The Amazing Adventures of Tom and Bel

Perfectly happy little boy, right? Don't be fooled by his brave exterior:

We started summer camp today and already, there's been a serious sports injury:

Let us all take a moment of silence to acknowledge the dangers of mixing kickball and giddy little boys.
Alas, poor Superman pants. I knew them well.
(This knowledge may have something to do with the number of times I washed these puppies. The disintegration may also have something to do with that number. They were favorite pants and in heavy rotation.)


In knitting news, I'm still working on unbloggable stuff, but I'm so excited that these arrived today:

For those of you who are unfamiliar with this masterwork, this is Maria Erlbacher's awesome series of twisted stitch dictionaries (Traditional Knitting Patterns from the Styrian Enns River Valley):

While I do not speak or read a lick of German, the book is full of beautifully clear charts that should be easy enough to work. If I can get mon petit monstre to sleep tonight, I hope to find a few minutes to play with these.

If you're interested, I ordered these from the kind folk at DAW. Again, I don't speak any German, but the transaction was speedy and painless, despite my communication handicap.

  • That little one cracks me up to no end. You all need to stop by on a walk-a-bout again because:
    1. You need a big fragrant rose bouquet (because I wasn't the one who left roses on your windshield!);
    2. The marbles have been refreshed!

    Your knitting completely amazes me. Wicked talent.
