Practicing motherhood

Today on my way to work I saw two little girls taking their "babies" across the street to what I assume was daycare. These dolls were appropriately cared for as it was very windy and their mothers had covered their heads with a blanket. This was the cutest thing I've seen in a long time. I could see these two at the tea table comparing their children's accomplishments - maybe doing a spot of knitting or crochet. Or rushing to the office after the kids were deposited safely.

On the crafting front I have again been foiled by my former favorite yarn brand. I believe it has again discontinued a yarn when I was in mid project. Rational people will say stop with the low-brow acrylic. I quit the whole project and went on to something else. I am really getting sick of this retiring business. How are you supposed to reduce the stash when everything's getting discontinued? I was so mad I could have spit. Instead I started some cotton dish cloths and went back to my happy place.

Perhaps I could post a photo of these projects at some point - if they're ever done.
