Sweet Peas

I love this time of year.
Even if we don't keep up with it all.
Even if the weeds take over and eventually win.
We'll still have this time.
Knitting for tonight- kitchener a baby sock toe, then cast on for another pair, a size bigger, my babies grow fast... Oh, and write down the pattern this time, silly designer. Then start the knitting math for new Spud & Chloe design... Knitting math, I love it, once I finally got over the 'sit down and do it' hump. There are times when it takes me way too long to get over that hump. I am easily distracted. Big family = many distractions, but when they look like this, I don't mind so much.
I mean, would you?
This particular child is fortunate to be so cute, because she can be a little, um, 'high maintenance' at times, my biggest motherhood challenge so far. And then she smiles and bats her baby blues at me, and it's all good.

Up next: string beans!

Happy knitting-
ali
