Sorry about that, folks, and thank you SO MUCH for all of your well-wishes and congratulations. No time at the moment to reply to each individually, but I read and cherished them all. They really got me through a rough couple of first-days-home. As to the long silence–in addition to the general craziness, there was a very strange bug with my wordpress installation that took some time to track down. We’re all still here, and well, and stumbling our blind way through the newborn phase again.
I wish I had more fibery goodness to share with you than I do. The baby is putting a predictable strain on our finances, so all that crazy yarn-club joining I did back in February is it for yarn acquisition around here. Which is fine–I have plenty of yarn, after all, and it’s nice to get little pick-me-ups in the mail every so often.
(Jacob enjoys it, too.) Life with a three-year-old and a newborn is having a predictable effect on my knitting time, too. We’re taking plenty of pictures, though. So how about I distract you with a few of those while we all wait for regular knitting content again?
Jacob took this one, actually. I had the tripod set up, and he figured out how to locate us through the viewfinder and click. Toddler-proof digital camera for Hanukkah, maybe?
Here’s a better look at Daniel, from last week. Since then, he’s gotten a terrible case of baby acne. (Poor thing.) Finally, a sneak peek of the little knitting I’ve managed to accomplish.
You can see more pictures of the baby and the family, if you’re so inclined, on flickr. I’ve been doing a self-portrait project since Daniel was born, and I’m enjoying it. I’m sure knitting will return here eventually, but until then: Who’s going to Rhinebeck? Other than Daniel and me, I mean.
