A blog about family, knitting and the occasional diaper...

Spring time

Can you hear the birds chirping? The sound of water dripping from meting snow? Yes, spring is here!!! It came so suddenly that I never saw it coming. And now it's here. And I'm happy.
See the crocuses?? Proof!! Proof of spring!!! And my tulips were growing beneath the snow. I'm always amazed that plants know when spring has arrived and grow under snow. 

Miss coconut started daycare last week, and along with my broken heart, this has resulted in a cold and a stomach virus. I've never seen so much vomit. Ever. Out her nose, everywhere. 4 hours straight, non stop. It was an experience.  She's adapted fairly well to daycare but is nursing like crazy at home, so I suspect she's dealing with attachment issues. As I am. I feel terrible every time I leave her there. And I hate putting her in paper diapers instead of cloth. But the daycare doesn't do cloth diapers. 

But here she is, on a glorious spring day, getting the hang of walking outside (weird how she walks better inside than outside). 

And for some spring inspired knitting: market shawl. I like the easy pattern and love the Noro Cashmere Island yarn. Shades of fuschia, teal, black and navy. Yum. This was my "before knitting a Clapotis" project.

Nice shawl! I love anything made with Noro- the colors are great and the yarn is luscious.

p.s. she looks so cute toddling on the sidewalk!
