Here's what I spent yesterday working on:
Ummmm. Yeah. I know. It doesn't look like much yet. But I'm hoping in a week or so it will be something fabulous. It's got some issues (lace weight stockinette stitch on size 6 needles. Can we say lumpy?) so we'll have to wait and see if blocking really is as magical as I think it is and can salvage this mess in the end. Until then I plug along. First it was endless knit rows in the round, then 22 inches of stockinette, then more endless knit stitches. Now I'm on to three inches of 1 x 1 ribbing. This is a boring knit. Easy, mindless, I'm not complaining. Every once in a while I like something that is easy on the brain. I think when I'm done I might have to knit some lace to energize my brain or risk turning into a zombie. Mmmmmmm.....brains. Until then I zone along with the knitting and try not to drool on myself.
But my red blob of a hot mess of knitting isn't what I came to show off today. I've got family pictures!
My favorite - just look at that expression on Bird!
A close second.
The rest of these? Well now I'm just showing off.
Aren't they great?!!! I'll take credit for making the cute kids. But the photography credit goes to Sunshine and Shade Photography. She's not exactly what I would call local, but well worth the drive!
