New arrivals disrupt my week

Last week was pretty busy preparing for the school May Fayre so not much knitting got done. However I did make a sash out of garden trimmings and florists wire, and a pretty cool paper mache Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle hat – seperate post to follow.

I’m supposed to be knitting a cardigan as an auction prize, won by the school head teacher for her grandaughter. I’d completed the back and half of the front at the weekend when I met the 2 year old little girl at the Fayre. There’s no way a size 2-3 will fit her so time to start again! No work done on it this week though as I’ve had a couple of lovely interruptions.

The first was the news that a friend’s baby had been born, a beautiful little girl named Grace. I’m working on a cute striped cardigan in candy colours for her. Almost done now, I can’t wait to see her mum’s face.

The second new arrival was at the wool shop – some irresistable new wool. I’m hoping to make Hayley a summer cardigan as soon as I’ve finished the auction prize. I can’t wait to get started now!
