Piper's Socks

One and a half pairs of socks for Piper are done.  As in 3 socks.  I don't knit much, pretty much after she goes to bed or is playing with her other grandma, because it's much more fun to play with her than play with knitting needles!  Here is the first complete pair.  They are so soft, made with Willow Guppie yarn, "Atlantic" color way.  Piper loves them and has been trying them on throughout the knitting process. Each morning she wants to see what progress was made the night before.
A little hand grabbing her socks off of the table.
I tried to get a picture of her modeling the socks. Ha!  Have you ever tried to photograph a constantly moving 2 year old?  So here are the attempts to get a decent picture.
Marching in place on the sofa.
And...she's off.  Sorry I didn't get better pictures, but the socks fit and she likes them.  That's all that matters, right?
She loves her Santa hat and doesn't seem to realize that Christmas is over.  She sings "Silent Night" and "Jingle Bells" all the time.

This is Brad's Mom.  Grandma & Grandpa Krumel left to go back to Nebraska this morning.  It was really hard for them to leave and I think it gets harder each time.  At least it's harder every time for me.  Piper has had all four Grandparents here for a week.  I think she will have serious withdrawals when we all go home.  Dennis goes back to Spokane on Sunday and then it's just me here for another week.  I get her all to myself for seven whole days.  Yay!
Here I was trying to get a picture of all three of us and it didn't turn out too well.  We all get along so well.  We couldn't ask for easier in-laws.

We did some sightseeing the other day and I'll show you some of those pictures next time.
