Hourglass oh how I heart thee

Pattern: Last Minute Knitted Gifts
Yarn: Noro cashmere island
I finished her a few weeks ago and figured I should share as there has been little knitting content on my blog lately. I enjoyed knitting this sweater and the finishing was really easy, next time I will make it one size smaller though. Like how our Bella is rolling over on the bed saying "Geesh lady stop taking pictures of your vain self and pet me for god's sakes!"
I'm starting to feel better from all the meds, still feeling some bloating in my stomach but it has went down some. This whole process doesn't do a lot for a girl's self esteem. I can't wait until I can exercise again a wee bit. I told Steve last night I want to at least go for a walk and we both agreed that I should wait until we get our results. I never knew that 10 days could go by so very slow. At least I'm getting some knitting done!

Long time, busy making baby or babies!

I'm sorry I haven't written in so very long, these little ones are what has been consuming our lives the past month. I have knitting progress to post soon too.
Steve and I have went through our first IVF and are awaiting the results we will hopefully have on the 26th. It's really hard for me to not obsess about it right now until we hear. The little ones we at the 150 cell stage on day 5 which means they have a better chance.
I've been trying to stay busy knitting, reading, and baking. I'm making drop stitch scarves for all the women in the clinic. I think I'll make a cabled scarf for the doc too. The boys are excited and we were all contemplating names at breakfast. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers!
