Comments are still down. We are working to fix them, I have enlisted the help of my dad. It’s hard to fix and or do things that require more than a half hour of effort. Sophia is a good baby – sleeps well, eats well, plays well. But she’s a baby and being held during the day is her favorite past time. Waking up to eat is the highlight of her day! Interspersed with these moments I am trying hard to slow down and enjoy this time. This requires me to pare down my to-do list. The thank-you cards will get done, eventually, the blog posts will get written (eventually), bills will get paid (eventually). In the meantime baby gets fed, loved and relished and all is as it should be.
Sophia and I have been incredibly fortunate. My fellow knitters and bloggers have showered us with love in the form of comments, positive energy, and postal love. Postal love? We’re talking packages that warrant a kiss on the cheek of the mailman that delivered them. And this is saying something because our mailman is a weird-o who likes to stuff our mail into our box crumpled up one piece at a time.
Right before Christmas I received a package from Laura A. Laura has been a visitor on this here blog since the very beginning (and a bookish girl contest winner!). She is witty, funny, and an all around super cool human being. She recently started a blog herself. In lieu of commenting here go give the girl some love. She is an incredible knitter. How do I know this you ask? She sent Sophia not one, but two incredibly gorgeous sweaters, and a matching hat. The pure genius at work here is illustrated with the thoughtful inclusion of the yarn labels, extra yarn, and extra buttons. Dude, why have I never thought of that?! I have thanked her formally and now would love for you to see her handy work. The seams are georgie-ous.
Thank you again Laura! Sophia is just fitting into the green sweater and it’s perfect!Â Here is a blurry action shot of her with my BFF Juli (who was here visiting and just left – boohoohoo).Â Juli was boucing the girl into happiness so the sweater lump of puddin’ is a bit blurry.Â I hope to get a better shot sometime soon.
