yarn along: mi avril











I got both little sweaters done, blocked, and wrapped up before each of my April birthdays!  Millie is showing off her Mi Avril which, while none too roomy, fits nicely for now.  Rosie is wearing an Oriental Lily my mom knit for her (might I note that it's a 6-9 month size dress but a size 2 tunic that still fitting great with leggings!), and Lyddie is wearing the Sorello also knit by my mom.  We have knits coming out our ears and I love it that way. 

I am working on a secret project that I will share more about in the future with FrogTree Ewetopia, and just happily started the final installment of The Magicians trilogy by Lev Grossman.  I am also listening to Sense and Sensibility on CraftLit, just slow listening with only a couple chapters released each week, and catching up on Twelfth Night on Chop Bard.  I forgot how completely witty and incredible Jane Austen's writing is, I had started to kind of underestimate her in my thoughts but she really was a perceptive and unique writer. 

Today is Rosie's second birthday and next week I'll have pictures of her Sibella Babe on her.  <3 and="" be="" birthday="" finding="" font="" for="" gardening="" happening="" house="" in="" knitting="" lots="" meantime="" nbsp="" new="" of="" our="" places="" sigh="" small="" the="" this="" toys="" week="" will="">

  5. I love that picture of the girls all in their knits! And I love that you appreciate hand knits--makes me want to knit even more for them. I have picked out a sweater pattern for Lyddie and Millie for Fall, and Rosie will get the little dress. I am excited about my decision to not pressure myself to knit with the deadline of birthdays but use the changing seasons as my guide. Your Avril turned out so beautifully and looks just right on your little beauty! Can't wait to see Rosie modeling her new one next! Happy Birthday to Rosemary Joy-give her kisses and hugs and a tickle from her Mimi.
