I haven’t felt much like knitting lately. Blasphemy, I know! I’m chalking it up to pregnancy fatigue. The fatigue is going away, some days are better than others.
I started a baby blanket, but I really didn’t like the way it looked, so I frogged it. I decided to do the Baby Blocks by Ann Norling, that I’ve made four times now. It doesn’t look right either. I think it must be the yarn. I got several skeins of Caron Simply Soft Eco, it’s partially recycled plastic bottles. It just isn’t knitting up well. Maybe I’m just being picky. I don’t know.
Oh, and how’s this for something weird? The skin is peeling off my fingers where I hold my knitting needles. I think it’s because they are metal, I have a sensitivity to nickle, but it’s never bothered my hands before. Gross.
I now have two good friends who are pregnant! I wish we lived close to each other. One is in GA, the other in VA. Maybe I’ll get some inspiration to knit things for their wee ones.
