My knitting and my reading are moving in a small direction this week. I have been able to spend some extended time with our tiny person which has been so wonderful. I am getting to know him, figuring out the different cries, noticing what helps and what does not (very important). I have to say that I am not anxious about his fleeting moments of distress the way I was when our own daughter was tiny. I guess that is one of the reasons why everyone says it is so much fun to be a grandparent.
The other night, I knew we had a short time before mom and dad would arrive, not enough time for a bottle or another nap but we needed a distraction. I pulled out this fun book and we spent ten minutes reading and looking at the pages. He was so engaged! I only wish I could have seen his little face.
On my needles this week are some tiny knits too. I finished a baby hat last weekend and immediately cast on another one with these small bits of yarn. Yesterday I purchased the new patterns from Tin Can Knits and cast on a small sleeve. I don’t often knit with dpns but I am off to a good beginning.
