something to aspire to...

I haven't read Elizabeth Zimmerman's books. In fact, I haven't read anything but childrens' books for a while. I like to completely immerse myself in my reads, and there's not much time for that with two littles running around. So instead, I knit. My mom knits too, and she reads. And she just so happened to read some Elizabeth Zimmerman. She told me Elizabeth Zimmerman had been known to knit while reading. That's some crazy-cool multitasking skills, if you ask me. Now, I don't think I'm comparable to Elizabeth Zimmerman at all--trust me, I'm not!-- but I do think that knitting while reading aloud to children is definitely something to aspire to!

PS- as if I don't already have enough cast on, I decided to also add the the list a pair of pants for Maximus. So cute!! :)

Be well!

We spend last weekend with Annie and Todd and baby Remi, and as a result, the whole family was tattooed! Madelynn and Maximus took advantage of Uncle Todd's tattooing skills, and so did Karl and I on a more permanent level. Max's, however, proved to be the most photo worthy even if it did wash off the bathtub later. :)

who'da thunk?

i never thought plain cheerios could taste so good. that is, until they were fed to me by these wonderfully chubby little hands. suddenly those little cardboard o's were heart-warmingly delicious.

more knits!

i am currently working on a few projects, only two of which are photo worthy though--a pair of cabled legwarmers for madelynn and a wool soaker for maximus. hope this post finds you well. :)
