I finished up Piper’s little Langston cardi a couple of nights ago and I just couldn’t wait for cool weather to see how it looks. I think it’s pretty sweet, and seems to be just about the right size for her once I add in proper layers, not just her frilly-sleeved summer dress, underneath.
Miserable baby teething again. Piper has been wearing her amber, just like the older kids, since just before two months old (coincidentally just before her first tooth arrived), but this one really seems to be bugging her. She has been super clingy and having screaming melt downs all over the place these past few days, almost enough to make me think the so called terrible twos have decided to pay us an early visit. Seriously, throwing herself on the floor doing this scream-cry thing at the top of her lungs. What the what. I don’t remember any of the older kids doing this quite so early. With this week’s late nights melting into unsettled and wakeful sleeping, turning into day time where she and Zoe are both out of sorts, I think we are all tired and over it this week. I will be so glad when the weekend is finally here.
The very start of a Tiny Tea Leaves cardi for Zoe. Guess I’m in knitting for winter mode, as last night I decided I wanted to make this to use up some more stash yarn. I always start longing for cold weather and get in the mood for cold weather knitting when there is still too much summer left, and of course as soon as it gets super cold I wonder why I wished summer away so quickly!
Zoe was so excited when I said I was knitting her a cardigan too, but that excitement waned a bit when she saw the colour I was using. She wanted pink, just like Piper, and showed me the tiny ball of leftovers from Piper’s cardi I had sitting in my knitting bag she thought I should use instead. “Me not like green. It is not my favourite.” Oh well, green is what I have, so green is what she’ll get.
Also, thought I’d try linking up with another blog this time! Lots more lovely craftiness with Frontier Dreams KCCO.
