Latest knitted gift, and other news...

I haven't been a very good blogger lately and I apologize but I have a pretty good excuse for it this time :)
Mr. B and I are expecting our first child! As it goes with some women in my condition I haven't had the easiest time with it. Not to compare myself to royalty or anything...ugh hmm, but I feel for the Duchess of Cambridge and her recent bout of dehydration and sickness. It hasn't been easy but I hope it will be over soon for her and for myself.

I am almost 17 along, here is my photo from earlier this week at the 16 week mark.
Being pregnant has taken a lot out of me, I have pretty much halted my typical crafting, only making a few things here and there. I have almost completely stopped cooking as well, fancy food just isn't a priority to me now. Oh and I can't even eat desserts, not fair!
I did manage to finally finish my mom's beautiful knitted cowl. Made from the most wonderful yarn I have ever worked with. Madeline Tosh "Pashmina" which is a splendid blend of Merino Wool, Silk and Cashmere! Hello!!
Its so squishy soft, I am in love with this yarn. It doesn't come at a cheap price, but with a 25% off coupon and only needing one skein to make this cowl it was a totally affordable luxury accessory. 

 Here I am modeling it with my new tummy showing.

I hope to get back to posting some of the other happenings around here soon. I made a new craft using those amazing wood roses! Just in time for Christmas decorating.

Happy Holidays!
