(My boy, the rockstar. Oh, and Grace has decided that since her name was “Apple Dumpling” when she was a fairy, that she is reverting back to that name from today)
It is good to know that high production rates are not confined to one side of my family gene pool. As you may know, my sister is a veritable crochet machine; my father, whose wildly successful painting blog is updated several times a week with new paintings, instruction, and time-lapse films for each painting; and now, my mother is knitting at the speed of light… I am talking serious production here… a couple of garments a week!!!
So, while I’m filing this as a Yarn Along, it isn’t strictly my yarning… but my mothers. Having said that, I am going to learn to knit this year and cardigans and sleeveless tops are my aim.
On the book front, I’m reading “The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying” and read “Room” by Emma Donoghue in a day- I couldn’t put it down. It’s rare you read a book like that…
(there is only so much of sitting in a highchair that a boy can handle (approximately three minutes in our house) But he is still so hilariously cute when he has a tantrum. Note Apple Dumpling making a hasty exit)
Got to love a crafty family! And the kids are just adorable. Love Apple Dumpling! What a cute name. ~ Elizabeth
It’s a rare gift for a child to remember her fairy name, so the child formerly known as Grace is clearly a wise one (and I can see why Apple Dumpling was chosen for her, with those lovely cheeks!) I know you will become an accomplished knitter with your talents, but you are producing right now at the speed of light, with your finest display of art in your happy children! 🙂
my goodness your family! it is unfair to ask us to look at (or listen to) handknits made when there are two gorgeous babies in the photo.
the littles are wonderful – took me a while to get to the sweaters!
beautiful sweaters – I love handknit sweaters – now to figure out how to make them!
Tantrums and mohawk befitting a rock star. His future is bright.
