two birds with one blog post

Just so you know, I have been incredibly productive this summer--churning out reams of elegant prose (at work), installing new exterior lights on my house, planting and marveling at a king's crop of Jack-Be-Little pumpkins, waiting for the weather to get hot enough to make my tomatoes turn red, spending all kinds of quality time with the kids (and with Facebook), getting Arlo ready for Kindergarten, and planning a dreamy trip to Vermont (Mara and I leave one week from tomorrow).

In the mean time, certain things have not been getting much attention, one of which is the blog and one of which is my knitting. With this post today, I hereby officially throw my hat back into the ring--both as a blogger and as a knitter.

OMG! It's gorgeous, Jen! I LOVE it so much. What a special, special gift for my little peanut. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I can't wait to see it on him. :)

Tee hee. When I first saw this, I thought, "Wow, that's awesome that she made a sweater for Arlo's bear." Then, last evening, Leah said, "Did you see the sweater Jen made for Emmett?" I'm finally putting it all together.
