Kawano Crocheting (and Knitting) Adventures

Welcome to my blog. It is about my crocheting and my knitting, fun things I find on the internet and my family.

11 days to go apparently

The count down has begun...well it began a few weeks ago, as I thought this little one would want to arrive at 37 weeks, then at the beginning of 38 weeks. Today it is 38 weeks and 3 days, and I have lovely pain, but still not in a regular burst. If it goes as it should, I hope that tonight I will be in full on labour and pushing out the melon that is this baby.

I have been doing a little crocheting and knitting. I am trying to make a beanie for Miles and it is going slowly but I have been using this as good practice on using dpns. So far it is about 3 inches in height, so just another 2 1/2 inches to go and then I can start on the decrease. The pattern is from Charmed Knits.

I am planning on making a glove/mitten thing for History of Magic for the house cup, but at the moment, I am just not feeling the love there with the pattern and not really in the mood to do it. Luckly I am doing the Zen Quest and doing what I want to do for the cup. No, OWLs this term either. I just dont want to tackle a big project if I am not going to finish it off in 3 months. Maybe in a few terms, I will attempt an OWL!

I did manage last month to crochet a filet bunny afghan in forest green for the baby. It was huge and I am so pleased that I made it. It will fit nicely in the cot and on his bed when he moves onto a big boys bed. I still have to make an afghan/blanket for William. I was thinking about either a starghan or a log cabin style blanket just for him. Most likely in some bright colours.

Photos of some of my projects can be found on my flickr page or on ravelry.
