Elly is still quite comfy despite the ever-shrinking walls around her. If this extended stay is taking a toll on anybody, it’s me. I have gone through the whole spectrum of emotions:
frustration over still being pregnant (41 weeks and 1 day)
excitement over the false labor contractions getting stronger disappointment over the false labor never progressing into true labor
joy at still being able to take my daily walks with Jake
anger over the assumption that surely by now I’ve gone into labor
gratefulness to my husband for being my rock
sadness over the fact that we are still without our Elly
happiness at finishing the final project for E: embroidered quilt label
Since I have finished all my current projects for Elly (excluding the knitting projects that I can’t work on because I’m too hot just sitting around the house in a t-shirt), I decided to start a project just for me.
I had stayed away from it as I was certain that it would cause the same overheating problem that knitting did. Yet, with spinning, there is no huge blanket or shawl sitting on my lap allowing me to spin to my heart’s content.
It had been so long. I had forgotten how much I loved to spin on my Jenkins Turkish spindle.
Currently, I am finishing up a project I started months ago: brown Shetland wool blended 50/50 with silver hair from an alpaca named Buddy.
