Quietly plodding along...

Tuesday, 19 February 2013

I know it's been a while since I last posted, but here are some of the goings on:

Miss 13 is now Miss 14!

Both girls are back at school and after a few hiccups (class changes and the like) we are now back into our 'normal' routine.

Miss 9 is soon to be Miss 10 so a party is probably on the cards. I have ordered some really cute invitations and if it all goes ahead I will be sure to post about it.

I have done a bit of a mini makeover of the ensuite, I'll post on it later.

I have started Michelle Bridges 12 week Body Transformation (again), here's hoping I don't get pneumonia half way through like last time!

And lastly, I have been giving serious consideration to opening an Etsy store, so I am sorting though  what it will stock etc.

What have you been up to?


For the love of ...

Winter Knitted Hats!

I know, it's still summer so looking at anything for winter is a bit crazy, but we are headed to Tasmania in April and with the way time flies around here it will be April before I know it! So I have a few things in mind to make to keep warm in Tassie and here are the hats:

I have this one on my needles already, actually it is off the needles but waiting to be blocked so I will post when I have finished it. I have never blocked anything before so I am a little nervous about doing it.

This one has a cable that matches some mittens I have my eye on.

This one is lovely too. Unfortunately the original link is broken so I have linked it to it's Ravelry page.

And I have some sock yarn waiting to be knitted up, so I think this slouchy beanie would be perfect. This one you need to be a member of the Patons site to access the pattern.

Are you a knitter? What's on your needles at this time of the year?

Are you a blocker? Any tips would be appreciated!

Thanks for reading.
