After a strong month of knitting I'm sort of assessing the stash. There is a lot of yarn to be used and so many projects to do, but I am hesitant to really do anything for myself until after the baby arrives.  Still, if I can manage to start something and follow my pre-pregnancy measurements, I might have something super nice for winter in a size that I'll fit into.

The beautiful thing about Peruvia that it can and will stretch to what size I want to be in, for the most part.  I've had my eyes on the Tempting pattern from Knitty for sometime (with cable mods). It's amazingly difficult to find a reasonably sized sweater for large boobed women. Tempting, however, looks like it's friendly to us chesty types.

Anyway, I'm still working on that sweater for Phil and I suppose I should really pick it up and really giver. Plus, I have that drop stitch scarf for my hairdresser. I'll probably work on it at knitting group... but after finishing some items for myself I'm feeling a little bit greedy. I always knit for others;  I'm allowed to knit for myself, right?

Additionally, I'm tempted to start projects for my 2 year old (who turns 3 soon) and for the unborn Russellbun. We'll see, I guess.  I do have a couple lovely skeins of Malabrigo worsted. Maybe they'll knit up into something fun.

On a final note, I finally washed those Monkey socks I made. I wore them without washing and blocking them because I was away from home without my soak or my sock blockers... and they turned my feet yellow XD  Didn't stop me from wearing them, though :P So, I put them in the sink with the soak, drained out the yellow water, and am letting them dry on the blockers for a few days before I dare wear them again.  I have a feeling, however, that my feet might still end up yellow.
