Hahaha! I tell DH about the sagas of superbad sometimes, we take comfort in the fact that Pi is not alone in his absolutely insane boyish antics. He was in tears over this one and said "yup, that would so be Pi"

Depends. If I think it's going to be a while before I knit it, usually plastic. A lot of my handspun stays open, because I knit through it pretty fast. Most of my stash is fiber though. Fiber I keep varying, superwash can be open, non superwash is usually bagged but VERY LOOSELY, it's all on shelves in the closet where it's dark and protected from animal hair etc.

something like this:
That's what I have that my yarn stays in, I have some totes or crates pushed into that.


Midwife appt went well. They found a heartbeat right away, in the 150s again. She asked about movement, which I have felt today, and I said it was much less regular than with Pixie. She said it was placenta related and not to worry much, which of course is silly to tell a prego mama not to worry! But whatever. She wants my ultrasound done around 18 weeks, ONLY THREE WEEKS AWAY!!!!! So they can have the results in before Christmas, and we'll go over them at my next visit right after Christmas. She also asked me to get just one lab done, and said I could do both at one trip to the hospital so it wouldn't be so much hassle.

I'm very excited to be so close to the anatomy scan! We had a nice lunch out with BIL & SIL. I definitely need to get cracking on my sewing and holiday knits though so I can be knitting squishy baby stuff in THREE WEEKS!

Fi would be disappointed with me. But in my defense I don't have a lot of GOOD yarn...

No, thankfully the dating ultrasound ruled that out quite definitely last month! I know some families would be over the moon about such a thing, but DH and I are definitely NOT up for that!!

I'm not sure if you want a girl or boy, but I'm sending girly vibes your way.

Lanae- welcome! I'm novice on a good day too! I started crochet first and just learned to knit in the last month or so- the ladies here are wonderful for motivation!

Erica- for the first yarn, definitely skirted longies or bloomers... The second yarn is a little tougher.

AFM- the boys are having a garage party, I'm putting kids to bed then off to join them for a bit. I'm halfway done one mitten. :/

If you never plan on selling it or selling things made from it, you can store it however you want. It's when you sell it that it matters really, yk?
