Sitting & Knitting

March 11th, 2013 :: 14 comments :: permalink


Hello out there. Hopefully this explains why I’ve been absent for so long. It took two home tests and a trip to the doctor to convince us, but on January 15th, Dustin and I got the happy news that we were expecting. We were both excited, yet fully terrified. A human being was going to be here in nine months. How do we prepare for something that huge, yet tiny?

Well, before I could start my usual type-A planning, morning sickness, along with a few other first trimester symptoms, knocked me off my feet and onto the sofa. I decided to pick up knitting since it required very little movement and I could do it from the comfort of my lovely couch.

The last few months have been full of so many changes. Engagement, marriage, the loss of Dustin’s dad, and last week…hearing a new little heart beat for the first time. Every month seems to bring a new surprise and we’re trying to take it all in.

As for now, I knit.


Thank you to Nina (a local Chicago knitting shop) for helping me learn to knit.


Where am I?
