It's two weeks today since we had to let my little Charlie go. It hasn't been a good two weeks. I have yet to get through a day without crying from the overwhelming feeling of missing my little furry companion. Thank you so much to all of you who left comments on his good-bye post - I was moved by each and every one, and I know he can feel all the love you've sent him as he made his final journey home. And the fact that the comments on his post were nearly double the amount of comments I've every gotten was somehow a great comfort to me.
So, two weeks. Seems like it should be time to get back into the old routines. Start posting to the blog again. But I don't quite know what to talk about. Honestly, everything these days is clouded by one fact: I miss Charlie.
If there is ever anything that makes a sad person (and certainly a sad knitter) feel somewhat happy, it's a new baby. Luckily, one of my closest friends just had a little boy, Adian. I have a sweater planned for him, but in the meantime, look what I whipped up.

Yarn: Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino - Lt Yellow

This is a really cute pattern, and it goes so fast. I could have knit them in one day if I had been focused enough to work on them for a small chunk of time. As it was, I knit the first on the 19th and did the second this morning.
As an added bonus, because they have a toe section and a turned heel, these little babies earn me a February credit in Sock-A-Month 5.
