Hi everyone! Lots to report here. First, I've finished knitting my scarf!
I've already blocked it, so it's nice and relaxed and ready for winter. This is about 60 inches long and 9 inches wide. I used two balls of Sirdar Crofter Fair Isle Effect, cast on 50 stitches on 4mm knitting needles, working it in stockinette stitch. I'm absolutely crazy about the colors, and I am so tempted to get more in different colorways. We'll see how my wallet feels about that...
I've also got an update on my Little Sheep Virtues SAL:
This is Faith at 1400 stitches. Still steadily working on the border. The colors on this one are not my favorite, but I'm hoping it all ties in together when I'm done.
Things are still crazy hectic here. My father-in-law had to leave to Japan to get back to work, but everyone else (MIL and two SILs) are still here. To make things more interesting, Ramadan started on Thursday, which means everyone is fasting (Ramadan is to us what Lent is to Christians, expect we don't eat ANYTHING from sunup to sundown every day for a month). However, I'm not fasting this year, because...
Some serious, hardcore happy dancing going on here. I'm already in my 13th week, but I was waiting to hit the first-trimester mark before I told anyone. My due date is mid-December, so I have a lot to think about and plan. I'm so happy we managed to move to a bigger place - just in time!
