Yes, folks, that's all it takes - a little help from friends. I've been procrastinating for such a long time about not having written a blog post for months and I want to thank Teresa for giving me that little shove to get me going again. You see, Teresa and her sister Denise are having a little KAL (knit-a-long), making the Hitch-Hiker scarf and since I've had this pattern for awhile but hadn't got around to starting it, I asked if I could join in their KAL. I'm using Bendigo Woollen Mills 8 ply Bloom in purple - it has subtle shades of purple with flecks every now and then (4.50mm needles). Here's my scarf so far ...
We've had a fairly frantic few months since I last posted. Mostly family things and most important was my little grandson Oliver's 1st birthday on November 16. We had an early celebration a week before while his Belgian grandparents were here for a visit. The Cotter Dam is about a half hour drive from home has a lovely picnic area so we decided it would be perfect for his first 1st birthday party ..
On his special day, we celebrated at home ..
I hope I haven't bored you too much with baby pictures - promise I won't do it too often :)
In addition to my knitting, I've also been doing some charity crochet - two small premmie baby blankets which I forgot to photograph before sending them away, and for this months charity "Hats for Homeless Kids", I've almost finished 4 beanies. Will take pics to show you as soon as they're done.
While browsing my groups this morning, I found this cute little butterfly tutorial which I'd like to share with you and also put here so I can find it again when I need it .. I think they're very pretty, extremely easy and could be used for so many things.
Because I haven't posted to so long, I'm thinking any readers I may have had will have gone so if you're still here, please let me know.
Till next time ....
