Ahhhh



Isn't it cute, this is Jamies first finished item home from school, I am really impressed, its very neat. It now belongs to his Granny and I have to wait till he is finished his third item, as one of his friends has already asked for whatever his second thing is. I'll keep you posted.....









So, one skein of Noro Kureyon is not enough for the beret from IK, I was left with 10 stitches to cast off and the little toggle to knit and no yarn left. Nothing in my stash or Mandys matched so I had to make a trip to the Rowan/Noro stockist in town. She of course did not have the right shade so I bought this one and had to take a piece from the middle to match, I quite like this colour so may make another pair of fetchings. My Mums fetching has been frogged, she was having trouble keeping track of the cable with the dark colour, so that Noro is now going to be a beret as she likes mine, picture soon as she is here to visit. She forgot the digestives but did remember the cheddar and the broth mix and butter beans so I will forgive her.......

The knitting bee was fun yesterday everyone has been knitting away over the holidays, Mandy is finished the back of her first cardi and is now knitting the front, its lovely, in her signature green, which was decided yesterday was sludgy green, hmm sounds lovely.....

Congratulate Jamie on his wee cat. Is he taking orders? The girls would love one of them. The sludge green is still no nearer to completion as I had to reverse about thirty rows last night after trying to watch telly & knit at the same time. Serves me right.

Wow, Jamie did a fine job with the kitty cat!! Way to go.

Is that wee hat not called a Tam O'Shanter? Or a Tammy, for those of us not well versed in the writings of Burns. See you on the 25th for Haggis by the way.
Can you tell I've remembered my password?

Goodness ! Jamie is quite the professional crafter ...... can't think where he gets it from ?? The hat is very cute. Sadly hats make me look a total prat but I do enjoy them on other people :0)

I'm the Granny with the cat - & I love it. I was over the moon when my very handsome oldest grandson gave me it - definately a work of art. No name for him yet!!
