E is for Elizabeth

I stumbled across this book, The Real Mother Goose ABCs, in the new bookstore that just opened up down the street from us.
Isn’t it perfect? I just had to buy it for our Elizabeth.

Lately, I have felt like I am dragging around a huge clock, listening to the seconds and minutes click by. Only 4 more months until Elly (our nickname for Elizabeth) is here and all my little projects have to be completed. Ack!
Sooo, I have been busy priming in the nursery and working diligently on the shawl.

Some progress has been made on the shawl.

It still looks like an oversized hat though. There are moments when I could kick myself for including such a detailed lace pattern. 

Progress has also been made in the nursery, but almost everything is white now and thus doesn’t make for good pictures.

In other news, one of my designs has been picked up by a magazine. It will be published in Spring of next year. Woo! Unfortunately I can’t give any more details, but I wanted to share my joy with you.

  1. I had a really similar book as a child – I remember loving it and I’m sure Elly will, too!

    Also, Congrats on the magazine feature! How cool!

  2. I had a Nursery Rhyme book with similar art. I loved it. I can’t wait to see the finished shawl.
    Congrats on the accepted design!

  3. Oh my, that is great!! Love the name Elly is so sweet! How exciting for you about the pattern! Tell us as soon as you can, we will storm the book stores and buy the magazine!
    Keep at it with the shawl, it always amazes me how my “bag of shapeless knitting” turns into a beatiful lace creature after blocking.
    Your knitting is always so pretty!
    Hope your still feeling well.
