Last week seems to have kick started my knitting urge. These days, there is little to make me feel more productive than sitting down with some needles in hand (and with a curious almost-4 year old at my side with her "needles," which, these days, are a set of colored pencils). This week I just finished up a puerperium cardigan for the new baby. All it needs to be done is some wooden buttons and a darning needle (and some blocking!). I used a slightly heavier weight yarn, and my guage was running a bit big, so as it turns out, this cardigan will probably be just perfect for the fall... Those summer babies are hard to knit for!
These are also the days when two sweet little girls will cuddle in next to me with books in hand, requesting story after story, which I happily read aloud. My "free reading" has mainly consisted of some birth practitioner reading. I never seem to get tired of it!
Looking forward to seeing what everyone else is up to at Ginny's yarn along!
