Yarn Along

Several flights in the past week has meant plenty of knitting time, and it was so nice to have something productive to do during what could otherwise be down time.  It's not often over the course of a regular day that I have several uninterrupted hours of commitment free knitting time, so it was exciting to see some rapid progress.  I finished up one "in threes" cardigan during our trip to Austin, and am halfway through another.  It's such a nice, simple pattern, and I think that my finished vest will be just about 3-6 month size.  I still need to find a truly newborn pattern for the babies when they arrive in the mid winter!

We've been reading through the Little House books with the girls each evening, and it is such a treat to be reading them aloud.  Both Ben and I adore these books, and even when I am not the one reading aloud, I will usually remain within earshot to hear Ben reading the stories.  I think our girls really believe that they are Mary and Laura, and their personalities sort of fit the mold, too.  There's our careful, sweet eldest child, and our curious, lively littler sister.  When playing little house imaginary play, Hugo of course gets relegated to either the role of baby Carrie or Jack the bulldog.  Ah, life in a house full of girls.

Linking up with Ginny and the yarn along today!
