Has anyone else ever experienced knitter’s block? It’s the strangest thing. And I’ve only ever had it the two times I have been pregnant.
Last year, when NOT pregnant, I knitted everything under the SUN. Sweaters, toys, baby hats (I think I made no less than a dozen hats for friends and friends of friends), baby dresses, afghans (okay, so the afghan didn’t get finished, but only because I got pregnant right after I started it! … see? … Knitter’s block).
Now that I am pregnant, I just can’t knit a darn thing. Now is when I should be knitting up a storm, making all sorts of cute things before our little girl’s arrival in July. But again … nothing.
I bought yarn awhile back to make her a tomato hat (because how funny would THAT be?!)
Haven’t even gotten the yarn out of the bag.
Yesterday, bound and determined to break the block, I went to iYarn and bought some creamy, lightweight DK yarn to make a dress for baby girl, using the same pattern I used for Miss Rylee. Here is that cute little dress:
This was easily one of my favorite knitting projects ever. I thought the lace would be difficult, but I loved it! Maybe my new yarn paired with this delightful pattern will break my knitter’s block.

Beautiful! Where can I get the pattern?
Sue, the name of the pattern is “bloom” by Georgie Hallam. You can find it on Ravelry.com.
