Yarn Along

I thought I'd check in by way of a short Yarn Along post. Baby's estimated due date came and went yesterday, so now we wait.  Not like I haven't been waiting (and only waiting) for the past week or so for him to get here.

To make this boring time even more dull (I'm not exaggerating), I've picked up my Cupcake Mittens again, which I started in February 2011.  (Ravelry is such a great resource, isn't it? I didn't used to know how precisely old all my WIPs were...)  I'm knitting the thumbs and wouldn't mind it if baby came before all the ends are woven in.  Hint, hint, Baby.  The good news is I have a plan to avoid weaving in all 90+ ends in each mitten.  Stay tuned.

Apologies for the lame cell phone picture -- my real camera is packed in my hospital bag.  And so is my current book, so here are my husband's books.  They're apparently very good if you're into special forces/secret ops type reads. 

I just finished and loved The Star Garden, the third in the Sarah Agnes Prine series set in the Arizona Territory in the late 1800s/early 1900s.  They're the Best. Books. Ever. and I plan to own the series in hardcover someday soon.  I already can't wait to read them again, even though the story is still so fresh in my mind.

Okay, back to waiting!  Wish me luck!


  1. Your mittens are gorgeous! I hope you don't have much more waiting and I can't wait too see some baby pics :)

  2. Hope you don't have to wait too long!! See what you mean about avoiding all the ends to be woven in, yikes. Hubby would like your hubby's books, men and special ops eh! Sending lots of joyful birthing vibes your way x

  3. Thanks for the book title...I absolutely love books set in that time period. I'm going to look for that series. And the mittens - stunning!

  4. Good luck!

    And I agree - thanks for mentioning the books. I read the first one but didn't realize there were 2 more...

  5. wow, those mittens looks great, is the pattern difficult to follow? Would love to hear your plan to avoid sewing in ends!
    Hope baby comes soon.

  6. Hope the baby comes soon! Congratulations.

  7. Lovely knitting! My kids have all been about 2 (+/- a few days) weeks late so I understand where you are right now! Good luck and lots of prayers for your upcoming birth! This week I'm sharing a Sunday Sweater test knit. :)

  8. Absolutely beautiful mittens! Great color choices! Hang in there these last few days! My four were all 7-10 days late, and it is so hard to endure those last days, but you'll be holding that sweet babe soon!
