Birthday Update

Turning two happens only once in a lifetime, and it looks like Sophia celebrated in style with the Shaw family CocoaCola cake. Missing in the photo is her daddy as he captured the moment for the rest of us. Big brother David looks like he's admonishing Sophia, and Daniel looks bored with the whole affair. I'd give anything to know what Jill is saying and what Catherine is thinking!
"Candles are hot, Sophia!"

This project didn't get finished in time to make it into the birthday box, but it'll be winging its way to Chicago soon.
Ruffled Hat and Socks

Jill called again this evening to say that Sophia has been wearing her Rosebud Hat. I think it suits her perfectly.
"I'm two!"

Today's also the day for a TUSAL update, and if you look closely you can see the clippings from the leaves on Sophia's hat. There's also some embroidery thread in there, but the yarn kind of hides it.....

Sophia is a very pretty birthday girl. You've knit some sweet gifts to send to the kids. Each time you post an update photo of your TUSAL project I think I'm going to have to try that. Thanks.

Your knitted hats (and socks) are really cute. The rosebud had is precious. How fun to have a pretty little girl to knit these fanciful things for.

Hiya sweet darlin! God that little one looks like she was kissed by an Angel... Either that, or she is hiding those wings somewhere...

Congratulations on your 44th anniversary. The arch is a nice addition to your garden. I like clematis and the variety of colors.

Congratulations on winning Pats nest. I didn't see the post in time to enter.
