Consolation Prize

I should never go on The Price is Right. (Did you hear Bob Barker came back?) I would really, really suck at that game.

Behind door number one we have a positive pregnancy test, gorgeous knit cotton cashmere maternity sweater complete with coordinating Baby Legs out of irresistible baby cashmere.

Behind door number two we have a negative pregnancy test, colorful socks. Or this. Or this one. Or all three. And still the Baby Legs.

Apparently I chose door number two and have done so four years running. No one can say we haven't given it our best effort. Can't say I'm surprised. No one looks good in a maternity sweater and my subconscious knows that. I will, however, still purchase the yarn for the baby legs because sometime there will be another baby. My babies just take longer than nine months to get here.

Do not underestimate the power of knitting and retail therapy, it can make for a very soothing consolation prize.
