It's crochet... it's a start. Step one toward one resolution.

I also looked up my local blood donation sites. Now I just need to find a time to go without the baby.

Recent Knitting- One

The first project started and finished in 2010: Elijah.

Size 2 needles
Elann Lara- less than one ball, what a deal!

One of Elliott's baby-buddies turned 1 last weekend, and that means knits were in order. I've been wanting to make Ysolda's Elijah since I first saw him. Colten's birthday was the perfect reason. We had to leave the party before the presents were opened, so I haven't heard whether Elijah was a hit, but I was very pleased with how he turned out and can highly recommend this pattern. I got some yarn to make one for Elliott.

A boy can have a purple elephant toy, right?

Big Day

- Elliott's cutting tooth number 3!
- I'm officially going to be an auntie!
- Finished an Elijah! (Photos to come)
- Missed a call from best friend in Australia- Doh!
- Hung out at favorite knit shop, Twist, Yarns of Intrigue.
- Elliott has figured out how to tip up a bottle so that he can actually drink it.
- Elliott pointed at Senor and said very clearly, "Da da." That's it, folks. Da da wins.
