Seraphina's Shawl

Well I have finally done it, after over a year or so of looking at that shawl. I have it on my hook!
Yesterday was Mother's Day, and my husband said I could grab some yarn, we were at the Warehouse and I saw this really pretty yarn in white/pink/dark pink colours. It is called Pink Snow. It is coming along nicely. I am up to row 9, as of 12pm! I can't wait to get it finished. I am hoping that it will be finished sometime this winter. So fingers are crossed.

I am now 24wks pregnant, so only 16 more to go. The baby is kicking and rolling about so much that I feel as if someone has placed an octopus on my tummy...not a nice feeling sometimes. But it is good to know that he seems to be healthy and very active. It will be interesting to see if he arrives on the due date or earlier. I have to go for a doctors appointment sometime soon, but I dont like the doctor in my area, so I am not sure what to do...I might end up going to her for this for now and keep my eyes open for another doctor. She seems to be a bit arrogant for my liking. Not a real people person, as she spends too much time on her computer then looking at her patient! Just my feelings on her!!

My other crocheting news. I have finished a few projects last week, I managed to do a doily, a square, a little apron and a bookmark. I have a few more things that I want to make, but I just havent as I have the shawl on there at the moment, however, I do know that I will be adding a few more items onto my hooks before this week is out. ^_^

Kicking and screaming

I'm now 23 weeks along in this pregnancy, and the baby is kicking me like mad. I feel like the inside of me is getting a good beating. Only 17 weeks to go before the due date of August 31st.
My little man on the other hand, has discovered the joys of screaming. He screams, when he is happy, when he wants some and when he wants something that I have had no to! But I think that I am getting the better of the situation...as my answer is still NO! Not to his liking. He has been running about and rolling like crazy in the house. He managed to crash into the sideboard in the doorway and now has a little bruise across the bridge of his nose. After a little crying he was back at it again. This time a little careful of walls and doorways.
I also found out the mystery to my unraveling stitches...my son was laying quietly on the floor slowly pulling each stitch out of a doily I was working on. He got a bit of a shock when I asked him what he was doing, to which he replied "Oh, nothing!" and quickly pushed my doily under the chair. LOL he is a funny little fellow. I have since given up on that doily and started a new one, this one is moving along better then the last and I am really enjoying it. I hope to get it finished soon, as I want to send it to my partner at CrochetX.
Well time to head to the kitchen before picking up my hook and working on my doily. After I finish the doily, I have to start on some squares for another partner of mine from CrochetX. I already have my bookmark finished and just need to block it. But I will do that when I get the doily done.
