Nothing is more important to you right now…

…than looking at these photos of adorable chidren:

He gets very excited about all the yarn, and expresses his appreciation for knitters through happy wailing.

She expresses her love of yarn by cutely sticking her fingers in her mouth and watching your every move with a hint of a smile on her face.

I took these pics last week but needed to make sure I had permission from both the mamas to post. And look at me, I went to knit night last night too – a whole two weeks in a row, someone stop the presses! I am going to try to keep going because I like seeing everyone’s knitting and all the yarn and needles (for some reason I never buy on a Wednesday, though – i talk myself out of it and then go back on Friday, heh). But I always feel like I don’t know what to contribute to the conversation. I don’t have kids or a spouse, and talking about my dissertation makes me want to twitch and break out into hives. So mostly I sit and try not to say anything very stupid. Baby steps.

And it would just go figure that when I finally do finish the springtime-y perfect-for-April-in-Project-Spectrum socks, we get snow overnight. Ah well, I will prefer to think of it as, “more time in which I can wear the handknitted socks and sweaters I finally finished.” Yes.

This weekend, I predict lots of chocolate-eating, knitting on Poppy, and possibly casting on for something new depending on how the arms and wrists hold up. Happy knitting!
