Big Announcements: Yesterday as we sat by the tree and dusted colored chalk off of our holiday finery (the Biscuit got an easel), my sister handed us each one of these:
Bouncing Babies: Each ornament had something different inside, but all signs point to It's a Boy! Check out what she "stashed" in my ornament. As if I needed the hint.
Blue: A Boy cousin for Biscuit! And blue, blue, blue yarn that I jumped up and immediately pulled from the stash. I am definitely going to make one of these and some of these go without saying. However, I'm welcoming any ideas for a sweet little sweaters.
Blurry: Top to bottom that's STR Mediumweight in Stonewash, Koigu KPPM in some number, Lorna's Laces in Icehouse, and Hello Yarn Fat Sock in Gentle. (Sorry about the blurs. It was a rather blustery day.)
Befuddled: Guess what else B is for? In the longstanding tradition of Baiting Me, (though I love you dearly, my little Bird) my sister told me that the baby's name will begin with B, and offered the following completely inadequate clues.
1. If you are a watcher of television, listener of radio, or reader of newspapers, you see/hear this name frequently.
2. It has something to do with a geographical feature, but not one you'd necessarily see if you opened up any old atlas.
I'm totally bewildered. Bamboozled. Bemused. But no longer a-mused. (And no, it is not Bush. She likes Baiting Me, not making me cry.) A little help? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
