Whats going on, Knit Back in Time book and pregnancy update...

Hello hello,
been a while since I post anything here. Sorry about that! :)
I am enjoying being pregnant, enjoying being home with my family, enjoying cooking and also 
enjoying knitting. My vintage 1940s sweater nearly finished, only sleeves left, so soon I be bragging about it!
Also got this amazing book recently, and I am totally in love with it! Can't even recommend it highly enough! Be making more lovely vintage cardigans and sweaters soon. I got mine on this site.

Description of the book:
'' Do you have a great new jumper pattern that doesn't match your current obsession for Peter Pan collars? Or have you found an original 1950s pattern for a gorgeous knitted blouse only to realise it's three sizes too small and the recommended yarns haven't been around for at least 20 years? Don't be limited by what is available on-line and in shops. This book shows you how simple it is to change lengths, take out waists, shorten sleeves, and substitute for yarns that are no longer in production. Knit Back in Time reveals two crucial secrets for knitting vintage-style projects: how to update a vintage pattern to suit modern sizes and yarns, and how to customise modern patterns to give them a vintage look. It also provides patterns for vintage-style elements, offering invaluable advice on mixing and matching sleeves, necklines, and collars to create your own designs. You can choose to add a bell-shaped, three-quarter, or ruffled sleeve to the same sweater body, depending on the look you want, or just give in and knit three different jumpers, all from the same basic pattern.''

Moreover to share, I had amazing photoshoot with my college friends Aisling and Laura last nite! Was such a great time and experience. So here few shots from it:

I am nearly 37 weeks on these pictures! So excited!

Mum to be,

  1. Алина, привет! Я тоже люблю ретро-стиль. Кофточка чудесная намечается, видела ее в предыдущем посте, хочется и на тебе увидеть :). Как ты быстро вяжешь, однако, я сейчас по маминой просьбе тоже вяжу ей кофту, но в день только по 20 рядов успеваю :(.
    Фотосессия на память - это хорошая идея, деткам интересно будет посмотреть какими они были в животике :))).
