"Nuttin but knittin" - that says it all, with an occasional deviation into the real world.

As promised:


My Etsy delivery came today!  Sofee stitch markers!

Aren't they just the cutest ever!  Jillian of "WeeOnes" made them for me.  I saw some buff colored Chi markers in her shop,  and I asked if she could make ones marked more like Sofee.  She asked for more photos of her - from the back, etc, and was most accommodating.   I can't imagine being that talented!!!!  I think they are just adorable!  Each one has her in a different pose.  So cute! I am just delighted with them. 

BG had his first two days of school last week - well 2 hours really.  He was so excited about his new back pack.  (Talk about early education - it had to be packed with extra "pull-ups" a clothes change, and his "lovey")  Here he is all ready to go!  Grandma's taxi service seemed to be quite acceptable, and I didn't hear any complaints about it not being a yellow school bus.  Whew.....

Day one went very well, even though I was a little nervous because there was one little boy wailing uncontrollably when we arrived.  BG seemed unfazed, although that was what he talked about most when I picked him up.  His day recaps are mostly in one words - that I have to somewhat piece together.  At barely 2 yrears of age, sentences are just beginning to form.

Day two was a little more challenging for him, however.  When I picked him up, he had his Eyeore in a strangle hold, and had big tears in his eyes.  He declared himself as "sad" when I asked him what was going on.  According to the teacher, he wanted to go to the "big gym" and play with the ball at a time when it was not allowed.  So.....he started yelling for "Grrrraaaaannnnnndddddmmmmmaaaaa" real loud, and got a little disgruntled with the whole situation.  (Yes - he makes about 14 syllables out of that word!!)  Anyway - I guess he thought I'd come to his rescue and let him do what he wanted.  Hmmmm.....wonder where he got that idea????  I probably need to re-evaluate my grand-parenting skills...... (I'll let ya know how that goes.....)

Oh BG will love school. He looks so ready to go with his backpack.
I love the stitch markers. They are almost as cute as Sofee herself.

These stitch markers are wonderful! I see she has robins. May have to order. The boy looks SO grown with his bookbag. My youngest used to scream bloody murder when I left him --- that is until they served breakfast!

What cute markers! I'll bet they come in handy too. Love the "tree" mittens, the socks and glove, and of course your GS.
