Yarn Along combo day

I'm yarning along again this week with Ginny and the crew at Small Things.  But this week for something new I am combining my yarn along post with a post for the Knitting Blog Week.  Plus I have some exciting news to share... As I am sure many of you have noticed if you've been reading my yarn along posts I have been knitting a lot of baby items these days.  And while yes it is true that I have many, many friends who are pregnant and getting hand knits for their babies some of those baby items have been knit for the newest addition to our family we are expecting in September!  Yes, despite my vows that I would never again be 8 months pregnant is August we are expecting our third little bean the day before James' birthday- here's hoping they don't have to share! So really I have been reading but I wasn't quite ready to share the pregnancy news yet so it was hard to share news about reading pregnancy books!  I've just started this book but I'm going to have to read it quickly since I got it through interlibrary loan.  So far I like what I am reading though. I would really like this to be a very healthy pregnancy that ends in a natural labor and delivery without induction so I am practicing mind over matter.   I also ant to try hypnobirthing this time around so I am exploring the ideas of meditation during pregnancy to aid in that.  Next on my list are some books about hypnobrithing and the mother-baby connections so we'll see how it goes.

As for my knitting I am making a Fae Folk Hat from Carina's Spencer pattern for a diva swap.  I've been much more interested in knitting than sewing these days so I am trading some knitting for some diapers.  Works for me!  This is for a little girl about the same age as James made with malabrigo merino worsted in dusty rose with natural trim.  I'm also going to make some fingerless mitts to go with the hat, but I seriously need to get my tushie in gear seeing as I am supposed to be sending these by April 30th!


And for today's photography challenge I have a photo of all my knitting for this baby so far- a rainbow of knitting for our rainbow baby. I know it isn't the greatest photo ever but it has special meaning to me!

Introducing the newest Baby Linnenbringer...

Congrats lady! I can fully appreciate not wanting to be 8 months pregnant in August (though my 8 months was in October)...summer while pregnant is horrible! At least the AC was working well...too bad I spent most of my time outside with 7 year olds for most of the summer. Hrm.

I also love all the rainbow knits :)
