Gratuitous belly shot and some knits

Chatting with my soon to be SIL has made me realize how long its been since Ive posted. I have some new stuff to share. One of which is my growing belly. 19 weeks and looking pregnant yay! Its nice to look like I'm growing a baby finally instead of just fat/bloated. We had an ultrasound last week that confirmed what Ive known all along, that its a boy! I can't wait to get started on all the boy projects I have in mind. I've finished the baby sophisticate sweater from ravelry. Just need to add some boy-ish buttons. I found the pattern not perfect but once I got going, pretty easy to follow. There are a few things I would change next time around (making the arms and front panels wider), but it was a pretty quick knit and fun to knit all in one piece. I plan to cast on v2 tomorrow at Craft Night at Mae's house.

I also finished this little monkey inspired by the Small Bunny pattern also from ravelry. He was a gift for the yet to be born baby Mason. His momma and daddy both grew up with adored monkey softies so I had to make one for little Mason.
Ive got ideas for a few tshirt refashions as well as some summer maternity items. I think we'll have all my craft stuff moved from the baby's room into Bruce's office this weekend so hopefully Ill have my sewing space back and the frenzy can begin.
