It was a special day today.
It was the first day of school.
Grandma Claire (who is visiting) and Teddy both got haircuts. Teddy hasn't had one in at least six months. I had almost forgotten how handsome he is.
One fringe benefit of the start of the school year is the extraordinarily long wait in the carpool line. It stretches down 4-5 city blocks and it can be a 20 minute wait if you are really lucky and manage to hit it just right. Extra knitting time! The carpool line is one of my most favorite-ist things.
I am really pleased that the sweater seems to be knitting up enough on the large side that he should be able to wear it for a couple of years.
Apparently Ollie thought the day was pretty special too. Although he was less than happy about putting on a wool sweater in 100` heat, he seemed to enjoy himself a lot. Maybe too much.
It's very nice to have such a appreciative little guy to knit for.

Your Littles are growing up so fast! They are all precious! Love the crayon-colored sweater that you’re knitting for Ollie! Hope they have a wonderful school year! Will Teddy be going back to school up north?
Such good looking family members! I miss the excitement of the first day of school. The sweater is really looking good.
Thanks Joanne! Glad you are safely home from your travels.
