Farleys for MJ and a Completed Scarf for Me

Mary-Jane is growing in leaps and bounds. She is very alert and inquisitive, not just looking at everything, but wanting to touch. She has taught herself an upside down back crawl, where she arches her back and uses her legs to move herself around the floor. She can cover quite a distance - and quickly if she wants to! Mary-Jane has started on Farleys. She is up to two a day (lunch and tea) and seems to love the banana flavour rusk - almost as much as what HK loves to feed her! Mary-Jane can also hold her own bottle, although we do most of the holding!

A few days ago, I finished my Yarn Gathering Baktus. I'm very pleased with the finished outcome. It is a very sentimental piece of knitting, and will be a constant reminder of Jeanette and my Yarn Gathering of Stone Knitty Friends.
It was made in Begere de France - Barisienne. It takes only one ball, and could be done a bit longer, but I wasn't sure how much longer so erred on the side of caution. Despite it being light weight, it is very warm!

What is Farleys and what is Banana rusk?

I'm not sure what the US equivalent is called, but am sure you have it! Farleys is a rusk which is a food stuff that you wean babies with. You put it in the milk and it disolves, you can have whatever consistency you want. Its a bit like a biscuit - a cookie?
