Yes, I fear we've already begun neglecting the second-born before it's even born. I don't have the time or energy to worry over every little aspect of this pregnancy like I did with my first. I think that's pretty common for a second pregnancy, especially with a toddler in tow. But we haven't even taken a single belly photo, and I'm already 21 weeks along. (Or is it 22? I've lost track. See what I mean?!? I couldn't even tell you how far along I am in plain old months.)
I think, though, at the very least, I ought to knit something for the baby. I tried picking up a little sweater project that I'd started a long time ago for a friend, but I'm not terribly impressed with my work. So instead I picked out what looks to be a relatively easy blanket pattern from a Debbie Bliss baby knits for beginners book, and found a great little yarn store yesterday, 't Ryahuis, that's not too far away. (Nice. 30 miles is now "not too far away". At least I didn't have to go to Groningen.)
The pattern is sort of a patchwork of about ten or eleven squares of each color. I started on my first square last night and could hardly put it down to go to bed. I forgot how addictive short rows of garter stitch on a pair of Addi Turbos can be. Woo hoo! Can't wait to show you the finished product.
