Full-term and FOs

As of the middle of last week I am full-term. I would guess I've still got a couple weeks to go--which is good. I've got a few things to finish up at work before I take some time off to get acquainted with the newest family member.

In the meanwhile, call it nesting, or something, but I have finished a few projects.

First the Traveling Woman shawlette, which I could have finished a few weeks ago, but had a crisis about the amount of yarn. I ended up ripping back, and from then it finished off quickly.
Here it is:

And up close:

I also made a bulky little baby hat in one evening:

But the big finish is the Tilted Duster. I had to block the sleeves pretty hard--don't know if they would be tight anyway, or if it is due to the pregnancy, but after blocking they fit fine. Months and months sitting around in a bag waiting for sleeves--but I finally have something cozy to wear. I will probably wear it non-stop for the next 6 weeks or so :)
