Thank you for your comments on this post. They were so very appreciated, and I'm pleased to report a miniscule shift away from terrible and back towards delightful in the toddler stakes. Small steps.
As you can see, I'm currently indulging in another Alexander McCall Smith novel, the second in the Isabel Dalhousie series. How lovely it is to be wandering Edinburgh's streets again. I had a short stint living there in the late '90s and so loved it. I had better read fast, because a small book order has been placed following some recommendations on the toddler crisis, and I'm sure next week's Yarn Along will reveal some much more serious, creased-forehead-type reading.
I recently told a blog friend who reckons she's not much of a knitter and can only manage knit and purl (isn't it all just knit and purl?) that she could knit a hat like the one my girls have been flaunting this winter, and I've promised to write up the pattern. That green knitting in the photo above is me trying to remember it. Hopefully you'll see it here soon.
