How to spoil your firstborn (once she is born)

Knit hat from 100% cashmere from Zen Yarn Garden in colourway Peaches'n Cream. Put on when bringing her home from the hospital.

(At least that's what I plan to do!)

Or: put this adorable onesie on her, courtesy of Nadine. I fear it might be a tad big for now, but not for long, I'm sure.

I know, I know. My daughter will be recognized by all Montreal knitters who know me and my colour preferences.

Heads up down

I had a very satisfying doctor's appointment today - my bed rest is rescinded and I'm supposed to walk 45 minutes a day. I wonder if shopping for baby counts as walking?

A bit more than a week ago I had the feeling that something is happening in my now quite big belly - the movements felt different and two days ago I thought there was a foot sticking out right under my rib cage. Turns out I was right and Egg is now positioned with her head down. That's textbook timing, couldn't be better. She's lying with her back towards my back, that means I can feel her movements a lot and the chance of a limb sticking out is quite big.

Can I just say it again: No more bed rest!!

Time to fess up

Christy V. wants to know how I came up with the name "Oolong" for the socks in the current Twist collective edition.

Well, dare I say it, I did not. At the time of name giving I was very troubled with pregnancy woes, so I couldn't care less about the name of a pair of socks. Clever Julia though found exactly what I would have wished for, so Christy and you all have to thank her for the naming of the pattern and I'll be forever thankful that she thought of such a wonderful name.
