34 weeks and I am feeling the pressure. On my sciatic nerve, on my pelvis and on my back. There is that one spot on my belly that I swear baby is going to pop right through each time he/she kicks. These are the encouraging pressures, for it is the kind that reassures me that due course is coming, and I am living my moments.
6 weeks till the due date and I am feeling the pressure. The infinite choices in car seats and strollers...Arms Reach Mini Co Sleeper or Original? Hotsling or Mei Tei? Burts Bees or California Baby? These choices seemingly important, while in the back of my mind, (and after raising 3 children with much less) I know these are all trivial. But I am pressured just the same.
8 weeks after Christmas and I am feeling the pressure. Of gifts still being knitted and made. My recipients are so patient! I just hope they know that I love them so much that I would rather send handmade late than send easy stuff early. I am finally glad to finish these mitts for a relative. They were quite cozy to model on our rare snow day in Central Texas. I'm a little sad to part with them.
Yarn: Knit Picks City Tweed, Cottontail
Needles: size 7 double pointed
But all of these pressures bring home just one thing to me...I am almost there. To finishing my Handmade Holiday goal. And to Baby.
Thanks for looking! Have a great weekend!
