Every one of my Ella Days is full of digital camera action, as I try to document Ella's every moment - an impossible task, I know, but one I'm still compelled to try. After all, I'm the Buela, right? Due to difficult light conditions and an even more difficult camera, I lose a lot of really great shots, and the ones I get are often blurry or the light is really bad.
Last Friday some of those blurry and badly-lit photos accidentally turned out to be shots I love. I love them because they evoke (in me, at least) the feeling that I am in a dream, watching Ella in a dream... she is a real dream baby, after all.
The little "baby stole" she is wearing is actually the bottom of a Noro Hat, knit with Noro Kureyon. I just plopped it over her head and she was immediately at home wearing it. She never tried to take it off (like she quickly yanks off the hats and crown that I made for her.) In fact, she crawled and crept and rolled around and played, all the while grasping the tail end of the yarn ball.
The little stole is now half of a scarf, but I'll be knitting a new one for her as soon as I find the right yarn. Until then, I'll gaze into Ella's sweet eyes and enter the dream with her...
