Here’s the little stinker in her new dress. Sister emailed to say that she made the dress in a size 5, so no wonder it’s big.
Anna’s such a pill; right now when we want to take her picture she says “Cheese,” and rears her head back. I have to time my button-pushing perfectly to get a shot that includes her head and not just her chin.
Anna would also like me to point out that she’s wearing her very most favorite “light shoes” in the picture. Yeah, Grandma bought her a pair of shoes with little lights in them. She’s been wearing them to death this summer.
In knitting news, well, I am 7 rows shy of starting the toe of my second Embossed Leaves sock. Woot! Deleting 20G each of data off of a couple of hard drives on a slow computer makes for a good amout of knitting time. It helps that I can read my sock too, so no chart looking-at to slow me down.
Up next in the knitting queue is adding those needed rows to the first Reid sleeve, and then knitting the second sleeve. It will not go as quickly as the first one did; that one was knitted when Anna was on vacation for 3 days. Ahh, I remember those wonderful times. No one demanding “Mommy mommy mommy mommy mommy.”
Also, I think sister deserves her very first pair of handknit socks in return for the dress. So I’ll put that in the queue right after Husband’s socks.
And didn’t I say something about a sweater?
