Okay, not the best photo but this is a precious sweater - it's Camilla Babe by Carrie Bostick Hoge. I made it in the 6th month size using Ella Rae Classic Superwash. Now all I need to do is find a baby for it! My husband's niece is due in September but we don't know what "flavor" yet. For now, it will be waiting for the perfect, precious baby.
Yesterday I had a particularly rough afternoon dealing with a flippant student. I was cranky and tired as I went to pick up our son from high school. As he walked toward the car he was carrying a foil covered plate. When I asked what it was he handed it to me and said "you'll see". As he drove me home (learners permit practice so I'm a passenger more than a driver these days), I opened it up and this is what I found.
My birthday isn't until May but they were making cakes in his food and nutrition class this week and he said "I figured, why not make you an early birthday cake". Melt my heart, make my day, tears in my eyes, bad mood gone - poof!
He said he showed it to his math teacher who was aghast that he put my age on the cake...he explained that he loves to rub in my age whenever he can so this is another way he can have a little fun with what he calls his "old mom". Got to love his sense of humor.
