how freaked out do you think your committee will be on Monday... since you are going to be almost 39 weeks?

sorry, I'm having fun with that image. It's about as fun as the one I have of the high school kids in the room where Nina is taking the ACT next February (as part of a special talent search thing that she qualified for - potential of scholarship money in the future, so we said, eh, why not?). My dad is getting a kick out of talking about the intimidation of tiny 7th grade Nina walking into the room to take the test too.

Got this straight though - stay put, stay quiet prayers through Monday morning - no, let's make that Wednesday morning next week, so you have a full day at home to relax first. Then is it baby out prayers time? or would you prefer some more time to gestate first?

not that my prayers have helped in the past - you tend to go past 40 weeks if I remember correctly. Says I, who has never gone beyond 39.

I've e-mailed you with something that Nina said today too -

Well, you just inspired me to spend money -- I've had Sheldon in my queue forever and now the yarn and the pretty multi-colored needles are winging their way to me. Or, well, the order is winging its way to Knitpicks.

I could not figure out the picot bind-off on the Ice Queen for a YEAR. I kept casting on two stitches, doing the first little instruction, then moving ahead to the next K2TOG -- without CO2 into the stitch moved back to the left needle. The damn castoff became a tighter and tighter noose, the further I cast off. The first time this happened, I had to cut off the edging, join back on the yarn, pick up the stitches -- argh. The second time, I set it aside and tried to ignore it. Then, while my in-laws were here at Thanksgiving, I was seized by the desire to figure it out -- I was going to e-mail you if I couldn't get the answer anywhere else, although I hesitated, because hey, it's not like you've got anything else to occupy you.

Speaking of which, I'll send prayers both that the prelims go swimmingly and that no baby is born along an interstate.

Can we see your ravelry site?

Someday you are going to have to teach me how to knit!
You are amazing!

Tracy, I see 3 of the 4 committee members regularly, so they won't be surprised. The fourth member may boggle a bit. :-) I have never had a baby earlier than 40w6d, and I would just as soon be pregnant for Christmas. Thanks for your prayers (and Jody, yours too).

Ruth, I am mostgladly over at Ravelry, so if you're a Raveler that's all you need. Well, that and for me to get these new projects up over there, which I haven't done yet.

Gina, come visit me and I will totally teach you how to knit. :-)

Holy cow, you are the best knitter ever, as far as I am concerned. LOVE the hats. LOVE Sheldon!

Prayers headed your way for your prelim AND your baby. Hang in there!

I'm sure all will go well with your prelims. I probably already told you that I took the oral exam of my comps 36 weeks pregnant and that Kelvin was born only 10 days later.

I will also be praying that all goes well.
