Finally some finishes!!!
http://www.kathysfibres.com/ made up some beautiful dyed merino for me - she has even called it "Heath" after my nephew! When I knitted the first beanie from it Dan claimed it so I have had to knit another and then request more wool so he can have a scarf to match. I used my new wooden circular needles to knit these - lovely to work with! Next up is a purple crocheted beanie for Hannah - my kids so need more hats like a hole in the head but they've both turned into little fibre junkies and when they see something they like they casually suggest another hat! In this case it kind of feels good to be taken for granted - I love that they don't see it as unusual that Mum can spin and knit and make stuff and I find my spun projects just so satisfying - a real "something from nothing" kind of experience.
Anyway, enough blathering, I'm off to hang washing and clean mushed banana off the wee one's face; starting solids is so much fun!
p.s. guess which very excited boy starts kindy tomorrow?
