New Leaf for NovemberI'm not sure that I can fully commit to the 1 post a day idea for November since we're traveling for Thanksgiving, but I'm going to at least post more often than once a month. Perhaps once I'm knitting something more interesting than a top-down raglan in the round in stockinette, I'll be more motivated.
Because my current knitting is so boring, I'll attempt to distract with cute baby with handknits. I made this sweater for her LAST year, but either Scandinavian babies are gigantic, or the sizes were rather off, because it fits her THIS year. (and she's outgrowing 12 month size clothes, so it's not that she's small.) But WOOT! Handknits that still fit!
(and yes, that is her chicken. poor chicken!)
She is also just about standing and walking on her own, so Daddy has to learn to stop leaving tempting closet doors open. And see her sweater? Another handknit from last year that still fits. This one was a gift, though, so it's even better!
Handknits were decidedly not in evidence yesterday for Halloween - before it started raining, it was in the 70s, so we were able to stage a bit of a photoshoot with our little jack-o-lanterns.
And yes, we did force Abby into her bee costume again. And she hated it just as much as each previous year. But if she's going to insist on charging the door like a barking maniac every time kids come for candy, she's going to have to put up with dressing up so she's less scary.
I still think she's plotting to kill S in his sleep in repayment for the indignity. One of our neighbors dressed up their dog like a princess... pink sparkly "dress" and everything... so I don't think Abby has it too bad!
