Breaking Radio Silence

This will be short and sweet, but after being such a bad blogger for so long, I feel I owe you an explanation. You see, it has been a very exciting time in the Whisks and Needles home. On the day before Thanksgiving, Psycling and I received wonderful news: we're going to be parents! The little one is due on August 2. So, this means for the past couple of months I have been battling the nausea and exhaustion that come with the first trimester of pregnancy. As a result, I haven't had the energy to do much but sleep...which means too tired to cook and too tired to knit. Unfortunately no cooking and no knitting (and no energy) means no blogging. And the nausea has meant that I wouldn't really be able to eat anything that I might cook anyway...for a while I was living on grilled cheese, cereal, bagels and cream cheese, and mac and cheese (notice a theme here?).

I'm now about 12 weeks along, and fortunately, the nausea has tapered off and I'm slowly getting my energy back. Not only am I writing a blog post, but I might even find the energy to knit when I'm done (this a pretty huge given my zombie-ness recently).

I hope that as my energy comes back, I will be able to do some more experimenting in the kitchen, get some more projects going on the needles (maybe from the Baby Knits book Psycling got me for Christmas), and generally maybe be a normal person again. I'll do my best to stick to the basics here, and not turn this into a blog about pregnancy and impending mommy-hood. But with such big changes going on, I imagine some of them will find their way into this blog.

Stay tuned...more on the way eventually!
