Chevalier Mittens

One up - one to go...

Spring is coming

Spring is in the air - both out-doors and here at our Nature Table.

Must admit that I am absolutely green with envy having read Petra's, Anna's and Mia's stories from their weekend at Groto.
So I got out my knitting-case I bought from Stickfrossa some time ago, just to feel a little bit connected. Thanks girls for sharing some of your weekend with the rest of us.

Pirate Costumes

The boys were invited to a Pirates & Princesses birthday party today. So, last weekend we headed out to get some material for a costume.
After the disaster of getting my purse stolen in the shop, spending Saturday afternoon at the police station, we finally could get the fabric with us home.
Elliot was very pleased with his, but Zak decided he didn't like dressing up - he is just as Zak.

So - one happy pirate and one happy Zak - both having a great time at the party.

Finally some photos

Just haven't got around to take any photos lately, therefore no posting...

Little booties made for a little - still unborn - girl. Pattern is this (just slightly modified).

Lovely red Heavens Hand wool from Garnharvan to be made into Anna's Ponchonett.

...and as London is in full spring, I'm busy making Chevalier Mittens... (doesn't make sense, does it?!) M&K Eco Baby Ull bought at Eks Lilla Bod.

Back from Sweden with my new Rug

The boys and I spent some time in Sweden during half-term. The boys enjoying themselves in the snow and I made a rug, 2.5 m of it (with loads of help to set it up from my cousin Yvonne).

All in all - we all had a great time!
