Pasha and the freakishly large pregnant belly


Sounds like the name of a story in a book of fables, doesn't it? Pasha is actually just the name of this hat I finished knitting late last night. I'm quite proud of how it turned out, actually fitting my head and my first lacework with no mistakes in it. I used my favorite yarn of the moment again, Madeline Tosh Pashmina, in graphite. This one will be getting lots of wear. 
Isn't that fabric it's sitting on gorgeous? It's a Nani Iro cotton/linen print that is currently being chopped up and made into a clutch (the market bags just aren't looking too sexy for toting around to dinners out).

And please forgive the terrible self-portrait-in-the-bathroom, but here is me and my giant growing belly. At only 15 and a half weeks, I realize this is REALLY big. I'm already getting tired of hearing "are you sure there's not twins in there?" quips. Nope, only one. One big baby, that hopefully won't top ten pounds at birth!


My other big baby is in bed so I'm off now to continue my super sewing blitz - but check back Friday for a GIVEAWAY!!!

  4. Love your hat, and you look lovely! Ignore those crazy peeps, who for some reason are always the rudest to pregnant people... I wonder why that is?

  11. When will people learn that the only appropriate thing to say to a pregnant woman is "You look great!" Anything else is just not appreciated.

    Maybe I'm a little more sensitive to this as I'm 13 1/2 weeks pregnant myself! :)

    And the hat looks great!

  14. The hat is lovely as is your cowl - mine isn't done yet!! Um, you are reminding of my sister who had people saying what you are hearing about her belly (pregnancy #1, though)!! She discovered twins about 2 weeks before her twins were born (3 weeks early)!! So, have your technician look carefully!!! You look great, by the way! (I had twins my second pregnancy - and my belly looked like that at 12 weeks.....
