If you have to be on the floor with crayons and paper, 
why not try to get some work done?

I'm thinking of using GGH Cumba for this sweater.  (ravelry link)  
Any other suggestions?

Happy Wednesday!

I had a very fussy baby today who needed to be held.  Thankfully I had a great book to keep me happy while I rocked her, so I spent my day reading most of Three Bags Full by Leonie Swan.  This is our shop's book club selection for the August meeting, so if you pick up a copy be sure to join our discussion!  Any wool lover will get a kick out of the sheep detectives.  

Big sister is modeling the Sweetheart Pullover from Knitting for Baby by Melanie Falick and Kristin Nicholas.  This book is a great resource for baby and toddler projects.  The patterns are very well written and a joy to follow.  I'll post a clearer picture someday, but she just happend to be wearing it when I posed them together!
