a lion!

I'm glad everyone likes the bunny! I really love the new design too, so much that I'm nearly done a third toy! I had a great idea for a third animal in the middle of the night (breastfeeding seems to be good for my creativity) so if they all work out, the final pattern will have instructions for a bunny, a puppy, and a lion! All made with simple changes to the basic pattern.

However, there hasn't been much time for knitting around here the last few days, because Lev got his first round of vaccinations on Tuesday. He hasn't had any bad reactions, like a fever, but his sleep has been really disrupted and he just wants to be held most of the time. Hopefully he begins to feel better today.

I also meant to say thanks for everyone's suggestions for dairy-substitutes. I tried the almond milk, which was nice but expensive! The oat-milk sounded interesting, and I did find some, but I'm allergic to oats so I didn't try it (I have some weird food allergies). I also saw hemp-milk, but didn't try it. It was as expensive as the almond milk, and I had this funny idea that it would taste strange, like pumpkin seeds (I have no idea why). Lev seems to be okay with soy for now, so I've been drinking small amounts of that again. I long for cheese and yogurt, though, and the next few weeks of waiting will be hard. I just hope that Lev's digestive system is much improved by 3 months.

I can't wait for the pattern...it sounds fantastic!

I know you said you were looking for non-dairy, but if you haven't tried goat milk, you might want to try it. I had a lot of digestive problems as a baby and the goat milk did wonders for me--in fact, my mom has had a goat farm ever since!
