Why my kid is the Awesome

Scene: our living room. We've just finished singing "Baa Baa Black Sheep." Babe looks over at book with picture of sheep, then at previous page with picture of cat and mouse.

Babe: (pointing @ mouse) Duckie?
Me: No, babe that's a mouse.
Babe: Duckie!
Me: Nah, hon - do we know any songs about a duckie?
Babe: (to the tune of Baa Baa Black Sheep) Baa baa duckie...

In actual knitting-related news (gasp!), I've just received a review copy for my latest pattern, coming out in the Fall issue of Twist Collective. I'm sooo excited! The layout is gorgeous, the model is perfect, and I'm super thrilled to be a part of this awesome magazine. Yay!

Where I Have Been

Originally uploaded by cmu204
Sauvie Island, just outside Portland, is mostly farmland -- including several wonderful nurseries and you-pick farms. We've gone just about every other week. The baby runs around and 'helps' (i.e., eats herself purple) and the big kids are focused for about an hour and a half, which is enough time to get a couple of flats filled.
It is a really lovely outing. Of course, it means a good bit of work afterwards -- washing, hulling, freezing and/or prepping something for us to eat right now.

Which mostly means there's been very little knitting this summer. A few swatches here and there, and I'm currently working on a project for one of my favorite LYS, but this has mostly been the summer of fruity deliciousness. I can't complain, but I do miss it a bit.
