Okay, I have completed all the straight knitting and will start the decreases for the armholes with the next round. For scale this time I give you a 14" needle - so the knitting is about 11.5" right now - exactly where it should be.
Last night was Valentine's Day and Andrew treated me like a queen. He woke me up (albeit at 5:20am) to give me some Godiva chocolates and read me a Shakespearean sonnet. I think Willow appreciated it more than me at that early hour: "That's pretty, Daddy. Read me another!" He gave her a Valentine's Day present as well - potted pink tulips that are currently in her bedroom.
