Little Majolica by Kristin Nichols from Interweave Knits, Fall 2006
This was the first project I've knitted quickly since Sigourney was born. I knitted it up in about a week and a half. It's an easy, pleasing fair isle pattern and I will definitely knit another one. This particular sweater was a gift for my niece. I'm happy with how it turned out, although my seaming skills need more practice.
A close up.
Is it time for five month old pic-spam? Yes...
At five months, my daughter is wonderful and so much fun. If she had her way, she would stand up all day long.
At the moment, I am a single mom and always looking for things Sigourney and I can do together. Montreal has the most beautiful Botanical Gardens. I bought an annual pass so that we could go every week. As this is my first summer in the city in over a decade, I find that I need to be outside as much as possible. The Gardens are terrific because I can pass an entire day there. Even better, there's artistic inspiration to be found in the plants and flowers.
This one reminded me of a fishtail braid.
Here is the Bonsai greenhouse.
These last plants I photographed because the name cracked me up. Bloody Begonias. They belong in a Harry Potter book or herbology class.
