Growth Spurt????

There's a new attitude about meals around here in the last few days. It's a little like hobbit meals. First Breakfast, Second Breakfast, Elevensies, Lunch, Bottle for Nap, Afternoon Snack, Tea, Supper, Dinner, Bed time Snack......And then all the snacks in between!
We just can't seem to fill him up! I'm expecting him to grow out of all his clothes in the next few days. Probably while we're traveling.

Before and After

There is a one kid movement afoot in our house. It started with 'I can feed myself' and quickly shifted into 'I don't need a spoon'. Today it centered on 'feed me now'. He started eating when he got up this morning and didn't stop until I put him down for his nap.
Here he's spreading oatmeal in his hair in anticipation of his first real haircut. I did such a slack job on his bangs last week that I decided it was time to go for the whole thing.



He did really well, he sat still in the chair for a very long time though he looked in every direction the whole time. It's a big place with lots going on after all.

I didn't get the cabinet closed yesterday and it was discovered, of course. He spent over 15 minutes hiding out in there playing with the pots and pans.

I finished some knitting. This is the Ribbon Lace Scarf from Knitty.com. I was worried about having enough yarn, so I made it a repeat narrow than the pattern. Then I bought an extra skein after all. It's about 7 feet long now that I've pinned it out.

Then I decided to make Kevin a pair of felted clogs. I started with the largest size, but after hearing some felting stories I started over with the medium. I think they'll work well. I also made a pair for Mom for her birthday. They are very pretty but turned out about an inch too long so I don't know how much she'll wear them.

Was there a contest?

So seems like I had a contest running, I finally remembered. Random number generator picks Alison of Alianne Knits.

I haven't taken many pictures lately, but here's my favorite from the last couple of weeks. I have since butchered his bangs with another trim.

Etsy Update

I just wanted to let you know that I've updated my Etsy shop. I've added yarn bowls, whisk bowls, and mugs. There's still a couple of days to get items shipped to the west coast, and almost a week to get items out to the east coast.
