 Mommy snug in progress

Hello! I know some of you were knitting Mommy snugs from the last Interweave knits summer issue. Mine goes really slow, I just finished the front and it has taken 2 weeks. Here it is, pinned on my cami. I'm in love with it, the shape is perfect. Kate Gilbert is not only a great designer but also knows about pregnant women's bodies. I'm using Jaeger merino aran which is a problem because it is not exactly the suggested yarn for this model. But it was on sale at my LYS and it caught my attention because of its softness and the bright red color. To fix the gauge problem, I am knitting with #5 instead of #6 needles following the small size pattern instead of my size which is large. The result is fine and anyway I'll be using the sweater during the coldest months in Maine, so I made a wise decission.
Any comment?

Hi Jillz, thanks for the nice comments about my siesta throw in Noro Kureyon. To answer your questions- I used 5mm circs and I cast on 130 sts. You could play about with the numbers depending on the look you want. Now, off to read your blog!

That looks cool. Mine is very similar and is taking forever too. I am using Naturally et soie which is merino and silk, in red too. Don't you just love red?

Awesome!

Just discovered this place, I am a knitter and am pregnant (due in July). Unfortunately, pregnancy seems to put a damper on my knitting because carpal tunnel rears its ugly head, so I have to cut back. I will enjoy reading this though.
