Hello World

Well I haven't been blogging lately, neither here nor LJ. Indeed, I haven't been doing much of anything, other than incubating a bean. Yes, in case you didn't know from other places on the interwebs, tomorrow I will be 22 weeks pregnant. Its been a long journey to get here, and I am finally accepting that there might be a real live baby at the end of it all. Various problems + my diabetes have made this a rather stressful adventure, but the 20 week scan was all good, and little ninja-bean appears to be a boy. Which kind of sucks as I don't like boys names and had a sizeable list of lovely girls names! But quite frankly what sex it is has been the least of my worries!

Knitting has most definitely taken a back seat, and dying even more so (indeed, my best dying pan is on long term loan to a friend). I've been too brain dead and tired to do anything other than flump when I get home from work.

I have recently picked up something I started for a friend's bump (I won't link to it yet as I think this gets picked up by Buzz). The pattern is so shockingly written it really is evil, but I want to get it finished to a) find out if my bodging was successful and b) it will be so cute and perfect for the recipient that it just has to be finished. I've not knit anything for my own bean, all the knitting I touch seems to break. Even a simple cowl I started at 12 weeks, thinking it would take my mind off things I have messed up and can't face ripping back.

So yes, its been a knitting disaster area lately, but hopefully I'm getting back into it. Who knows, I may even be able to knit something for bean before he arrives and chaos descends!
