Just a quick post today as I've got a million errands to run. The worst/best one is my daughter's 1 year check up today. On the good side, I'll get to see her current weight (heavy) and height (seems tall). The bad side is the using her leg as a pincushion for shots. Ick. Well, my son will be relieved it's not him. This weekend was busy with daughter's first birthday party. I got a free cake at our local Safeway. I ordered chocolate frosting on chocolate cake. It was delicious, and allowed for the requisite, adorable cake face and hair shots of the wee girl. My son didn't really get the idea that the gifts weren't his; he's three. But we all still had a great time. I'm close to the end of Charlotte. I've decided not to do the crochet edge on her, and find another edge. I hate to crochet. I've been flipping through Nicky Epstein's Knitting on the edge. I'm thinking a picot edge, but I need it to work mathmatically. I'm open to all suggestions! Oh, and I have a film recommendation! If you enjoy foreign films, you might like Children of Heaven. It's an Iranian movie about a boy who loses his sister's show by accident. He and his sister share his shoes for school as they go to school at different times. The boy enters a foot race where the prize is a pair of sneakers. It was really sweet.
