A couple of days ago I finished sewing up a new top for myself, which despite not being perfect, I love. I bought the fabric a little while ago from Minerva Crafts and have been waiting for inspiration to strike.
I had a little bit of trouble squeezing the pieces out of just 1m of fabric, but despite so very nearly cutting the back so the skulls were all upside down I did just about do it. The pattern is Burda 7104 and yes, as the more eagle eyed among you will notice, it is a maternity pattern. For pregnant ladies. Just like me! We’ve been sitting on this news for quite a while now, it took a really long time to schedule our first ultrasound and we didn’t want to announce anything until we’d had it. I’m now 17 weeks and the baby is due 11th January. The sonographer was pretty sure it’s another girl but we’re going to get that double checked at our next scan. So I finally feel like I can get excited now that I know that all is well and now that I can actually tell the world. This will mean that I will need to overhaul my knitting queue, a January baby is going to need lots of handknits so I’d better get cracking!
