|J's 3rd birthday during his Blue's Clues phase|
I miss those days when Mom can do no wrong in his eyes, and a kiss could cure all manner of boo-boos. He was the youngest for almost 5 years before M came along. Sometimes, I think he's never forgiven me for dethroning him as the baby of the family.
On another note, I got a surprising message on my computer when I woke up yesterday. E asked me, "will I be okay bringing knitting needles on the plane?" Boy, was I proud. My daughter knitting on an airplane! It almost brought tears to my eyes! Then I saw what she was knitting and I really wanted to cry. Poor kid. She's knitting on size 15 needles, yet her stitches are so tight, you can barely get the right needle into the stitches. And her scarf is not only growing length-wise, the width is growing too. I switched out her monster 13-inch metal needles for a pair of circulars. At least she won't be poking anyone in the eye on her return trip to school.
My February Lady Sweater acquired some pretty buttons purchased from Webs. I didn't bother blocking the sweater and have worn it already.
double heelix socks are off the needles and been worn at least three times. I even managed to stretch them over my big feet to match a purple and blue Christmas sweater.
hat from leftover Peruvia and Mochi Plus I bought during a trip to San Francisco. My mother-in-law loved the hat so much, I knit another one for her. My niece got the first one.
watermelon hat was started and completed for the littlest niece.
fan scarf for a birthday present.
druidess beret during the Thanksgiving long weekend for another niece that looooves hats.
Wow. Despite the holiday madness of shopping, cleaning, cooking, decorating, I've managed to spread some handmade love to my family.
