(extra credit for naming the song).
The forsythia are blooming. That means it REALLY is Spring now. Even crocus and snowdrops will come up in the snow, but if the forsythia have started, well, it's really getting there. 'Bout time!
My lovely sister has had her beautiful baby boy. Yay! There is much happiness and cooing over pictures in my house - my children adore babies. Even the teenage boy (especially the teenage boy?). And I finally managed to send them the knitted gift for the baby, which arrived the day after the baby did, so, perfect!
I made him Sheldon. Turns out the baby is a "him", which we didn't know ahead of time, so it worked out well (figured Sheldon would be good for a girl, as well. We try not to be stereotypical.) He was a fun knit (Sheldon, not the baby) and really went very quickly. I had finished one sock first, so had a little experience with the double pointed needles, but he was pretty straightforward. There's lots of increases and decreases, but they were all on www.knittinghelp.com so really quite fun!
So now I'm all excited to try baby booties, but I haven't cast on or even chosen a pattern yet. It's the perfect start to spring!
However, spring also means soccer practice, so I need to go get dinner moving so we can celebrate THAT particular Spring ritual.
