You'll find out just what's in the bag a little later! But first of all I must show you the cute little hat for Sophie that I finished off yesterday.
I need her sweet little head to model it really, don't I!
I love the little tassels!
So, now she has two items from the set, guess what's in the bag!
Yep, you got it! I had to cast on the scarf straightaway, or else it won't be done in time for Christmas, or in time to keep her warm and snuggly when those winter winds begin to blow.
In the 'piggy bag' is a quick and easy knit for Sophie's little unborn brother or sister. The yarn is a new Rowan baby DK, 66% merino superwash wool and 34% tussah silk. It's gorgeously soft and comes in a range of great colours.
It's been another manic week at school, with a county team in looking at teaching and learning, doing book trawls and talking to children about their learning. Stressful to say the least! Thank goodness for knitting, blogging, Oscardog and family and for moments like the one below.
This photo was taken on my iPhone and is exactly as it was as we walked Oscar around the lake, close to our home. The sun seems to sink remarkably quickly at this time of year. Only fifteen minutes or so earlier, Oscar had been playing in the lake.
Needless to say, he was a tired puppy last night.
