A long weekend in Michigan

On Friday, after lunch, we loaded up the car and started the drive, listening to podcasts and chatting. I knit on my pink socks. Cooper napped, and then woke up happy. We unpacked and settled in a bit, once we arrived to the adorable rental house...

On a would-have-been due date

I made breakfast and coffee, I checked messages from a few friends who knew this day was meaningful for us. Cooper and I ran errands, he waved and said "hi," in his soft voice to everyone we passed and held on tightly to a penny while he sat in the cart.

Creativity check & finished projects, mid March 2021

I finished a pair of socks for Cooper. They are much too large for him to wear this winter. I know that I knit at a loose gauge, and as such, nearly always size down my needles, but I didn't this time, and sure enough, they are rather large toddler socks. Oh well, too big means they will be of future use...
