Well the snow's all gone and it really is a beautiful day here! - I want to get out in the garden today, and start some well needed weeding - particularly out in my little front strip - which is quite frankly an embarassment!!! (If I can stand the shame of the starting postition, I will post pictures of my achievements!) I hate gardening in the front garden - I live on a main road - the main road into Guildford town, so it seems the whole world walks or drives past - and everyone needs to make a comment!! - I am a solitary individual, and it annoys me that people find it necessary to talk to me while I'm in my own private grounds, this is one of the reasons it doesn't get done! But it's not good enough really, and today I will put it to rights! - There are some little crocuses coming up which will be completely choked with grass and weeds if I don't do something quickly!

This is a little "keep warm" hat I made for my "very nearly" 3 year old nephew last weekend! I wanted to try a bit of colourwork to find out how I did with it, and what way was comfortable to hold the yarns, so this lovely little project was perfect!

It was made with Garnstudio/Drops Karisma Superwash , on 4.00mm bamboo DPN's, using this pattern! - I missed a couple of rows out by mistake, but nobody except me will ever know!

Have a nice weekend everyone!

In with the "in Crowd"

Along with the rest of the knitting community, I have made Fetching from knitty.!! They are made in Catalina Baby Alpaca, which is just gorgeous. I bought it at Ally Pally last year, and I don't think it's sold in this country yet, but I know the owner was hoping it would be! So do I, it's soooo soft and lovely!

I did make them a bit longer than the pattern, although I wish I'd made them even longer and a tiny bit tighter at the top. But they're snuggly and cuddly and just what a woman needs as the weather turns a little colder!
