here is a very very bad night-time webcam pic of my current progress. It is faintly possible to see that the cast on edge is a dark purply burgundy, the middle rows are red, and the current working edge is a royal purple. This colourway basically cycles through a navy/purple/red/purple/navy kind of thing, with not much of the navy (more like a dusky navy-ish berry tone). See why it gives me the happy?
The mums will no doubt notice a small pair of legs in the hallway. At almost 8:30pm Miss 3 3/4 is still struggling to come to terms with the necessity of bedtime. She has been struggling with a variety of things recently – her turn to unpack the knives and forks from the dishwasher, helping to pack up toys, having a shower, getting dry, getting dressed, cleaning her teeth, sleeping in her own bed, putting her plate/bowl/spoon/fork/cup/rubbish away…. Many things in her life are onerous and aggravating, and she does her best to share her frustrations with us – at length, and at volume. She has come late to the tantrum-throwing stage, but is making up for lost time by vigorously pursuing both quantity and quality. We are grateful for the practice our first daughter gave us on dealing with ferocious tantrums.
But for now, if you will excuse me, Grey’s Anatomy is on the tv and I have some knitting to do.
