Once a year, my girls and I manage to steal away from our partners and children to come out and play. We have 8 children amongst us. This year we changed venues to a restaurant which has a bar with a balcony looking out to the ocean. With the temperature reaching above 30 deg during the day, the evening was lovely and balmy. Add (quite) a few champagnes to the mix and you get 5 very happy ladies. Love ya, bitches! x

I'm getting there. Completely knitted in transit 3 days a week. Except for the heel turn which I need longer than a 25min block to knit before putting it down. One night at home each sock, then back on the train. But work has finished for the year so I'll have to do the rest at home. I love these colours.
What do you know, another WWFY number. This time a gorgeous handknit pair of socks for the hubberino for Christmas. I hope he loves them as much as I do!! They'll be great for winter :)
Another WWFY number. I LOVE this. It's a shame I've lost so much weight though. I asked for a 38" but I'm now just under 35". In any case, it'll be a lovely cozy coat. I will have to remedy the sleeve length though.

I have a couple of ladies in my life that are pregnant at the moment. So I designed these in different colours. The lovely Yasmin from ScissorsPaperMouse whipped them up for me. I love how they turned out. This one will live at our house for Ryder.

So I heard that Rowan Calmer was being discontinued and people were arcing up about it. I had to find out what the fuss was all about. So I got some on destash and started Ms. Marigold. It is a lovely cotton acrylic. Lovely soft and stretchy. And I love the colour too. Just the neck ribbing to do and decide what to do with the sleeve caps. What do you think? Am I a ruffle kinda girl?

I really really wanted this shawl. I really really couldn't get myself to knit it. So up on the WWFY group it went. Someone took it up and I sent her 1600m of yarn and this is what happened. LOVE! These pic are unblocked. But I already know its going to be amazing. Thank you Rrrr :)
