And I finished a project too. These socks were my holiday travel knitting.

Yarn-Dream in Color Classy, size 2 needles
Pattern is improvised, four stitch cables alternating 4 and 6 rows between twists.
It's really nice to make socks with worsted weight yarn, they go so quickly!
Little Sky Sock from Cat Bordhi's
New Pathways for Sock Knitters
Yarn is some of my own hand dyed

I love this book so far, it's fun to do something different and the techniques are so logical. The second sock is almost done and they'll fit the boy fine.

6+ months

We just got home from our 6 month doctor visit. He of course flirted with everyone in the office and made them feel really guilty at having to give him shots and make him cry.

Since his last visit he's grown two inches and almost two pounds! He's still napping much less, but he's been happy in the studio watching me work from his stroller a little too. He's eating a few foods. Cereal of course and also pears, squash, and carrots so far. I'll probably add in a few more things in the next week, time for something green I think. The first bite of anything generates a face as if I've just fed him poison.

And as I was sitting here writing he got fussy, when I turned around he had rolled over for the very first time! Yipee!
