Whatever you do - Do Not Scribble

I made recycled crayons for T today. He's not shown any interest in scribbling and I thought it might be the spindly little crayons I have. So I melted them down in muffin tins to make nice toddler-sized chunks of gorgeous color. They turned out so pretty I wanted to eat them. T agreed. He wanted to: eat, stack, smash, and try to hold all of them at once. He did not want to scribble with them. Sigh.

I also impatiently stuck them in the freezer to harden them faster. This caused most of them to crack. I can wait 6 months to bring home my baby, but not an hour for crayons to cool? Serves me right.

My baby loves yarn!

How lucky am I?
Or wait, maybe we'll be fighting over my stash.
Not that I have time to knit anyway.
