Bootie Fodder!

Hey guess what!? My cousin had her baby! She hasn't gotten to blog yet, so I'm posting a pic here! Look at how freakin' cute he is! Born July 26th at 2:52 am, weighing in at a whopping 10 lbs 3 oz!Picture credit to Julia Pearson I believe...

And in other anitclimactic news, despite the 105 degree heat (at least there's no humidity!) I have actually been knitting!
Tadaaa. My second ever pair of adult socks. Destined for a very belated gift box to the Lovely Lisa (Hi, Lisa!). It went so smoothly I decided to try some color work next. Ha ha ha! Now I have this big persnaggeldy mess that soon will be a sweater for the new little gipper in the family! (See above!)

Oh and the whole fam damily went for a hike in The Park today and we saw THREE BEARS! Um, no, not The Three Bears, there was no porridge involved. Just three Black Bears (that are really brown colored). Two munching away on a grassy meadow, and another ambling around another field. This really isn't a rare occurrence in the ole Yose, but we haven't been out much, so it was exciting for us. We made sure mom and cub were on the same side of the trail, made lots of noise so that she knew we were coming and slithered past with a big group of other hikers. Safe as houses. And I forgot my camera. Foo.
