I'm still at home and still very pregnant, "enjoying" the 30° C (86° F) :) I'm mostly lying on my bed or on the couch since I'm very massive and my back is aching like mad. The joys of a twin-pregnancy but since most of my pregnancy went so well and the 2 crumbs are doing so fine (the hospital does not expect them to be delivered until next week...), I'm not the one to complaint....
But hey, I do have something to show (no pregnancy pics ;) ) My Hourglasssocks are done! I told the twins, that they aren't allowed to come out, until these were done. My personal hourglass so to say ;)
Pattern: Hourglass from Knitty Fall 2008
Yarn: Wollmeise Twin in We're Different (Ballerina), around 106 gramms (out of my stash)
Modifications: I knitted one less pattern repeat on the leg-sections since my legs are more curvy and leaving off one pattern repeat was the easiest. They are still "high" enough. Ma gauge was a bit looser but since my feet are big"ish", that was still o.k.
The pattern is well written and I really recommend this pattern. Maybe not for people, who don't like to purl.
Also finished a while ago: Sonnenrad (sundisc), the second baby blanket
Pattern:Round Baby blanket by Genia Planck
Yarn: G-B Wolle Bamboo Touch, a superwash bamboo-wool blend (I had frayed pieces or knots in about a third of the balls, so I don't recommend the yarn), that I dyed myself. The orange colour was supposed to be red. Oh, well.... 11.5 balls, tht are 570 Gramms. (Bought for this project this year but not in my stash anymore ;) )
Modifications: Instead of just binding off I added a border from Knitting on the edge by Nicky Epstein, the first time I used that book :)
At the moment I'm swatching for another pair of socks!
Btw. if I don't reply to your emails immediately or comment on your blog: sorry, but me and the chair in front of my desk don't go along well at the moment, so computer time is limited! Sorry!
