New Design

I have finished item number 11 of my 12 in 12 kids tops!! This one is for a friends daughter. I went to high school with this friend. She has many kids so hopefully this will help her out next year with keeping at least one warm!!

I have also started working on the last of my 12 in 12. Rachelle has put on her birthday list that she wants a knitted jumper for Christmas. So I am knitting her a cardigan. It's inspired by the Shalom. I am almost finished the body of it so far! Which is good cos I will then have to knit Harley something for Chrissie too.

Also for Chrissie knitting I plan on knitting 2 pair of socks.

Speaking of Chrissie pressies! I am happy to say I only have 10 people left to buy for (well 9 cos one of them is me!!)..Still have the girls to do.

I have designed a new pattern as well. Its a cute little rasta style hat that fits children 5yo to adults. I have made one for each of my girls (both pictured on Rachelle below).

You can find the pattern HERE (Rav link) or HERE (etsy link).

Rachelle wearing Harley's Rastacat playing her Leapster (yes she can
see she has it pulled down really low and to side though).

I am considering writing up the cardigan pattern I am doing now too and making it available. I will have to knit it again to work out correct ply and everything first.

We have been slowly spring cleaning/dejunking our way through our house again for this year. Thought so start earlier this year then last year so we don't have to battle the heat as well. Today we have sorted out my linen closet (which we didn't do last year). Hopefully we will have time to get to finishing our bedroom tonight too. We will see though. We are rearranging some rooms as we go through them as well to add to it all.

The weather is fining up nicely here as well. Perfect weather..Not too hot, not too cold! LOVELY!

Hokies folkies!! Hope you are all doing well!!

Happy knitting

    Katt they do look great. I havent had time to knit one up yet as I have been trying to do my knitting work. I really should get started on some of my knitting xmas pressies, not too many this year. I really should sort out the kids toys and clothes and my linen cupboard too so I can take them to the op shop and make some room. The jumper looks nice too, cant wait to see your design.

    Is that jumper Audrey?? You have really met your 12/12 target with room to spare!!!
    Isn't the weather nice, cool in the morning warm-ish in the day and then cool of a night. Happy Spring Cleaning!!
    PS I reckon it is too hot for that hat!!!
