OK, so I am very pregnant (3 weeks til due date) and want to have something fairly easy and distracting to knit for early labor... and wanted to make something for myself that I would be able to wear that might cover any post-baby lumps I might have... I saw the Waterlilly top in Interweave Knits and it looked perfect- BUUUUT sounds complicated.  I think it might be too much for a first sweater/actual garment project.  I have made many a hat, scarf and multiple pairs of fuzzy feet slippers, but no actual shirts.  Anyone made this top yet, and can anyone lead me to something similar that might be simpler?  Thanks!!!!!!

I just bought the ribbon yarn this weekend!! I ended up buying Berroco Yogo which has some really beautiful colors and, of course, a great price!! I got the color swami - http://www.berroco.com/shade_cards/yoga_sh.html
I dont have a ton of experience with sweaters either but I am going ahead with the knowledge in my head and heart that once you can knit you can knit anything it just might take a little more patience and time but it can and will be done!! Im not sure how much time youll have to work on it with a new baby in the house unless you can finish it before the little one is here!! If this is a first baby youll be fine with extra time to knit unless baby doesnt sleep -if this is number 2 or 3 it will be a little more difficult (from experience!). I wish you luck with it it is truly a beautiful pattern!!! Id even be up for a knit a long if anyone else is???

Oh and Happy Baby!!!! What a wonderful time of life!!! Blessings to you and your family!!

You can never change the past. But by the gace of God, you can win the future. So, remember those things which will help you forward, but forget about the things which will only hold you back.

Well... I actually totally copycatted you.
I just ordered the SAME yarn and in the SAME colorway - haha!
Like you said, if you can knit you can do it. I'll knit to that.  Wink

Thanks on the congrats.  This is our first.  The idea was to knit while in labor haha to distract me.. we will see how that goes.  I will start it well in advance - well, depending on when the yarn gets here!
