I had assumed early on in pregnancy that my baggy t-shirts and elastic waistbands would last me through the first several months of pregnancy. A month ago, Dan finally talked me into buying myself maternity pants. I bought 1 pair, since I was still convinced that I wouldn’t really need them until the last 2 – maybe 3 – months of the pregnancy.
OK. I admit it; I was wrong. Thankfully, my SIL had no such delusions. This weekend, she sent Dan home with 3 new maternity shirts, including the one I’m wearing above. Finally, I can stop trying to stuff myself into my old clothes and start embracing this new look of mine.
Though I did start on the pink dress for Elizabeth this weekend, I am nowhere near to finishing it. Instead, I opted to use my middle-of-the-night-snacking to knit her a bib.
Pattern: Grandmother’s Favorite Baby Bib
Designer: Merin McManus Collins
Yarn: Lily’s Sugar n’ Cream in Peppermint, 100% cotton
Needles: Size 6 (I knit loose; you may want to go up to a size 8)
In my stash, I found the perfect button to use.
