Leif has become pretty obsessed with Calvin and Hobbes lately, we read it before bed and when I go to wake him up in the morning I will find him passed out with a book next to his head. It’s cute really, and after reading the Pigeon Books by Mo Williems, every night for three months straight (No complaints Mo, we love your books), he decided that it was time to move on to a book that he couldn’t recite in a drop of a hat.
Yesterday, Leif informed us that from now on he would only be answering to Calvin and let me know he was in need of a Hobbes. As painting that cat orange with black strips was out of the question, I went on a yarn hunt in every yarn stash in my house
Don’t judge me.
After a long search, I finally found the perfect colors, which leads me to today.
In between cough marathons, fits of sneezing, and the ache that is going on in my back after accidentally being kicked by a five year old this morning, I have been able to start the body of “Calvin’s” friend Hobbes….or should I safe Leif’s friend, as Leif has decided that he doesn’t really care much for Calvin anyhow.
Have a great day folks!!
