ten pictures

I was going to do that "12 of 12" thing yesterday. I think I first read about it on Knitting to Stay Sane. You take 12 pictures throughout your day on the 12th of the month. Anyway, I remembered it in the middle of the morning, and by the time the evening rolled around I was too preoccupied with practicing piano to take more pictures. So the long and short of it is that I have 10 pictures, not 12, and they're not even great. But hey, it was a chance to play with my new point-and-shoot camera (Christmas present from Stuart!), and since I haven't had a good chance to take nice pictures of the knitting I've been doing, this will have to do for a blog post. So here we go!

1. Kids playing with the marble set they got for Christmas. This thing keeps Daniel occupied for a good chunk of the day. I think I took this picture around 7:30 in the morning (we'd already been up for 2 hours.)

2. Redhook. I started this in August, put it down, never blogged it, and now it's almost done. I hope to pick out some buttons when I meet my friends at an LYS this morning.

3. Anya holding an empty snack bowl and waiting for Daniel outside the unisex bathroom at the car dealership, where we went to get the oil changed.

4. Daniel with his camera, which he had to go and grab when he saw me taking pictures. His shirt is off because he wanted to take a picture of it lying on the floor.

5. Anya sleeping on the couch. She doesn't nap anymore unless we need to be somewhere. She crashed about half an hour before I was supposed to take the kids to a sitter so I could practice. She was Not Happy when I woke her up. Let's hope that goes better today.

6. Redhook again. Did I really take two pictures of this? Sheesh. I got some work done on the massive shawl collar while the kids watched a little bit of Curious George.

7. Anya all bundled up to play outside. She's wearing a Koolhaas hat I made while I was pregnant with her. That hat was supposed to be for me but I screwed it up in so many ways, the most significant being that I left out a repeat of the pattern, so it's too small for an adult head. (I just noticed that this is the second Brooklyn Tweed knit featured in this post. Can you tell he's one of my favorite designers currently?)

8. Daniel working on his snow fort, which is basically just placing hunks of snow on the large pile created by the snow plows at the end of our driveway.

9. Anya pulling a sled. She likes to pull it up and down the street. Not ride it, mind you. Pull it.

10. My boot-clad feet next to the bright orange sled. It just seemed like a cool picture.

So that's that. I'll try and do a little better next month!
