Life marches on, as they say, and things at chez moi have been busy but fun. The Bigs have been taking a weekly nature class down in Ft. Lauderdale and Talia has been growing big and fast. Today she is 207 days old, or 6 months and 24 days. She is a proficient crawler and can pull herself to standing and cruise along the furniture. I’m serious. The last couple of days she has been practicing standing without holding onto anything. I anticipate walking by Christmas (or the New Year at the latest).
And finally I’ve started been knitting again. I cast on and finished this pretty shawl to throw over Talia’s shoulders if we ever get any cooler weather here.
I didn’t really have much of this hand spun from last year’s TdF so basically it’s just the first half of Grandmother’s Favorite Dishcloth, knited until I ran out of yarn. It’s soft and cozy and should keep her shoulders nice and warm when those cold northern winds start to blow through and bring the temperature down below 75°. And yes that is considered cold down here. Stop laughing, it really is! Really!
