Tuesdays with Charlie | A Full Lap and Some Knitting.

I shared this photo on Instagram, but the caption ("full lap ... full heart") doesn't tell the whole story.

First off - it's huge that Holly and Charlie are both snuggled in the same chair (even with Marmie wedged in between). And the book we're reading is new (we also read this one) - the latest in the crayon series from Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers. I bought these (actually pre-ordered, way back in August; they were delivered last week) for Charlie to give to his little brother; it's only fair - right?! - that he gets to read them first (we still need to wrap them). 

They're board books, so I think they'll be sturdy - and I'll bet Charlie will be able to "read" them out loud soon...just like I did today. Also - note the afghan. Yep, snuggle weather!

Naptime proceeded much as usual. Milk, two stories and then two plus hours of sleep for Charlie...and knitting for me. This photo (which I also shared on Instagram) pretty much sums up that part of the day.

But I didn't share this one. after finishing round 51, and putting all the stitches on waste yarn for a try-on.

Decided it's long enough - and I've now started the 2" of ribbing at the bottom of the body. Tomorrow there will be sleeves!

I'm glad Charlie's brother (he does need a name soon!) will have books of his own, ready to greet him. And that looks like a sweater by Friday!

Holy cow! You speed knitter you! That looks fantastic! I am miles away from a "try on" but with any luck I can get a little knitting time this afternoon while I catch up on Indian Summer!
