Baby Dragon

Earlier this week my younger son was invited to his 'best friend's' birthday party and consequently was very upset when he could not attend due to illness. Together we decided about a present though - 'Baby Snow Dragon' that I found on Ravelry (and can also be found here). Now both my sons want one each of course, so I guess I need to keep crocheting.

One Christmas gift for our sons were a box of Kapla Planks that I bought from Myriad. I remember my nephew had those as a young child and loved it. In our house we all now enjoy them adults as well as children. This is one of the creations!

Leo is moving

This is Leo! He has just been equipped to move to his new mummy and her 'kindergarten children'. I wish him a nice journey and hope he will be loved in his new home.

Before Leo was ready to move to his new family and kindergarten, he had to have some really warm and cosy booties. They look so comfy and lovely that I know will knit many of these.

And as it is not often we get any snow here in the UK, I have to show a few more photos from yesterday - Today it is almost gone already...

Winter Wonderland

When they talk about 'Plunging Temperatures', 'Killer Freeze' and 'Siberian Conditions' here in England, it practically means between 0-2 degrees minus Celcius. But with this it does come a total chaos if you had any plans to go anywhere. Therefore I (luckily as it turned out) cancelled some birthday drinks with friends in London last night. Trains were running poorly even before it started snowing so I did not dare to take the chance getting both in to London and back home again...

I must say I like snow and this is what we woke up to today. Will have to make the most of it; sledging, snowman building etc. because it will probably be gone before long. Even though the traffic chaos and public transport cancellations will remain for days if not weeks...

(Haven't been able to get rid of the poinsettia yet, but the tulips are creeping in...)

As a proud mother, I must show off what my 7 year old son knitted during his first term of school-life.
