I had my last baby dress knitting class last night. Things haven't been going well, neither for me nor our mother-to-be. I think the latter definitely has had an impact on the former.
We had to cancel the shower because mama was on bedrest and we just couldn't move the shower to her house. Instead, she had a small gathering of family. With cake. My cousin made that. Isn't she amazing?
Since then she's been in and out of the hospital and to-ing and fro-ing with regular and unexpected doctor appointments. (Obstetrician. Pulmonologist! Cardiologist!) She is back in the hospital and won't be leaving again until the babies are on this side of the womb. I'll keep you up to date.
As you can imagine, I have been very worried. I've made so many flippin' mistakes on these dresses! I've been wearing a path to the knitting shop so the instructor can help me undo what I've done. Last week in class, I was finally motoring along and suddenly, I noticed that the pattern wasn't lining up. I handed it off to the instructor. I had been knitting inside out for like 10 rows. INSIDE OUT! How could I not notice? Seriously, people, a-n-x-i-o-u-s.
Still, I did choose to knit the 12-month size. So I've got that going for me. (That one that looks pink is really coral. And the purple is more orchid.)
Edited: Well, they were born! And now I can tell you that these are my nieces born to my sister this morning, two months early. But they seem pink and in good form at this juncture. Mom and dad happy and well.
