7 Days

I have been busy the past 7 days. Working on knitting and making plans for a small get together for tomorrow (Thursday). I have finished 2 brim hats and a mans pair of socks in this 7 days. As well as cast on another pair of mens socks.

Harley has decided for her party bags for this years birthday she wanted knitted hats. So I have set about doing that. Have gotten half way done with 5 make. Below are 2 Rastacat [rav link] (my design) hats in unisex colours to cover if the boys coming wish to have one of those.

Rastacat Hat done in Moda Vera Attraction (grey) and The Wool Company Utiku Multi Colours.

Above are part of my Chrissie knitting I am doing this year. These are socks for Adam's pop. 4ply Patonyle back when it was 50g balls. Gorgeous and soft that stuff!

I am half way through my Chrissie knitting, which I am so glad about! No stress for me this year on that matter!! Being organized is great! lol

Finances here haven't been the best. But I have to keep remember there are far worse people out there. I have great friends!!

Gotten a long way through Chrissie shopping too thank goodness that I have been working on it all year!! Only a few here and there left to get for (and work out). Over half way done on that matter.

Hoping to free up some more time to get back to designing a few more knits soon. Or at least writing up a few that I have already decided to share but yet to write out patterns for.

Looking forward to little get together of friends tomorrow! Very relaxing and laid back it will be. Place where kids that coming along can run riot. Will be fun I hope! Will see.

Hoping in the next few weeks to get a veggie garden started and fully in. I haven't gotten any seeds started so going to go for already grown from garden shop plants. Wanting Tomatoes, Capsicums, Pumpkin. Though thinking will have to grow the Corn, Beans, Carrots and Peas all from scratch. Still hopefully it's not too late for them! Also planning on turning the old Recycling bin tub (which is a sexy pinky purple) into a Strawberry patch.

I have finished other things, and will be eager to show them off once I sort out piccies for them!!

I hope everyone has a great week!! Happy knitting to you all.

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
