 Well, I have absolutely no idea how I came through that week at school, but I did. Around the imminent threat of OFSTED arriving, we (Year 3) made sixty headdresses for the school Christmas show next week, rehearsed our part of the show each day, made four hundred truffles for the Christmas Fair last Friday, made and decorated one hundred red decorated boxes to put them in, decorated one hundred ginger star biscuits and packaged them, as well as teaching!!!

As you can imagine there was no time for knitting until Friday evening, when I made those needles smoke!!!!

Looks like another monochrome post today, but it's not! Just light grey and dark grey loveliness in the form of a cute little hat rustled up over the last couple of evenings for baby Eliot. I used dome of the spare Rowan 'baby merino silk' left over from the little sweater I showed you last week and the dark grey left over from something else. It's a free super quick and easy pattern - Rialto Baby Beanie! I've used several times before and it never fails to produce a perfect little hat!

Hopefully, these little beauties will be winging their way to London in the morning!

We braved the stormy winds for a trip to Aldeburgh yesterday. It certainly blew away any cobwebs that have been lurking!!! The dogs enjoyed the trip and as there were fish and chips for lunch, so did we!

Your classroom looks lovely and festive! I love that stripy hat, the greys work beautifully together. Aldeburgh looks perfect, did you have fish and chips! Have a good week! xx

It certainly seems the year of so much to do so little time.
But the hat is so sweet and I love the colour choice.
I've never met a dog that doesn't like fish and chips!

Yikes! Glad you made it through the week. And with knitting - sweet hat.

Nothing like the outdoors to blow out the cobwebs (although as we are on storm system #4 of the past week, I think the cobwebs are long gone!).

Oh, my goodness, Ros.. that is a L-O-T of Christmas to prepare for! LOL... Hope you can come up for air now, and more knitting. :) LOVELY little jumper and hat--love the top of the hat! Any of those truffles left? ;) Happy Days ((HUGS))
