Nope, didn’t rip yesterday’s yet, I just put it aside and glommed onto something else in my stash. (Just wait till I run out of needles.) My friend Nancy moved away! Nancy loves to frog other people’s projects: total angst-free  ripiteedoodahh, ripiteeyay, here you go, done.

I wish.

So. Whales Road colorway in Malabrigo Lace, bought from Diana‘s de-stashing, knitted with one strand of a very thin cashmere that when it arrived awhile back in such a vivid neon blue, I wondered what on earth I would ever do with it.

Well now. Put these two together in the playpen and look how well they get along.

I say that thinking of a picture we got recently via the other grandmother of Parker and his new cousin born in April in identical baby seats side by side, with Parker reaching out and holding her tiny hand in his, looking at her tenderly as if to let her know that it was okay, he was going to be looking out for her always.

I want to be like Parker when I grow up.

Alison, honey, you already *are*. Where do you think he gets it?

Have to agree. Lynn’s right. Seems to me all your kids have a knack for looking out for others. And Parker can’t help but do the same. He’s from the same skein.

What that first commenter said… Parker comes by it honestly.

Love that Whale Road. You know I love a well-NAMED colorway!

what Lynn said! and I wonder as I look at pictures of Mr Cute and his friend (who is 4 months older) what it is they still remember from before

Cousins are special–no matter what kind. Those blues are meant to be together, too.

I’m guessing that those two blues are knitted together in the photo. The bright one makes the other sparkle.

Oooh, gorgeous! Amazing how two colors can make something entirely new together (goes for people, too).

so I got to thinking…because you didn’t make it to sock summit, and I surely would have not let you leave without giving you some of my yarn…what would you like?
I was too surprised and pleasantly dumbfounded when Kathy from Purlescence came over to say hi from you to give her some yarn.
So please just say the word, let me know what you would like, and let me know for her, too. 🙂

It’s genetic in the Hyde family…

And that colourway? You know I’m drooling into my keyboard. Gorgeous!
