a problem with monogamy

... of the knitty variety that is. Either I have to commit to one project or ...

... I need to make myself a bigger knitting bag.

On the sticks at the moment we have a cherry red Milo vest for Leo

the Striped Cotton Cowl for moi

and the super easy baby blanket which was given to me by my bestie Antonia as a most excellent baby gift.

And then last night Luca said, "Mummy you have a scarf and I don't and that's not fair". Ouch. Far be it from me to leave the poor middle child's neck all naked! Looks like project number four will be cast on imminently.

For more creative spaces head over here.

p.s A massive THANK YOU for all the beautiful comments on the arrival of our Leo. He is two weeks old today and apart from having a cold (a gift from his brother and sister), he is doing very well indeed.

... decided to make his entry into the world last Thursday afternoon thankfully weighing a full kilo less than his older brother.

He's a hungry little fellow though and so the last few days have mainly seen me camping out on the couch using every cushion and pillow in the house in some effort to get comfortable.

But we're all good and so very glad he's here ... finally!

From the looks of this tummy (photo taken last week I might add) ...

39 weeks

... you'd have to think this baby is not far away right?

In the meantime there has been much crazed nesting involving moving large pieces of furniture, vacuuming in strange places, washing and folding all those teeny tiny clothes ...


... and a bit of decorating with a beautiful doll quilt I received from Lorraine in the Down Under Doll Quilt Swap.

Also this weekend while packing up the fabric scraps left over from the Grellow Quilt I figured I might as well whip up a cushion cover. As you do.

And now I wonder if since all this is done, this little fellow might decide to make his entry into the world. Soon.
