KNITTING WHILE PREGNANT

I honestly used to think that knitting was the perfect activity for being pregnant.  I imagined resting my hands on my belly and having a nice little shelf to work on.

Yeah, not so much.

I can't really sit up straight anymore without the baby shoving upwards into my lungs, or getting heartburn, or just feeling like I'm being scrunched to death.  I can't find a good position for knitting.

Crochet works though, since it's one-handed and I can kinda do it in a Cleopatra side-lying pose.  So when I have the energy for anything, it's mostly been crochet.

I wanted to make a pig.  I found the perfect cute pattern.  I started said pig and discovered he was gonna be about as big as a tennis ball.  Cute, but not really what I envisioned for my child to cuddle.  I want to try to size him up with some really fat yarn and see if that works.



I also managed to finally finish some lapghans I started ages ago for the VA hospital.  My crafting group teased me because every week I would show up, not having made any progress since the week before.  Slow going, but they're done, and just in time.



The second one is a lovely pattern found here.

I've also worked on some gifts for other people, but those can't be revealed until later...
