So I got out my crochet hooks and checked in with Ravelry to find some fun things. And then I got to work.
Last week I finished this little sweater as much as I will until I think he is ready to wear it. It may fit just the way it is or I may be adding to it. He grows so fast I have no idea. It was super quick, easy and so sweet I want to eat it. I made it from the yarn I had left over from the cloche I felted last year. Such wonderful wool!
This hat I started on Saturday and just finished up. I used two strings of sock yarn to get the gauge and I think it will fit him by the winter. It is a merino bamboo blend. Yummy.
All of this is a little hard for me to admit as I have always been a die hard summer fan. But hormones, humidity, and age (Oh my!) have taken their toll. I wonder if this is what people mean when they say you will become more moderate as you age?

The Bug and I are slow roasting tomatoes today. Sydney tried to help but we decided that we have enough fur in our diets, thank you very much.
The big news is the Bug rolled over this morning while I was in the shower and his Papa was watching him. Then later he did it again for me. Weirdly, this made me almost cry. It is so cool to watch him develop and change. Every moment brings something new.
I tried to capture a roll on a little video but, of course, he is holding back. However, I am posting the video anyway because he is so flippin' cute I just can't help myself. He is a little screechy and the sound quality is bad so turn your speakers down a bit. Enjoy!
