I'm knitting little things:

It's a pair of socks for me, out of Knit Picks Stroll Glimmer in "Fiji." The Dogwood Blossoms sweater is too difficult to work on with Miss Daphne in the room. She had to take each ball of yarn out of the bag, and a couple of times pulled the sts out of my needles. The socks are easier to hold onto and walk around with. The pattern is from Charlene Schurch's More Sensational Knitted Socks.

We're still waiting for the stork to arrive. He has made a few passes over the house but hasn't landed yet.

The family has been enjoying some spring-like weather. Rocky and Sunny are enjoying the yard and playing with Daphne.

She likes to work. Here she is weeding the garden. She's picking dandelions out of the flower beds.

Speaking of Daphne, the Peapod Cardigan I made for her a few months ago still fits: 

I'll keep you informed of the arrival of the stork, when it happens.

As a public service announcement, Karen Combs has had some quilts stolen. If you have seen any of them, please let her know. Her website with photos of the missing quilts is here:

What's on my needles: Fiji Socks, as in photo above.
What's on my wheel: My wheel is languishing at home, but I have my Golding Tsunami with me with some Ashford merino and silk in "Mulberry."
What's on my iPad: Still reading Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's book All Wound Up: The Yarn Harlot Writes for a Spin. I read a chapter every night at bedtime on the Kindle app.
What's my app of the week: iBooks, where we have The Berenstain Bears' New Baby, which we have been reading over and over. Daphne knows how to turn the pages.
What's in my wine glass: Charles Shaw (aka "Two Buck Chuck") Shiraz 2010, since DH made a run to Rochester, MN, to Trader Joe's.

We're still waiting for the stork. Good I'm here, though. Poor DD can hardly waddle around!

It still boggles my mind that my nephew is a Sr. in HS! Gah, how'd that happen? Barely recognized my cousins adopted daughter at wake. The Chinese genes gave it away.

Thanks, Camilla! Yes, I know how quickly they grow up. DGD1 is 19 and in college. The time goes even faster when they live a long way away, sadly!

Daphne is a little doll..and growing so fast....Don't blink Peggy or she will be all grown up...believe grands are not in their late teens, early 20's and one married..

I will pray Zachary's delivery will be soon and an easy birth for both son and mother.

All quilters are my friends, but I don't know Karen Combs personally. What a shame to lose such beautiful quilts!
Thanks for good wishes!

Daphne's right in tune with her Spring garden, pulling weeds and enjoying her flowers. Hope the baby arrives soon and everyone in good health.

I think the waiting would drive me nuts!  Of course, its not a very long drive for me...LOL.  Daphne looks adorable in her hat and that Peapod sweater is fabulous.  Can hardly wait to hear what she thinks about having a little brother :))

Yes, that can make a big difference.  I'm sure all will be fine.  It's amazing how those little personalities form.

Zachary isn't even due yet, but DD isn't used to going full term. She can't rest well with the occasional contractions, either. Yes, Daphne is her own little person. It's amazing the difference since last October!
