There has been knitting:

Sockapaloooza sock #2 just needs a toe!

Still plugging away on Secret Garden for Daughter (no major rush - it is for fall). I don't think I'm in danger of becoming a photo stylist anytime soon. Don't you love my creative use of the sugar bowl to hold the sweater down while I stretch out the pattern? Tres professional.

There has been ickiness:
I ask for your continued thoughts and prayers as I am still experiencing cramps and bleeding. At our last visit to the doctor (last Tuesday) the baby looked fine, but of course I've been reading stuff on the internet that scares the bejeebers out of I'm not yet convinced that everything will be fine. I am trying to pray, rest, pray some more, and have faith that there is a plan. Right now the only thing that seems to relieve the pain/pressure/bleeding is lying flat on my back. Which is not too swell since I have to somehow care for my 1 year old. My mom has been a trooper, driving the 45 minutes each way to care for us, but I'm on my own today and hoping to stay flat out as much as possible. Luckily Daughter is good at entertaining herself by playing on the family room floor.

I love the work on the secret garden! Sending prayers and energy your way.

Lots of thoughts and prayers coming your way. The socks and sweater look wonderful!! I love the colors you chose.

Daughter's birthday pictures are precious. :)

Ah, Kate ... I'm sorry you're still experiencing some problems. I may have posted this already, but as an antidote to Scary Internet Reading (say "no" to Google!), I've had bleeding in two pregnancies -- significant bleeding in my last -- and both babies were born at term and healthy. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers, and am pleased that the baby is looking fine so far.

What yarn are you using for Secret Garden? It looks lovely.

Thanks for the kind words! Knitting is keeping my mind off the scary stuff right now.

Ruth - that DOES make me feel better. I am clinging to stories like yours. They give us lots of hope! The yarn I'm using for Secret Garden is Knitpicks Wool of the Andes in Fern. It knits up beautifully.

Sending all sorts of good thoughts your way - I can't imagine the combination of scared and bored that you must be experiencing.

Is it any consolation that Secret Garden is stunning? It is. And I think the sugar bowl adds charm ;)
