Titi ... what ya doing ?

On Sunday morning I got beckoned to my mami's apartment.

My brother would have babysitting duty of his 2 and half year old granddaughter Nyrie. She is beautiful but a handful. Since I don't get to see her as often as I use to, I have to find ways to con her into coming to me or even letting me hold her. She loves her grandpa and she spent the first 20 mins hiding behind him until I pulled out the cheetos. Nyrie is a talking machine now and has a question for everything. So while I was cooking ( did I mention my mami is out of town and my brother hates cooking) I pulled out my yarn and started to work on my scarf. I got two great skeins of Lorna's Laces bulky at the Point last week on sale last week. It is a mix of the best colors of chocolate, grey and a dark yellow. I LOVE IT.

But Nyrie loves playing with my yarn and taking it for a spin on the living room floor. She has a fondness for my Clover Flexi needles too! She thinks they were pencils and wanted to color with them.
Titi ... what are you doing? I'm Knitting ... What's that? ... Its yarn Nyrie... oh Yarn...
Titi ... what are you doing? I'm Knitting ... What's that? ... Its yarn Nyrie... oh Yarn...
Titi ... what are you doing?
So this went on for about 5 minutes.

I was more than willing to sacrifce the two feet of scarf ( and I wasn't crazy about the pattern) to have Nyrie spend some time with me .. her Titi.
