Yes! My son is home for a visit. Of course it has been much too warm to wear the sweater (Cobblestone, by Jared Flood, knit in DK Peace Fleece) but its time will come.

We had a lot of fun doing a little photo shoot in the front yard. The whole silly set is here. I'm sure it will give you a smile or two.

Here are a few selected photos for those who find Flickr too slow.

Rose's hat and wristers are made from Belfast Mini Mills worsted weight merino/mohair (50/50). The hat is my own design. The wristers are a great free pattern from Ysolda. Leba's purple wristers are the same pattern knit from a skein of handspun purchased long ago from Perchance to Knit. The lovely purple moustache skein is Marina, from Fleece Artist. It is a machine washable blend of 65% merino, 20% kid, 10% nylon, and 5% silk; 160m/115g. It is destined to be a hat, I hope.

Next time (sooner than you think), pictures of the yarn and patterns Ben brought me from Estonia and an amazing new scarf "design". You can see the scarf in the first photo.

That was a fun flickrset. You do have gorgeous kids. Lots of personality. Cobblestone looks great. The stripey variation of the top worked really well.

I LOVE the photoset. Your kids are beautiful, Paula!

Nice knits, too...I remember you working on the mitts and they look fantastic with the hat. The sweater, it is gorgeous...

I'm still working on my freakin' sleeves. Sigh.
