happy birthday!


My darling Muiche has just had her baby! I'm taking a break from my shrug to whip up some slightly wonky striped socks for him.
The little one is destined for literary greatness, as he shares his birthday with both L.M. Montgomery and Mark Twain.

Imagine my surprise when I discovered that Mark Twain absolutely detested Jane Austen's work!

Observe:

Every time I read Pride and Prejudice I want to dig her up and beat her over the skull with her own shin-bone.

Oh, Mark Twain...I only wonder why you keep rereading it then!

Our stripy socks are just a wee bit big for the littlest... just a few more weeks and they should be better!

Oh, good! I was hoping that you'd get lots of use out of them!
