So Tiny!

I had the great pleasure of meeting my newest great-niece last Saturday night. This is Samantha, from Ohio:

Her mommy is my niece, Amber, my brother's daughter. Amber called to see if I would babysit while they attended the last-ever Tomahawk Game between White Pigeon and Constantine, and I jumped at the chance.

They dropped her off before the game and we had her for about four hours. Rich and I took little Samantha out to dinner at Cracker Barrel with our friend, Michelle. It's been a long time since I've held such a tiny baby! At one month old, she is not yet as big as our Robby was at birth. She is a very good and happy baby, and it was such fun to meet her and to see her mom, dad, sister and brothers.

I finished a pair of socks on our recent bike trip to Arkansas. These are in Opal Rodeo, K6 P3 rib with Eye-of-Partridge heel. They've gone to Michelle, with deep gratitude for keeping our dog, Claudia, while we were on the trip.

I started another pair while on the road, in a lovely Meilenweit self-striping yarn. Pictures to come!
