So this past week has found me tidying up a lot! I had a sort out of all our hats scarves, cowls, coats and such like and decided to send some to charity shops and the rest to be neatly folded so we can see what we have got when the real chilly weather arrives. It's actually a lot less than what I thought, we do seem to have a few berets between Alice and I and all have about 3 pairs of gloves each. I wonder if this is still too much?
Our beautiful dreamer turned 13 on Thursday. I looked for a 13 birthday card and none of them spoke to me, but when I found this sweet card I couldn't resist. Keep day dreaming Alice!
Talking of birthdays I bought this little treasure which is from the 1800's Victorian era. How gorgeous is it that it has a flower for each day of the year and someone has written their family/friends birthdays in in ink with 1800's birth dates. I don't know if I will write my dates in or not, do you think it would spoil it or not? I haven't decided yet.
Oooh look I finished my little 18 month old niece's wee socks for her to wear with her wellies. I am going to send them to her this week as she is recovering from nasty tonsillitis and hopefully this will bring a little cheer in the post. I used this free pattern on Ravelry. I was rather pleased that I had just enough left over sock yarn from when I knitted Alice a pair of socks. There always seems to be so much yarn left over when knitting socks.
Well, that's all folks
I realy wish I could be going to Yarndale this year, maybe next time. It would be a great opportunity to meet fellow blogging friends and all that yarn...gosh I'm sure it will be a fabulous event. Happy weekending everyone!
