My pirate turned 5 yesterday. He is trying very hard to grasp that a birthday goes for the whole day and is not the party, which confusingly is on Sunday. It is one of the many brain teasers that will come his way.
The pirate was born before he was meant to and had a difficult start to life. This is the first thing I ever knitted him. On an apple.
This is the 5 year old.
how amazing is that!
and the life that ended - it isn't too dramatic. I am frogging two projects today. My Charade socks and my upstairs shawl. The socks are just because I don't really like the pattern with this yarn. I am going to try the Knitty pattern Monkey. They look lovely. And the shawl, I have made so many mistakes on the shawl I am beyond fudging the repairs. It is time to start again. This knitting in lace weight yarn is more challenging than I expected.
and now I have grandparents and aunts about to arrive and really need to vacuum and take my weekly pilgrimage to the markets.
