Babies, babies...

Just when knitting time is increasingly trickier to come by, friends and family conspire against me and continue to make adorable new babes to populate this world - I'm kidding, of course, continue on with whatever you are doing my friends and family, somehow I will keep up more or less. This latest creation was especially fun to make, because it is an unusual, not-so-pastelly color (my yarn shop lady has been nothing but receptive to my cries for more "edgy" baby wool). I hope the baby girl it is meant for will feel edgy in a good way.

Knitting is still sanity in its repetitiveness to me. One stitch at a time, no shortcuts, no cheating, every mistake shows but also adds character. Wonderfully brainless yet highly kinestetic, it keeps me from feeling too idle, yet doesn't make me feel overwhelmed ever.

Well, just thought I'd get you all to think of fall and winter, now back to watering my tomato plants.

I absolutely love that color - perfect for the transition to fall.
