I Hate To Contradict You, Mr. Eliot

But April is NOT the cruelest month...
In fact, it can be downright joyful.
Introducing  Our Alec
Date of Birth: April 15, 2015
Designers: Adam and Isa
Weight: 7.89 pounds
Length: 19.8 inches
We have had Lucy's birthday this month. And Sophie's. And mine.

Movita Beaucoup baked me a beautiful cake with pearls on top.

Red velvet cake with cream cheese icing
We ate lobster first, of course!

Sophie and Jean Paul sent a truly beautiful card
And look what I got out of the treasure box! Daddy's handmade cardigan - 37 years old and still looking as good as new! I doubt that our current manufactured clothing would have as long a shelf life. The shoes, however, are a tad dated in terms of style!
We've had an anniversary this month - too many years to mention but worth a celebration!
We had a great meal at our favourite Halifax restaurant - Epicurious Morsels. It is a lovely neighbourhood restaurant - cosy and comfortable with a great chef (Jim) and excellent service.
 April Knitting:
Weekend Pullover for Alec
Pattern: Weekend Pullover
Designer: Andrea Sanchez
Yarn: Mineville Wool Project Merino DK
Needles: Circular 5.0 mm
I really enjoyed working with this Nova Scotia yarn from the province's very own Fleece Artist company. The wool is soft to the touch, machine washable, and has great stitch definition.

I second the squeal... A perfect post.

Congratulations to all--birthdays, births and anniversary. It's a good thing to have more Dyers in the world!

There are seven family birthdays in seven weeks -- a lot of cake! Great-Aunt Amy made space for Alec, but I still think about her on the 20th.
