My baby's got a shiner!

Okay, it's not much of a shiner, but still! To up her street cred: she got it in a dust up in the alley after ganking a bitch.

It's looking a touch more purple as of bedtime tonight. A lot less swollen though. Poor girl!

Heeeeere's Sweet Pea!
You can actually see the purple above her eye a little better in that one.
And as you can see, she's so over it. Happy and playful again. Be that as it may, I haven't let her cruise on her own since yesterday afternoon. She's a little worried about falling over again, and I'm a LOT worried about the state of her face if she does.

Aside from soothing my daughter after her forcible meeting of eyebrow and coffee table, I have done some stuff this week!

I finished up the Owlings I had on the go for Canadacole's assistant.

Since I felt that the thumb on the ones I made previously were too wide, I decreased the number of stitches in the thumb on these. Verdict? A touch snug. Work the thumb as written, or try decreasing by one stitch, but 2 is too many.

I made 2 more pocket monsters after completely effing up the face on the little pink one. I threw it out. It was awful.
And this I finished last week, but hadn't blogged yet.

Confection. Again, a Rav only pattern. Sigh.
Cute, easy. I'd make it again. I might, actually.
Yarn: Luna - decent stuff. I don't know how it wears yet, or how it will survive the wash, or any of that.
I figure this shrug will make a great transition piece. Especially since Sweet Pea has numerous short sleeve onsies, and only three long sleeves. I don't intend to buy her more - spring is right around the corner, and transitional pieces should carry her through.

Ha ha! Chunky used to constantly have various face bruises due to cruising/walking mishaps. I was convinced someone was going to report us for beating him! His official one-year-old portrait shoot--he's sporting a wicked goose egg!

Sweet! So I'm not the only one then.

What an adorable little girl... even with the black eye. I was not as active, but my sister had bruises and other injuries throughout her entire childhood, and she turned out OK.
