What a relief that it is finally December! November brought us Malcolm’s first cold, followed immediately by his first virus. The poor baby was sick for so long it felt like he’d never be well. But now we can finally turn on the holiday music because we are all well and rested and ready to really get into the spirit of the season. This past weekend I turned on the fireplace (sadly, it’s a DVD. But it’s a pretty good substitute until we have a real one of our own),
and I got to work on these warm winter mitts. It is especially slow going these days, since the baby discovered he loves yarn. I had to finally give him some of his own, which is now unwound and wrapped around the coffee table. I’m hoping this is a sign that he will like knitting as much as I do one day.
We had a beautiful light snowfall that inspired us to go for a nice long family walk up to our local winter farmer’s market. We took the community path for part of the way. It’s quiet there and you can hear the snow falling.
We’re looking forward to lots more gorgeous winter days.
