A Flax Pullover in the works, in purple, Erik's favorite color.
While reshuffling Erik's dresser and closet when the cool weather hit, I realized that Erik didn't have any handknit sweaters that fit. Talk about the cobbler's children!
A Chouette owl hat for Erik is almost done, to boot.
Joining Ginny in the Yarn Along today: I'm reading H is for Hawk, by Helen Macdonald, a beautifully written (at times perhaps over-written) memoir about how the author (a Cambridge academic and poet), prompted by the loss of her father, immersed herself in training a young goshawk. Essentially falconry as therapy. A rare turn for me to read two nonfiction works back to back (Love, Nina last week, which I thoroughly enjoyed).
He has gotten so big!
Such a darling boy! Don't feel too sorry for him. Having a sib who's close in age is a wonderful gift. He will love bossing her around and she will worship him! (Guess how I know? To this day Seth and Rachel are the best of friends!)
Now you have handknits for 2 to keep up with! ;-) Fortunately there are some hand-me-downs. I'm planning to start a Harvest for 3 year old DD (hopefully) this week. (sjn821 on Rav)
Both knits look great!and I agree with the other comments - having a sibling will eventually be great for Eric. These first months can be rough on that front but watching your kids play together is really, really nice.
This is so good to hear! I know in the long run it will be good for the kids, but a little tough now during the adjustment period.
