It's been a little while

Hi all hope that life is treating everybody okay. Not much going on around The Goodwin household. Just waiting for the arrival of the baby. Due any day now. If she doesn't come before the 10th of August I will be induced. Here are a couple of pictures of Goodies that I have recieved in the mail. The first couple of pictures are of some yarn I ordered from Etsy. My first order from there and I would have to say that I will definitly be ordering from this shop again. Its LoveSticks fingering weight yarn in "Surf & Turf" and "Vegas Baby". Her customer service is awsome and she shipped so fast. I live in Germany and got it in lest then a week. Now that's fast!And a couple WIP's. The first is Vesper sock yarn in "Astro". It's a regular sock with a pretty Picot edge. Just some mindless Knitting if I go into labor and need a simple project in the hospital. And last but not least my Yarn Booty. I joined Yarn Pirates Booty club. So far I love the first shippment and have cast on the Penllyn Sock pattern from Wildhorse Farm Designs. I am totally in love with the pattern and yarn combo. What do you think? It's a super fun and fast knit with really cool results. Looks harder then it really is.
I will keep you all informed on any baby news along with Knitting news when anything exciting happens. Hope you are all enjoying the weekend. Happy Knitting!

A Couple of WIP

Hi all just wanted to show you a couple of works in progress. Just trying to get ready for the impending arrival of our daughter. I will be induced on the 10th of August. I can't wait. Hopefully my husband will be able to be here for the birth. He is currently in Iraq and I asked my doctor if I could be induced so that we could try and get him home. Wish us luck!!! The first project on the needles is a Shedir cap. But with modifications to fit a new born. I should be done with this sometime tonight or tomorrow. I will update the blog with more pictures when it is done.
The next project is a quilt, it's almost done. I just have to finish sewing on the binding by hand. Here are pictures anyway. I used Fresh Cut fabric and Minky dot fabric on the back and for the binding.

Thanks for checking out the blog...and happy crafting.
