Long time no post

Holidays get in the way of blogging so easily!
My aunt is expecting her second child in August, so I see a few baby projects in the not-too-distant future! A few knitted hats, a quilt and something for big sis so she doesn't feel left out. Yarn has been purchased for the hats, any excuse for buying yarn will do. A nice bright green and white, something a little different from the usual pastels for babies. I have a nice easy hat pattern that I used for her first baby and I'm going to add a striped pattern to it I think. I'm thinking of doing the quilt with a log cabin design, nice and simple as I haven't actually made one before. A smaller cot sized quilt seems less daunting than a 'normal' sized one.
In other news, school has gone back for me. The highlight of the first few days? Exploding water filled balloons with matches in science. Easy, fun, messy and VERY satisfying.


  1. I'm a bit of baby hat knitter too. I like knitting in the round because it's soo easy (I like easy!).

    Thanks for visiting my blog. It's great to visit yours too!

  2. Hi! Thanks for the comment on the Groke Parkblog. Yes, I made a dog from that book (currently the last blog entry where there's a picture of him). To be honest, the pattern was very suspiciously similar to the amigurumi guy free pattern on the web so I was a bit disappointed.

    I love your owls - I made a couple of those as well. The Roman Sock site has the most amazing patterns. I just made my first original one - Sheldon Plankton from Spongebob Sparepants, but I forgot to write the pattern down. Nrrrgh!
