Knitting all the way home


I counted 10 take offs and landings during my bi-coastal Africa trip. A total of about 36 hours in planes and at least 20 waiting for boarding. That turned out to be exactly what I needed to knit this sweater for an18 month old baby. Of course Faro is barely 10 months, but he is in the 99.6th percentile for length and only slightly less for weight. So, with sleeves rolled up, he wore it at Easter. He didn’t protest, sigh of relief, as he had other fish to fry, like negotiating the xylophone hammer with his older and bossy cousin Norah.

Easter dinner in Berlin (MA) with Sita’s in laws – everything brought and bought and cooked and cleaned up by our hosts so that I could focus entirely on being Oma Dutch. It is good to be home.
