As you can see,

I didn't make it back yesterday.  Some things kept me very busy.

Miss Crab Crawly and 

Miss Gotta Get Down.  I hit the wrong button and turned the video off while she was getting up and I couldn't get her to do it again.  It seems she had better things to do. By yesterday evening, she was getting up easily and down with style and grace.  I am inordinately charmed by these things.  

Between grandma and mommy we invented a new protocol for getting baby to sleep.  First Grandma talks and tells stories, and gently rocks and bores baby to death, and then mommy swoops in and saves her and in minutes of mommy's tender rocking, Sweet Thing is fast asleep.  Which meant Grandma could sit and knit while she watched to make sure our wiggly miss didn't fall out of bed.  

I have another section of Wingspan done and that was about it for knitting time.  I really love this little ball of Noro.  The colours are, as I thought it would be, just the most amazing thing.  It is sun bleached.  It is driftwood.  It is kick back and casual, and it shows up so much better for the rich dark border. 

That was the best decision I could have made for it, this rich dark border.  It's a little like putting just the right amount of eye makeup on to really show off pretty eyes, or painting your window frames a colour when your house is otherwise all white. 

There is the prettiest sky out there this morning and it reminds me that I have dozens of things to do today.  And just a day to get them all done in.  Some of them are knitting!

Beautiful knitting and a clever growing baby - is there anything better?

It is so wonderful to have a baby in the house.
