This week's small moments of happies came from me very quickly knitting these two Pixie hats for two babies arriving this Autumn (not mine, my colleagues). I got a little excited when I learnt to knit an i-cord for the hats, it's so simple, I thought it might involve a whole lot of dpn's, but you only use two. Once I've knitted the i-cords, I plan to make teeny pom poms to put on each of their ends for baby fun. I'm sure I'll show you once complete.
I managed to find two sweet vintage embroidered cloths in a charity shop which I have plans for. I love to think about who made these and all the time and patience and love put into each pretty stitch. I really would like to learn how to embroider beautifully.
Loving the perfect retro vase I found for Andy at £2 in a local charity shop. I knew he would be pleased when I brought it home, he is not one to collect bits and bobs like me but he is a big retro fan so this had to come home with me. I wasn't too sure at first, but now it's growing on me, especially if I fill it with cow parsley and buttercups.
Loving my local library, the knitting section seems to get bigger and better every time I go in there :o)
Last, but not least trying to make the best of an evening stroll along the seaside despite the wind and rain this week. Such a pity that I had to haul out my Winter coat for this!
Hope your week end brings some sweet joy to your worlds
See you soon
