Actually on my work desk [ table ] today is....
Nothing and on my 'to do' rail is....
Nothing :-) Shhhhhhhhh I'm hoping to get some little dresses made today for the little African girls.
What I will show you though is this gorgeous wool. We all need a little passion from time to time don't we? :-)
I ordered 3 balls from Cari Crafts and it arrived last Wednesday morning. It was to knit two little body warmer type cardies for Amy's two big girls so they had a little parcel to open when their little brother arrived....best made plans eh? Of course you will all know by now that 'little' Stephen arrived rather rapidly later on last Wednesday so I had to knit rather more quickly than planned.
Amy brought her little family here Saturday morning and by then I had knitted two rather gorgeous knitties for the girls....and they loved them :-) [Yes, it did mean some rather late knitting but it was worth it to see their little faces]. Here is one just before I put the buttons on....doesn't the wool knit up lovely? It really lends itself to this knitting 'on round needle' pattern and they looked even better when trimmed up, one with purple buttons and the other with turquoise buttons. [I forgot to take snaps of them both finished...basically cos I was still wrapping them as the girls pulled up on the drive!!] If anyone wants to have a go at this pattern it can be found on Ravelry.
The other thing I would like to share with you is a parcel that arrived yesterday from my blogging friend Jo. She sent me parcels for the little twinnies and has now also sent me another gorgeous fabric panel to make into an ABC bag for 'little' Stephen :-) Thank you so much Jo. You really are such a generous lady....I promise I will get them made as soon as I am able :-)....I really love your card too.
Now folks that's all from me today. I'm hoping to get my head down to make some little dresses but will do my best to call in as many as I can. Do pop over to Julia's blog and join in the WOYWW fun but leave me a little comment before you go :-) Have a great week everyone.
