Tomorrow is baby day!

I've been spinning up a storm lately. As much as I can anyways. I think I've got half of that garbage bag left, not bad for only a few weeks. This is a picture of some of the yarn, I have about twice as much spun up (12 skeins total). This picture doesn't do it any justice. Its really black with a tiny bit of a white thrown in, it almost makes it shine.

I finally felted the purse I made when teaching the class. It turned out really cute! I used a different yarn than i normally do and it shrunk a lot more than I expected. It was made out of brown sheep nature spun, and I usually use cascade 220. Either way I really like the shape of it. I put it up at the shop as a sample.

I also started another pair of toastie tootsies for a lady that works with my mom. I'm hoping I'll finish them in the hospitial. I have to stay there for at least a few days because of the c-section. I'll see if i get any knitting time, or even if I feel like it. I can't believe it's tomorrow. It doesn't seem real yet. I guess it will kick in when I'm holding a tiny new little baby... and to be able to tell people if it is a boy of girl... I can't wait. We are all here at my parents house, and the kids are staying here over night. We have to be at the hospitial at 6 am. Surgery is at 8. We took a few pictures of us for the last time as a family of 4. this is the best one, Leah wasn't really coroperating with us. Here I am on my last day of being prego!I know I'll miss it, some of it anyways! I won't miss the bruised rib feeling. That I'll definetly say bye bye to.

My last day of babysitting was on thursday. So on friday we wanted to someting fun with the kids. We ended up going to the Above & Beyond Childrens Museum. We had a blast and ended up getting a years membership. Gabe also had his first dentist appointment and he did so well! They even let him hold "mr sucky". The dental hygenist was very impressed with his coorperation and attitude towards the whole procedure. He even got a flouride treatment, which they said they usually don't give it to kids that young. My little boy is growing up!

I'm not sure when the next time I'll be posting But I'll be sure to let you all know the news. You could check out allena's blog, maybe she'll post an update for me... I haven't asked her yet...but I'm sure she wont mind!

Lots of love and happy knitting!

Congratulations on the birth of your new daughter. The photos of her are just gorgeous, and the hat suits her quite well too. Cant wait to see your post on the new baby girl too.
