Gone with the jumper, yay more yarn!!

Here's the Bubela last year in a Debbie Bliss jumper I knit up for him. It was before my blogging days so I didn't document it.

In summary, its knit up in Debbie Bliss Cotton DK which is a bulky cotton. I thought this cotton to be very heavy especially for a kids jumper, and the Bubela didn't really like wearing it. I think he always felt uncomfortable in it, the hood was always dragging his jumper back, his sleeves were always troubling him. Oy. I think he looked gorgeous in it, but I think he'd looks gorgeous in sac!!

Anyhoo, the crux of it is that the Bubela just will not wear it. If it isn't tarnished with Spiderman or footballs he is not interested. Its a nice jumper, but if the kid wont wear it, believe me he wont wear it.

So, enough with the kvetching the jumper became my frogging session. Here I am on my "knitting chair", jumper and dpn in hand and unpicking seams.
And here is what became of that Magila ... 8 balls of Debbie Bliss DC Cotton in Brown.

Plans, plans, plans. I'm knitting up a tank top for him now. I'll keep you posted.

As for my life during IVF#3. The drugs are playing havoc with my emotions. There are too many hormones running through my body that I just can't keep up myself, high and low, happy and sad, positive and negative, argh.

My thighs are bruised blue and speckled pinpricked pink, my stomach is bloated from steroids and I can't fit into my clothes.

Monday's scan showed 12 follicles growing nicely. Each follicle does not necessarily contain an egg, but 12 is a nice number to have. I do have couple of hurdles yet (nothing seems easy with me), but I'm still praying.

Eggs are coming out on Monday.

Vogue Winter arrived today. Where's my Rowan 39?

Wow, I thought that jumper as very cool looking! Oh, well. I'm sure whatever you make with the yarn will come out looking great and it'll be even better if he wears it.

Best of luck with your IVF. I can't imagine what you're going through, but I'm sure it'll be all worth it in the end.

Good Luck! I am also on my 3rd IVF and I am getting the eggs out next week some time. 12 is an awesome number...some people only get one or two out of the deal. My fingers are crossed for you!

Oh, I'm keeping my fingers tightly crossed for you and your eggs. How lovely it'd be if we could all have a blog celebration of a new baby! And y'know, I think your little boy would look great in a sack, too! ~Sharon
