Making Progress with Honeycomb

I have finally finished the back and have cast on for the front of Honeycomb. I fumbled my way through the back twisted rib using my bamboo circulars. I wanted to fling it out the window. The points were not sharp enough to do the twisted purled stitches without great effort. Then (big duh) I remembered that I had metal circulars in this size. What a relief! Now I'm flying through that twisted rib with ease.

I came back from my second day training for running and found these lovely little things growing in my yard. Aren't they cute?

Babies Like Yarn Too!

Yes, he's crawling, he's cruising and he's getting into everything including the yarn stash. I couldn't help but laugh yesterday when this little dude was sword fighting his soon to be four year old brother with a straw. Hilarious. Still, it can be quite frustrating trying to keep things tidy when you have a busy baby around.

Regardless of any frustration I love him and savor every moment. I just have to say...isn't he cute in his new socks knitted especially for him by mommy? He has so rarely worn anything on his feet so far that he really seemed engrossed in his new socks. Oh how nice to be so easily entertained.
