ahhh, it feels so good ....

I am so glad I am knitting again! My pictures aren't great because my camera went dead today so I charged it and then had to use flash. I know there isn't a lot of progress on the sock, but I got to get away this weekend with my girls for a shopping trip. We had a great time, and I did manage to get a little bit of other knitting done in the motel room. I am really enjoying this sock. I really love the yarn!

I also got Stephanie's new book. I was so impressed with the picture on her blog (and a zillion others) that now I want to go to New York and find the same place and take a sock picture. For now, my sock will have to be content to show itself on the book. Hopefully I will not be on the same sock when I finally make it there!

The other day, I was startled quite a bit by this:

I am not exactly sure what went through my mind, but I was quite taken aback until I saw the grin. He loves to startle me in mischevious ways and I have been grateful almost every day of his life for how creative and typical he is. We've always had such great, great support, but those few "professionals" along the way who told us that these kids don't require much attention in the early years have been proven wrong. And hey, if it wasn't for some of the shenanigans, who knows if I'd have started knitting again!

He's cracking me up! Love the look on his face.
I just started the Harlot's new book and have enjoyed it so far.
Love the sock!!

That picture is awesome. I probably did that to myself a few times at that age, too.

The sock looks great! And the pic is just too funny! I laugh every time I see it!

Congrats on getting the new Stephanie book.

Your little guy is just adorable! That would have startled me, too. His grin is precious!
