I shall begin . . .

. . . by apologizing for my silence with flowers.

Now that I'm back to work, I feel like there's a whole lotta nothin' to share. Just the gentle and sometimes harried rhythm of day to day life. Sure, funny stuff happens now and then. But is anyone aside from Sweet Pea, Mr. Wonderful and I going to find the thought of my little girl accidentally discovering blowing raspberries on mommy's tummy as funny as we did? Probably not. I'll get used to it, and get back into practice, and we'll all be happy again. For now, Knitting!

Sweet Pea's Strawberry Hill (I call it Smocking Jacket) is just about done.

I'm picking up the stitches for the button band tonight, actually.

So the end is very, very near for this one. I tried it on Sweet Pea, just to see if it would fit this morning. It fits! It's going to make a great fall jacket. (Hell, given how cool this summer has been, it will be a great morning jacket!)

While the pieces for that one blocked, I cast on for another project. This one is good work knitting. Lots of stocking stitch.

It'll be adorable when it's done! For now, I'll let you wonder and imagine.
