The Boy is nearly ONE!

Almost one year has past since my precious second baby was born.
In honor of the occasion, his big brother drew him a picture and then we made this:

The big kiddo is very satisfied with his Lion drawing. I have NEVER seen a drawing I've liked more. We both want to look at it as often as possible. So, for a birthday gift to his brother he will transfer the very image you see here to a t-shirt from basic brilliance. I think we'll also iron the lion image to this hoodie for the big boy.

We will have grandparents, personalized cupcakes, flowers and margaritas for the grown-ups.

This milestone has me knitting furiously so I can have both boys beaming in their matching Luggy Bonnets for the occasion. Of course, it will hardly be cold enough on October 1 for wool hats with earflaps. Nevermind that.

I won't go on and on about the birthday boy and how cute. cute. cute. he is.
But take a look at this:

In other news, I am very excited to say that I have joined Zimmermania.

There isn't space here to list all the things I love about Elizabeth Zimmerman. This exciting KAL led me to my favorite chair today, where I blissfully reread much of Knitter's Almanac. She is so gifted at expressing all the things I love about knitting. I want to find myself in her schoolhouse in the woods, sitting bedside her and a cozy fire, knitting something complicated (with complete ease) while she tells me stories that make me laugh.

As with most of my really good knitting stuff, my Elizabeth Zimmerman books came from Granny. I've enjoyed reading them for years, but I've never knit a pattern from them. The Zimmermania site is such a source of inspiration. I was particularly smitten with the Fishtrap Swatchcap knit by Fig and Plum.

I only have one more day to make a final decision about what I'll knit. I want to cast on with everyone else on Saturday the 23rd.

Sleep beckons.
Oh, look at me. I am already addicted to your blog. I love, love, love Luke's lion picture. It is an incredible bit of art work! You should have it framed. I love the t-shirt idea.
Happy Birthday to your sweet boy!! My baby girl is having her FIFTH birthday party the same day! Waaahhhhhhh!!

LOVE that lion!! Genius artwork!
Happy birthday, and he is very cute. Love the lion picture, I agree you should frame it. I've framed some of my kids drawings and have them on a wall, they love showing everyone which ones they drew.
Your right, you do have cute children and I love the lion!Panopticon( made the most adorable baby sweater from a Zimmerman pattern.
What a fantastic lion drawing! I'm thinking about knitting some booties for Francie. Wish me luck.
