Quite a bit of destashing, although my knitting mojo is running low-ish, still.

These past couple of weeks, I've been mostly knitting smaller projects: hats, baby stuff, socks..

This hat is knitted in Berroco Comfort DK yarn that I had bought 2 years ago for the shop, Candy & Bagel. I hope to be able to list several of these some time..

And then this cardigan, also an improvised one, was a quick knit. I had some leftover yarn from various projects that were still good (wool/silk blend, etc).

In the beginning of this pregnancy, I bought a book called "What to knit when you're expecting." I had seen the book a couple of years ago, but I wasn't expecting and didn't know anyone else who was, so I just made a mental note of how cute the designs were.  Except for the one design (ballet tutu dress in pink mohair yarn), I can see Logan wearing all the designs in the book. I don't believe that there are designs that only certain gender can wear; I will knit and dress Logan in clothes with lace details, pinks, corals, and peaches with no hesitation. This is the only baby knits book I've purchased during this pregnancy and I will knit more from it after Logan is here.

I'm sewing more these days because I figured, knitting can be portable and I would probably be able to knit a little bit holding the baby or in my bed, but sewing would be difficult. Tracing, cutting, ironing are all a little more physically demanding than sitting pretty on the couch with yarn and needles. So! More sewing projects coming up this weekend and next week. I'm really curious about how many projects I will get to finish before Logan arrives!
