Emmaline and her special destiny.

Okay, so obviously (to some) I've been watching a great deal of BSG.

Let me tell you a story. I started knitting Emmaline on Thursday the 14th for a dear friend's birthday (hoping that I'd have it finished and on it's way to her by her birthday). On the 19th it looked like this.

Less than five minutes later it looked like this.

And now, three days later and more than a few rip-backs. It looks like this.

I'm hoping beyond hope that things are sizing properly now. During all of this, the Imp has been sick. We've taken him to the doctor for the first time in two years. He's on antibiotics and we're praying that it doesn't need to get any more serious than that. To say that I've been sleepless and worried would be a ridiculous understatement.

In the meantime, look what I got in the mail yesterday!

Can you believe this amazing Scottish lad? The amazing Laura of Under Rainbows made him especially for me. I don't have the words for how perfect he is. My boys were enthralled as I took him out of his packaging. The two youngest were anxious to hold him (and remove his clothing - what's up with that?). I'm reluctant to share him (my boys are of the wild and crazy variety), but am willing to pass him around for love and hugs.


  1. I hope your little one feels better fast! That medicine should do the trick. I felt sad seeing an almost done sweater undone!!! I have to say I've been there many many times. Good luck finishing it. Have a lovely weekend and congrats on receiving that cute doll!!

  2. So wonderful to hear from you today. Thank you so much for your message. I do hope little IMP heals peacefully and quickly. I know the feeling of your heart feeling so heavy when a little one is ill. Sending much love.

    Lots of love

  3. Hope your little one is better soon, thinking of you:)

  4. och poor wee man, I do so hope he feels better soon! I love what you are knitting at the moment and I am so beyond happy that you love the doll. I hope you feel it was a worthy swap. I truly love my cardi and wear i nearly daily and I don't need to tell you how loved all the critters are! I hope Melissa Sandy finds her way to you soon and that customs aren't having a problem with her being a live animal or anything ;-P x x x x
