Tatto artist

Big I: "Mom, some people have drawings on their arms."

Me: "That's right. They're called tattoos."

Big I: "Yeah."

Me (after turning around and looking at Big I): "Is that why you drew on your face with a pen?"

Big I: "Mm hmm."

A blue sweater

It's been ages since I posted anything I've made despite the fact that I'm always working on something. This one has such a cute model I thought I'd share.

Big I wanted me to make him a sweater and he said he wanted it to be blue. He didn't say only blue. I made a basic v-neck raglan and let the yarn do the work. The colorway is called 'Glacier Bay'.

Had to redo the sleeve and body length twice to make it slightly over-sized; I think he had a growth spurt while it was on the needles. Maybe it'll last the winter now.

Muffin thief!

Last night, Big I and I made these muffins. (By the way, they are only muffins in shape. The texture is something between pumpkin pie and french toast with all those eggs in there.)

I went to take a shower this morning after Daddy left and come out to find this on the counter:

Someone has been eating my muffins.

For the record, he gets this from his father who would take one bite of each cookie to 'claim' it. He has 3 older siblings, I guess it was pure survival on Craig's part.

But Big I has no older siblings. He just wanted the chocolate chips.
