In the cool of the night our little girl is fast asleep. I think she may be dreaming of sunshine, of a day spent running around outside in and out of the shade, chasing daisies, taking pictures on Mama’s camera and the stickiness of cherry ice-cream.
After a week couped up with tiny nose pressed to the patio doors watching drips trickle slow and fast down the glass, she had energy for ‘out’ and some to spare.
So today we’ve danced barefoot on the lawn, peeped through gazebo trellis, chased Dada and our ball and chattered away all the time.
And I have finally, finally finished (subject to blocking and buttons) a little cardigan I’ve been designing for Kitty since about March. I’ve had to rip back at least once to add some extra length for our ever growing little girl – a tip to speed up the design process to slightly less than four months if ever there was one.
From the brief seconds in which I persuased a Kit more interested in her scrambled eggs into trying it on, I think it should fit, and I’m expecting it to grow a smidgen with blocking anyway and there’s even half a chance I’ll write up the pattern before she entirely grows out of it.
