L's room...

Started these Kanoko pants for L in Trendsetters Merino VI. The Ravelry link to the pattern is HERE.

Her furniture came, so here are some pics of her room.

Almost ready for Little L

Poncho is done, and I didn't post the Whirligig.

The pattern is from the book Knit Baby Blankets by Bev Galeskas. Here's the Ravelry LINK.

For mine I changed the color scheme, used a size 5 needle and Vintage by Berroco.

The yarn for the Whirligig by Stephanie Japel is called Let's Twist by Ellyn Cooper. Later this summer Mom, Dad, Sis, and I are hopefully going to take a drive to Mystic Conn. pretty much for me just to pig out on this woman's yarn. It is amazing. I wish she'd sell online b/c I love her yarns.

Here's the Ravelry LINK to the pattern info (pattern for in Interweave Weekend 2009) and the LINK for the yarn info.

So...the belly...

Once upon a time, when L was as tiny as a grape in there I looked like this. This shot is from a trip to the Martha Stewart show. Mom has more pics here. I included the bottom of my face so you can see what it looks like when I'm semi normal.

Now she's bigger than a ruler and tumbling most likely over three pounds and I look a bit different. The first pic is from our quick trip to the Met Museum in NYC last weekend.

And you can see the difference in my face here. My kid is huge. And I really do look different. It's very startling b/c I feel like just yesterday I took the pregnancy test.

Finally, if you need a movie night I highly recommend Inception.

The Money Pit

Construction has been the order of the day at the GrimmWitch home. In preparation for little L's arrival in September we wanted to break down the wall between the dining room and the living room.

Shot from the living room:
before (this was a shot with the previous owner's stuff):


Shot from the kitchen/dining room


That project is pretty much done now, new pics to come.

My mom has new pics on her blog already.

Now the contractor is working on the bathroom. It still looks like this, minus the tub...

Every day my entire house is covered in a new layer of dust and crap. Poor mom has to help me clean constantly. Had a few friends over for the 4th and my family pitched in to help clean.

Mom also bought L a ton of stuff for her room. Here's the bedding we got.

The room was yellow when we moved in, Mom and my sister, Pepper, painted the room sea foam.This color looks amazing with the bedding and these wonderful letters I ordered from Pint Sized Designs on etsy. Here's one letter.

I love them!!!

On the knitting front I've done a bit more with the poncho. I adore the pattern. It's nice and easy, but looks great.

I'm also working on a Baby Surprise for L out of a chunky Zauberball.

Only about 11 more weeks until the due date!
