"L" the squash eating machine

Speaking of the little guy, today he is 6 months old!

His mom has decided to make her own baby food, and this was her first attempt. I'm really liking this, because I get to learn from all her mistakes (I mean the very few and far between).

I was not at all surprised to discover how difficult it was to aim a spoon full of food at a slightly less than interested child while only watching through the viewfinder of a camera. His mom already captioned each of them as follows:


What is this gunk you are forcing on me??!! (and I add - and why did you try to shove it up my nose first?)


Wait a minute...


You might be on to something here!


The orange, it really brings out the blue in my eyes.


Now for the alliterative bit - pics posted with permission.
don't kill

Ugh.

If there's one thing I can't do in my knitting is count rows. Well, I can count, I just cannot keep track as I knit. I've tried everything, counters, clickers, adding at the beginning of the row, at the end, using a notepad and ticks, but I just lose track. I can never remember if I've counted a row or not. Most patterns I can either guess or easily keep track in the knitting.

But I have just met my nemesis. I have to add buttonholes every 14 rows in a seed stitch button band, which is conveniently located beside a lace panel. I am not optimistic at all, but I am glad there are only 6 repeats of this hell. I'm sure it won't be too obvious if each buttonhole is out by 2 or 4 rows *eyeroll*

And I just got caught up on my garment a week knitting. I'm already not hopeful about the timeline on this one.
