Meet "Go-Go Baby"

Here is Zora's newest baby - we are calling him/her(not sure yet) "Go-Go Baby" after the main character in one of our current favorite books from the library. Zora pushes "Go-Go Baby" all around the house in her new baby stroller, just as the baby in the book gets pushed all over the place. She loves this one, probably most of all. So do I. She sleeps with him/her. It is her first lovie item - well, third if you count Lee and I as the first 2. She found "Go-Go Baby" wrapped up like this one morning, and was very excited.

Tropicana Socks

Here are my new Tropicana Socks, pattern from the latest MagKnits. I used Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Glenwood.
I just cast on for a baby sized pair to match - we'll see if it works out, as the pattern doesn't have baby-sizing on it. It is an 11 stitch repeat with a cast on of 55 stitches, so I started Zora's with 33.
I love them. They make me think of bird feathers.

It is fun modelling for sock photos - during this shoot, I thought a lot about foot models and their unacknowledged talent.
