Stuff In My House Special Edition: Stroller


I’m pregnant, due in mid-November. We haven’t gotten much else yet, but the stroller (a Zooper Twist) was available at a good price (half the list price) at Costco. It’s been sitting quietly in the living room, occasionally playing host to Toaster who seems to find it quite comfy. It came with all sorts of accessories too: a rain cover, bug/sun screen cover, and an insulated foot muff thingy. Fancy.

This is all very exciting, but I’m afraid the first trimester has been dire. Think too nauseous to knit dire. And my poor sweaters… Even though I haven’t grown much elsewhere yet, my bust has already expanded by 2 inches. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that someday, somewhere, I’ll be able to wear them.

This weekend is Maryland Sheep & Wool, and I’ll be there looking for baby-friendly yarns bright and early on Saturday morning. Matt has already promised to come along to carry things, so hopefully I’ll last long enought to make the Saturday Ravelry meetup.

    You know how thrilled we are that there is going to be a new addition to the Oviatt/Skillman family. Anxious for November to come so we can meet our new grandbaby.

    If you need some help on Saturday for the sheep and wool festival, just give me a ring.
