Olympics 2022?

Probably not. We took Harriet over to Linden Hills Park for her first skate a couple weekends ago. It is super nice because they have skates for everyone to use so we didn't have to run out and buy any for her since this was likely our only skating outing for the year. I think next year she will probably get the hang of it better/be more cooperative. My arms were very tired by the end after holding her up for so long.

And then there was a lot of this.

Mother Robin

I made this robin and nest for Harriet for Christmas. I have realized that I am really just making these for my own knitting collection since she seems disinterested. Maybe Eloise will appreciate them someday. The pattern is by the same person who has done a lot of the other creatures I have made and it is here.
I love how the eggs are stuffed underneath the bird's back. So cute.

January LOTM

With kids we have less chances to dine in and have to choose our takeout food a bit more selectively. The Minneapolis Eater site has restaurant news galore to help.
