I Have a Secret

So I’ve been keeping a secret from all of you. A big secret. A secret that will explain the sloppy knitting, the lack of knitting, the fewer and fewer blog posts, my inability to even manage to comment on all the blogs I barely can manage to keep up with these days…

“What secret?” you all ask. “What could possibly keep a person from knitting?!”

I’ll give you a hint.

I inherited these vintage patterns from the Skeptic’s great aunt. Got any ideas yet?

Still not sure? Here’s another….

Okay, maybe this one will really clue you in….

13 weeks

Got it now? If you guessed that there will be a new addition to our family, you are right!! 🙂 Exciting news for us,  baby number three is on his/her way!!!

This has been the most brutal first trimester I’ve ever been through. Sick to my stomach 24 hours a day and exhausted (two little boys have helped with that.) Seriously, picking up knitting needles was too much work, they seemed so darn heavy. Plus I pretty much fell asleep with the boys each night and there was no waking me up. The last two weeks I’ve started to feel more like myself and I actually should have some FO’s to show off soon, or at least some WIP’s.

I love the second trimester, it’s the time to get stuff done and have some energy to do it. Of course, my list is laughable, it’s so long, and I know completely impossible. But dreaming about baby knitting? So gratifying!

  8. I saw the title of your post and I wondered if that might be the case! Of course, I have babies on the brain for my own reasons, but YEA! How exciting. When are you due?

    I’m looking forward to hearing how the rest of the pregnancy goes, now that the secret is out! And I’m most excited to see the knitting as well.

    Congrats! And congrats on making it to trimester 2, when you will feel better! No doubt you know that morning sickness in the first trimester is considered to be a good sign for the pregnancy–but still.

  14. WOW! That’s such big news! Congratulations! Sorry to hear about the brutal first trimester, but now it’s over and you can really enjoy your pregnancy. When is the little one due to arrive?

    Oh–and now you’ll have to come up with a pseudonym for the new one!

  19. Squeeee! Okay, so I knew already, but I’m still so darned excited for you guys! Hooray for the second trimester!

    (I don’t think there are quite enough exclamation points in there, so here are a few more: !!!!!!!!!!!!) 😀

  20. Congrats!!! I had no idea!! I’m glad the worst of it should be over now.

  21. Wonderful news! A brand new Knittybaby! Hope you’re feeling much better now – and that you manage to get some rest with your two Knitty helpers running about …

  22. OMG!!! How wonderful! Congratulations to you and the whole Knitty family!!!!

  23. Lia

    Congratulations! So happy for you.

  24. Squeeeeeee! Congratulations!!! I guessed right based only on the couple of lines of text that came up on Bloglines. Get ready for a three-ring circus…but it’s great fun, too!

  25. Congratulations, that’s great! It’s not the kind of secret you can keep for too long anyway. I hope it’s a girl and if not a girl, I hope it’s a boy, either way it’s all good.

  26. Congratulations and the best of health to you! Of course, I thought you were going to tell us that you had translated the pattern from some other language . . . I really need a life outside of knitting!

  27. Oh, that’s wonderful news!!! Congratulations to the entire knitty clan 🙂

  28. Congratulations! I’m so happy for you.

  29. congratulations! I only know you vicariously through blog, but I’m so excited for you! I look forward to months of preggo posts! 🙂

  30. Woo hoo! So, when is the big day?

    My first trimester was a killer. I thought I was just going to die. I’m able to knit now, but now I’m running out of time to finish anything… 🙂
