It's been a relatively decent morning otherwise -- the kids have mostly entertained each other, which is a new development for which I am profoundly grateful. They can sometimes get through an entire half hour without anyone bursting into tears. I managed to get them fed and dressed, did some cleaning, and watched an episode each of Eureka and Haven. And now Anand is down for his nap, so I can maybe even get a bit of yarn work done. (I can't do any while he's awake, as he consistently tries to grab it out of my hands. Pay attention to meeee, mama!!) I made a little slipper for Kavi a few days ago, and haven't had a chance to make its mate yet. Maybe today. I'm also almost done with the elephant hat...just a few more rows.
When the hat's done, I already know what I want to start next -- arm warmers! These Lovisa arm warmers, in huckleberry and toasted almond, I think. Blue Sky Alpaca Melange. Can't wait. It's still 88 degrees here, but autumn is coming, I'm pretty sure. I like that it has a small amount of colorwork -- enough to lend interest, but not so much that the project goes really slowly. Perfect! And I just love working with alpaca; it's so luxuriously soft. Thank you, alpaca farmers!
I should probably also make an elephant scarf (and maybe mittens?) to match the hat, but first I need to finish it and see if the hat actually fits Kavi. It may be too big for this year, in which case, I can wait a while to make the matching scarf.
