look, ma, one hand!

Thank you for all the lovely comments about my lovely boy. He is sleeping in my arms right now, so I thought I'd go through my Flickr photos to find some things to put into a catch-up blog post. One handed typing, so please excuse any brevity in my writing. (Or perhaps that will come as a relief?)

I spun some golden deliciousness. 60/30/10 merino/bamboo/nylon, from Hello Yarn. I used to think that I didn't like bamboo blends, but when prepped well (as is all of Adrian's fiber), it turns out that I love it.

Little mittens that he never wore. Whoops. Too small now. (And he's become a hand sucker, anyway.)

I apologize for not giving full project details for everything in this post, but it's a bit overwhelming to try to do one handed. More information is available on my Ravelry projects page.

He was only 6 days overdue. This blog post is... well, do we really need to count the days? (Weeks? MONTHS?) Here's a tiny bit of catch-up:

Miles Sebastian (you can call him Milo) was born on July 22, 2011. That makes him 11 weeks old. It's fun to look at the older photos of him here, and see how tiny and mushy he was. Now he's a whopping 12 pounds (started out just under 8), full of personality, smiles, and coos.

Knitting and spinning are going very slowly around here, though I have a few projects that are just about done, and am making good progress on some longies. I even have plan to cast on for something for me -- imagine!

I will continue to blog. I have gotten good at typing with one hand, but posts will probably not be frequent. I'm still here. +1
