Ravelry Invitation

I just received my invitation to Ravelry! I'm psyched. I can't explore it now - headed out to enjoy a beautiful day at a fall festival.

This is my 100th post. It's going to be 100 things about me, I first saw the 100 things posted at Gina's blog. Here goes:

1. I think way too much. Therefore, it'll take me forever to do this.
2. My goal is to complete this list in 100 days or less.

Terrible Twos

My baby will be two years old on Saturday and it feels terrible. I'm not ready for it. I'm just not ready for her to be out of diapers and wanting to do things all on her own. I don't want her to grow up.

While in Burlington, VT this summer a man in a parking garage saw us, smiled and commented "The twos are terrific, all that discovery of independence!" I think I'll always remember him saying that. Think about it. It is an amazing time. Right now, it feels painful.

Maybe if I never finish the 2T-3T sweater I'm knitting for her, she'll never grow up.

Cloth Baby Shoes

I have not sewn anything for a long time, but when Marsha turned me towards this pattern for Cloth Baby Shoes, I pulled out the sewing machine. They are so cute, I just had to make 'em. I don't even have a baby in mind for these.

"It's Art"

Today my four-year-old painted this, "It's for you", she said excitedly, running up next to me, painting in hand. I stooped down next to her for a closer look.

Me: Tell me about it.
T: It's Art.

Baby Socks

The baby socks are done. I think they turned out great and pair nicely with the simple hat. Not much else in knitting news, progress is slow on the Debbie Bliss jacket. It's alot of stockinette stitch with baby cashmerino on size 3 needles - a dream to work with, but it's taking me forever.
