A rare moment of quiet has descended on the household (quiet being a relative term!). The boys (son, husband and friend of son) are playing video games, Abby is working on Sudoku, and Izzy is blissfully sleeping. While I can still hold my eyes open, I’ll try to catch up.
Per requests, here are some detail shots of Izzy’s Christmas outfit:
Stats: Dale of Norway pattern, yarn also Dale (Baby Ull). Definitely worth the trouble!
Santa (more specifically, my husband) was very good to me. With a little help in the advice department from Lorette, he gifted me with six glorious skeins of off white cashmere in sport/dk weight. Of course, I couldn’t hurt his feelings and so I had to cast on right away. The one Faroese shawl I have is out of Silky Wool and is a little lightweight. I’ve been wanting one in a sport weight and this is perfect. I’m whipping right along and at this rate will be done in no time at all. Pictures will follow soon.
My parents left yesterday and called today to say that they arrived safely at home. Thankfully their flights in both directions were picture perfect with no delays and no turbulence. This bodes well for convincing them to fly out again (right, Mom and Dad?).
I’m grateful that we got some good pictures of Izzy because in the last two days, she’s fallen twice! She has a nice scrape on one side of her forehead and a nasty goose egg on the other. The scrape happened on mommy and daddy’s watch, but the goose egg happened on mine. And a bloody nose to boot! I hope they let me watch her again. I promise, I wasn’t knitting or anything while I was supposed to be watching her. She was literally inches away from me when it happened! Man, that kid can move fast.
