I needed this on Wednesday! We had received a phone call on Tuesday to say that the dreaded OFSTED inspectors were on their way. Thank you Sophie. You made Grandma smile. Doesn't she have lovely writing for an eighteen month old?
Just as the phone call came through, we were happily digging for dinosaur bones!
Needless to say, NO knitting was done this week at all, until yesterday afternoon. So, there is very little to show you.
I have manged to finish the little 'Wee Willie Winkie' hat for Sophie. It's rather swee, but looks way too large for her. I made the 12-18month size, but I think it might almost fit an elephant.
I've made up my mind on two of them I think. I have just cast on the little striped hoodie above, using the green and red...... Christmassy colours for a change. I've also decided on the little apricot cardi, to use up the deep pink that I already had in my stash. The extra green and the cream will hopefully make a little stripey beanie hat. Hmm! Think I've left it a little too late, but never mind.
My October Knitspot club project is at a standstill at present. I think I've over-killed on scrf knitting since the summer and can't seem to summon up the enthusiasm for it, which is a shame as I plan to give it to Sophie's dad (my son) for Christmas.
I'll leave you with two cute pics......

Dear little Sophie drawing her Grandma a lovely picture. She's eighteen months old now and absolutely full of mischief. She's wearing another little Debbie Bliss hoodie that I made a few months ago.
Well, let's try again this week................. here's hoping for a peaceful week!! Hope yours is too!
