Secret secret. I've got a secret.
So when I was reading blogs for the contest I created for the Baby a Baby Swap, I found that one of the ladies had a special project for labor/pre-labor. Actually, I think it was one of those "once I finish this, I can go into labor" projects. I've been considering one of these for MONTHS, but it was actually on the line of "once I go into labor, I'll start this project for relaxation" projects. Knitting is pretty repetitive and I figured it'd keep my mind busy and off of any discomfort for the first bit of labor.
Except that I really really really want to get started on it and I don't want to wait for labor to start to start working on it! So what do I do? Start it now and then not have a project to work on during labor? (yeah right- I've got about 7 WIPs right now- there will be something for me to work on) But this was a special project, for the baby, and it's pretty small.
But what if I go into labor and it's so fast that I don't get to finish it? What if? What if?
What is this project?- that's the secret. Why am I being vague about it? Well, McKay is a little uneasy about the project. He's kind of against it, especially if we have a boy. If we have a girl, he doesn't mind so much. Admittedly, I would knit it bubble gum pink no matter what the gender is.
Also, I know that some people might not find it appropriate for a baby. Well, frankly, I don't think babies care about stuff like that, but if someone saw my baby with one, they might question my... taste? mental state? I don't know. I think it's a cool pattern. I have great justifications for this and I've wanted to make it since I saw the pattern.
I've got a secret I've been hiding under my skin....So if you see me acting strangely, don't be surprised...
