baby knitting and other assorted stuff
We have babies coming out of our ears right now.
Well, you know what I mean. Lots of pregnancy announcements, ultrasound picture viewings and two brand new arrivals in the last couple of weeks. Hence all the knitted dolls and baby socks being produced in my recent frenzy of activity.
The teeny tiny size of these little socks makes my ovaries ache.
And I made this wee fingerpuppet for the big sister of one of the new arrivals. Because big sisters often feel confused, unloved, neglected and thoroughly wistful when cuter, younger, brand new baby brothers arrive. Oh pardon me, did I say that out loud?
I shall leave you with a shot of a golden sunrise, streaming into the house and making the ever present piles of folded laundry look pretty. Not that it induced anyone to collect their pile and take it away to their bedroom, oh no.
Oops, before I go, I've had several questions from my last few posts.
The gumnut gnomes were adapted from this pattern, but with a row of garter stitch instead of rib, and the hat elongated.
A couple of people have asked if I can recommend websites that teach you how to knit and crochet. I'm sorry, but I can't. I've never looked up how to knit on the internet because I learnt as a child. But I'm certain if you Google 'how to knit', with a little surfing and research you'll find something. Google is a wondrous handy thing.
Also, please note that if you leave a comment on my blog asking me a question, I can't email an answer to you unless you register an email address with Blogger.
I think that’s all for now.
Well, apart from this Chinese Lantern flower, that is. (And what does it say about me that I’m starting to look at flowers and think to myself, I could knit that!?)
