Life has been a exhausting lately.
The demands of work, home life, pregnancy and various other things needing attention, have been adding up.
I'm taking the daily placenta brain meltdowns as I sign that I need to slow down, let some things go.
I've stepped away from the sewing machine for a while, and have been spending my short evenings reclining on the sofa instead, scouring Ravelry and knitting patterns for something that fits with my stash and mood.
I ended up opting for a baby garment- something for the new bub to wear next year when the weather cools down- a Drops garter stitch wrap cardigan (on Ravelry) in some Du Store Alpakka that I was gifted a long time ago.
Scandinavian yarn with a Scandinavian pattern.
I already have a range of knitwear that C wore, so it's not really something the baby will need, but it feels really soothing just to sit and knit, and good that the little one will have something special to be wrapped in one day.
