These Are the Days

I've picked out my yarn for February/March Project Spectrum, for which the assigned colors are blue, white, and grey. How perfect is this:
It is the Cha Cha colorway from Perchance to Knit. This was a colorway made available to SP9 participants. I bought it back in October, and it was waiting for an occasion such as this to be knit up.

Except it still has to wait just a little bit longer while I finish up some other projects. This yarn is destined to become a pair of socks, though I haven't quite decided which pattern I will use yet.

And look who I caught napping in their natural habitat this weekend:
My biggest and littlest boys. They fell asleep to a kung fu karate chop movie while I knit quietly in the background. These are the days I will always remember. To quote the Van Morrison song that I borrowed this post title from, "There's only here, and there's only now".

My love to all.

Totally love that colorway! can't wait to see what you come up with from it. And I can see why you would remember the cuddle times of your "boys". They grow up so fast (ok at least the littlest ones do). Cherish those moments.

I am so jealous (of the nap of course), that colorway is amazing! And I really don't need more yarn, but one of her other skeins is calling my name!

Gorgeous colorway!

Don't they look like angels? :-)

What a tender little moment you were able to catch! So sweet.

Love the project spectrum yarn, too. I can't wait to see what pattern they end up becoming.

sleeping pictures are my favorite kind of pictures. So sweet.

Oh, that yarn! What glorious colors.

I caught my two boys sleeping like that this weekend, too. It's a rare treat for the two of them. I just sat there and watched them sleep. :)
