Some days are just made for sitting with a hot drink and browsing through a magazine and this morning was one of them.
We woke to a very windy and wet day so after a late start i curled up in the conservatory to look at what dropped through the letterbox yesterday.
It's the Spring edition of Love Knitting for Baby and its packed with lovely things. I'll give it to DD for a look when i have finished reading it to see if there's anything she would like me to knit from it for her.
This little cardigan appeals to me, it looks an easy knit but is knitted sideways to add interest.
BUT ... just look at this super little crochet bunny, how could anyone resist this darling amigurumi ballerina bunny, i definately need to try and make one of these i think, you know my love of little wabbits! LOL
This nifty little thing is called a Knit Kit. Apparently it's the swiss army knife for knitters and is ideal for knitters on the move. It houses all of the following things - crochet hook, thread cutter, locking counter, collapsible scissors, tip protectors, stitch markers, darning needle and a 5ft tape measure. It retails at £14.99 here in the UK and can be found here. A great gift idea for an avid knitter and so useful, i wonder if it would be pass the regulations for plane journeys?
What have i been up to this week craftwise?
Another little handknitted cardigan for DD. A pretty lilac colour she chose this time. This one is just a basic first size but instead of the usual rib we decided to go with moss stitch to make it a little different. My neighbour called in on Friday telling me her DD is expecting in the Summer, she loved this little one and is hoping her DD will also want to have some hand knitted garments for their new addition. As she doesn't knit herself she smiled sweetly and asked if i would be willing to do them, of course i said yes.

The lighthouse now sits upon its rocks and a few seagulls are keeping it company.
DH really likes this one and is forever looking over my shoulder to see how its growing.
Do your family take as interest in certain projects you make more than others?
Mr Stick the resident UFO patroller at Needlecraft Haven will be pleased with me this week. Floral Fifteen was out again and 2 more flower motfis are completed.
I hope you are all fit and well and spending lots of time relaxing and enjoying your crafting hobby.
Tomorrow is St Valentines Day, i hope you have plenty of love in your life right now
