Puerperium is moving along quickly. I’ve separated for the sleeves and started the body. I’m taking a chance and setting it aside for a couple of days to concentrate on the Sweet Summer Shawl. I’m hoping the doctor was correct when she said the little one will be on the inside a bit longer even though the mother is having a few contractions. The mother hopes to hang on until after Christmas, and God willing, after New Years for the arrival. Maybe my holding up the knitting will hold up the baby a bit too.
As we head into the home stretch before Christmas I think I’ve got things pretty well in hand. This week will include baking, grocery shopping and gift wrapping. But first we’ll have a little celebrating as today is my birthday. That calls for cake which we will enjoy this evening.
