Finished: set of homemade Valentines cards. Cardstock + crinkle scissors + felt scraps + yarn = EASY. I love easy.

Bebe finally agreed to model his new fingerless mitts for Mama’s camera. He loves to take pictures, but lately has started to prefer ‘helping’ me take the pictures. I love that initiative, but it does make documenting my Bebe-knitting a bit tricky. Thank goodness for big, camera-holding pockets and random moments of complete absorption with found objects – like crispy oak leaves on the stairwell.

Lounge pants for Bebe from Haroula in Melbourne, from Etsy’s Australian Flood Relief shop, all proceeds supporting relief/recovery efforts.

My bestest gals: for dancing and new houses, for adult beverages and virtual knitting groups. For the great image of someone flailing around in happy dance mode.

What has made your heart laugh or sing today?

no singing for me right now — just one of those little periods life offers — but it’s so happy-making to see bebe, whether he’s got mitts on or not. πŸ™‚

Oh, you should hear the crazy things coming out of his mouth these days, it would make you giggle. A lot. “Mama,” he says as we’re getting into the car, “I don’t like your rice.” Which is a huge sentence for him, and kind of random. “Umm…” I think back to when we had fried rice two days previously, “right: I should not have tried to sneak in the lima beans. I’m sorry.” Apparently he had been dwelling on my sneakiness for days.
