Autumn Knits

A gorgeous group of girlfriends gifted me (howzat for alliteration?) this stunning yarn as a pick me up after a recent bout of ill health. See, I'm smiling - it worked! They even matched it perfectly to my current WIP (Work in Progress) ink;-) Of course I had to use a pattern designed by one of them. Scrummy, scrummy, scrummy scarf for winter.

I'm trying to perfect my "gazing thoughtfully into the distance" look but am really thinking about how badly I need a haircut after being housebound for a weeny while. My Finished Object is a jubbly winter cardy. I am such the cardy gal so am super pleased with how this turned out. Not too big, not too small - JUST right!

The weather has turned and so have my thoughts, to planning my Winter Knits.


Um, yes. It's amazing what urgent and important knitting projects you can find when you have other jobs you should be doing around the house. I have named him Procrastinatowl.

First Stitches of Last Child

The girls and I made a field trip to Craft 2.0 yesterday. We were tasked with choosing a little something for Mr Six. I quickly realised that six year old boys are not the target demographic of many of the stall holders. We were rescued by SuperVery who sold us a very cute Sock Owl kit. Easter Sunday is damp and dull here - perfect conditions for parking the kids on Mum's bed for some stitching, fueled by Easter chocolate.

Didn't he do well on his first stitching!

Crafty boys need their very own needle case for their supplies so Mum had to oblige.

With life as it is at the moment, my Easter crafting has been done FOR the kids, not WITH the kids.

My son's hair out-tigers the tiger.
