A is now a month old. (A month? Already?) The postpartum fog has lifted, we're getting a little more sleep. C has stopped asking us to put "baby back in" and started getting upset if her sister isn't with us at times when she usually is.
I've also gotten to do a little knitting. Finally.
A year ago, I knitted two sleeveless sweaters for C.
Two sweaters, different yarn weights, both with the owl pattern down the left side. C has just recent stopped hoo-hooting and pointing to her belly when anyone mentions a sweater.
While she's actually lost a pound or two since then, she's grown several inches. She's gone from a chunk-toddler to a slim and graceful little girl. She needed a sweater that went below her belly button.
This pattern, the Milo, is a dream to work with and easy to customize. I look forward to knitting Milo sweaters for them as they grow. Perhaps they won't all have owls, but for now, we're cozy and warm in these simple little sweaters.
