Quick knits for the belly

Getting bigger, slowing down, time for knitting for the baby.

This weekend leg warmers or "warm leggers" as my son calls them. Modeled here by the beautiful Devan.

My husband had informed me that this actually makes me the biggest geek in history, but...

How amazing is this fiber art installation outside the Denver art museum! The dorky part, I knew the name of the artist: Janet Echelman from my Fiber Arts magazine reading. She was featured in the Nov/Dec 2009 issue.

You must see it at night, when it's lit up. I made Cary take me after our anniversary dinner out. Couldn't waste having a babysitter.

Also a little peak at my ever growing belly. Happy weekend!

Dreaming of fall

This time of year I start dreaming of fall. I even started a knitting project which is a cool season activity for me.

I'm ready to start nesting in for the winter, maybe it's the pregnancy.

-the project: baby leg warmers!
