The skinny bitch is skinny no longer

I realize that I have been quiet for some time, and I do apologize, but I actually have a very good reason for my silence. For the better part of two months, I've been unable to do much besides try to get through my day. Yes, dramatic and sad sounding, right? Not so much.

My husband and I decided that after almost 10 years together, it was time. Yup. I'm expecting. But that's not all. I'm expecting TWINS.

If ever I needed my knitting mojo back, it's now. And lo did the sun did shine down and I started going through the many baby patterns that my loving Nana left to me. Yes, I will knit again. I MUST knit again, and I must start post-haste. I need to get it all in now before the twins are born because heaven knows I'll have NO time after.

Anyway, now that I can look at a computer (or anything else for that matter) without getting ill, I will be writing more often. Hopefully with knitting content. :D

Congratulations!!! That's so exciting! And twins -- wow! My cousin just had twin girls (in addition to having a 3 year old and a 2 year old...I'm exhausted just thinking about it) and it was hilarious (in the sort of way that makes you want to smack people) to hear what random strangers thought was ok to say about her very large belly. But I don't think there's anything cuter than twins, and especially twins in handknit garments. Thanks for sharing your news!!
