend my days looking after her, shopping for her, cleaning up after her and in between all of that knitting and cooking and looking after my lovely husband Justin.

Keira Emilie

She's here! Keira Emilie arrived 5.56pm Friday weighing 8lbs10oz, 54cm long with a head size of 37cm. C/section was scary as needed 2 spinals and lost 1litre of blood but was up and about next morning and feeling great today (am still on painkillers so let's see how I go tmrw!)

She is a big girl and good feeder and I am a little less scared of her and amazed at the amount of love we have for someone so little!

Knitting is on hold but I got the biggest box of handknitted jumpers, cardigans, hats, booties, mittens by my nana which is just lovely and I can't stop looking through!

Will be back later in the week!

4 hours to go

Well, I've had my last meal for a day, a nice blueberry muffin and bottle of water. It was a bit hectic as were at the mall when I realised it was nearly 10.30 ahhhh so I ate and drank quickly!

Its been a good start to the day, I lost my plug this morning (but they say this can happen up to 2 weeks early) the wool arrived and I had to tell the delivery guy what great timing as I'm off to hospital fact I wanted to tell everyone today is the day!!!!! hubby also gave me a quick pedicure, his first and he made me laugh by pretending to be a girl asking me did I know that branjelina is overdue too and having her baby in namibia! oh it made me laugh!

I also finished a little hot pink beanie in jaeger baby merino, ohhhh its so soft and the pattern is from baby cashmerino 2. I still have 1 1/2 balls of wool left so might make up a few more since I only started yesterday on it.

i've also started the cowl neck sweater in jo sharp KNIT in elderberry this morning , that alpaca kid lustre is beautiful and wool shack seemed to have the best price on it! I figure if I'm bumped back tonight I can knit happily away!

so watch out tmrw for a post of my lovely bub - we are still finalising middle name but am sure will have it by tonight

Tomorrow, tomorrow.....

Well I can't believe the big day is tmrw. I went to the hospital yesterday to have the midwives ask how big was my husband as this baby feels big for my size and no wonder its not coming down and she's just floating around in there!!!!!!! I think she is like her dad because she is so relaxed with no need to rush out.

I managed a swim this morning, am going to try and get hair cut, finish the last sleeve on the JET jacket and check the post for my wool today !!!!! My nana has been up till 1am finishing her knitting for the baby so I think I might need a whole blog dedicated to my litle one and her lovely clothes!!!!!

Oh and I am so addicted to blogging and reading everyone else's! there is some amazing talent out there and I take lots of inspiration from some of you and hope I can keep up my knitting when bubs arrives!

4 days overdue (or 2 sleeps to go)

Well only 2 sleeps to go and hope they pass quickly! In the meantime the sleeves are coming along and hope to finish them by tmrw night in between finalising uni assignments, cleaning the house and getting ready.

All the pregnancy books say I should be making stews and casseroles for my darling husband but he is looking forward to some take-away so there is no need!

Also looking forward to my jo sharp wool which should arrive tmrw just in time to take to hospital!

3 days overdue

Well, its official! I go to hospital this friday for the c-section as bubs is too high to be induced - I think she has been enjoying my famous brownies too much! Here is a picture of me this morning before our trip to the dr.

I've put in a photo (I must work on my layout!) of the jumper I'm doing, I've never done Patons patterns until now and am finding different to the english patterns I am used to. Also the 2 little cute kimono tops are just adorable that I made last year but just have to finish making up and can't wait for bubs to wear!!! They are from one of Erika Knight's books.

well 3 sleeps to go!

2 days overdue

Well my first post and a quick introduction!
That's me and my husband at our wedding back in 2004! We are now waiting for for our first baby to arrive and she's taking her time. We are back to the dr tmrw and will have a date fixed in!

To keep myself busy yesterday I did some baking and retrieved all of my wool and projects on the go - there were 7 WIP, 4 baby cardigans to make up, 1 ladies jumper to make up and I have a lovely jacket in Patons JET to finish. I also sorted out all my wool into 1 very large container and can't believe how much there was! lots of debbie bliss, some rowan, jaeger and aussie wools and lots of projects to start!!!!

Despite all this wool I just ordered some new wool today for the new Jo Sharp knit magazine which is great! I figure if baby isn't coming soon I can do some major knitting!
