Yes, we survived our first plane flight -- in fact, Vivian was a perfect angel. She started to fuss a bit on our first leg, but I fed her and she settled right down. She slept through the entire second leg, a feat that led other passengers to remark, "wow, I wish I could travel that way." Hurray! Of course, she started screaming the moment we got in the car to go to my mom's, but I can't really complain. That's just Viv -- on perfect behavior in public, screaming in front of family. On the whole, I guess that's the definition of a good baby.

A few FO's for the list: #1, the Ogee Lace Skirt that I made for Jenny's birthday, and #2, Le Slouch, my Tucson knitting project.

The Ogee is from the Summer 07 Interweave Knits, and I used Wool in the Woods Cameo. Doesn't it look cute on Jenny?

And here is my Le Slouch. I got inspired by Catherine's version, so I went through my stash and rediscovered the bag of Noro Big Bebe that Ellen gifted me with (in her fit of de-stashing). It's bigger than the pattern calls for, but I think I made it work.

And here's some awesome news: I got my Ravelry invite! Hurrah! And omg, I have been on all day (in between feeding & changing diapers), posting my stash and projects. It's a little overwhelming, but fun. If you're on Ravelry, my handle is HandyC.

And in Secret Pal news, my Giftee officially loved her package, which makes me feel good. I must have done something right. And my gift-er did something right, too: she gave me a $20 gift certificate to! So now I can buy the yarn for Viv's stocking. Yay! Thanks Secret Pal!

Glad you got the GC! Figured it was the best thing to send since you were planning a yarn purchase!
Have a happy day!

Noro Big Bebe is PERFECT for the slouch/rasta hat!!! Nice work.

Your hat looks fabulous - I love it! Everyone should make one. :)

Also? Jenny's lace skirt is beautiful - well done!

And yes, that is about as *perfect* as anyone could expect. If she behaved herself all the time, I would be worried.
