Finally, finally, I have searched through my various knitting bags and boxes that are spread throughout the house and finished off some items.
First the Little Lacy Raglan. This wasn't actually a lurker as I have been working steadily on it since I cast on. But all finished except for the buttons. Why is it, that even with three huge button jars, I still cannot find two measly buttons that look good on this jacket? Oh well, that means a visit to the LYS - with my eyes closed as I walk past the yarn section in the front of the shop to the back corner where the buttons are hidden. A secret ploy to entice me to buy more yarn? I think so!
I think it looks too wide and short, but that seems to just be vintage patterns.
This Milo was definitely a lurker, as it was planned for Cuddlepie when he was one and he is now three! It has been finished for ages but was waiting for buttons. Goodness knows why it took me two years to get around to finding buttons.
I think these are pretty cute! And here it is, finally!
And some felting. I had forgotten how much I love felting and needle felting until I got started on this. It was a present for a girl's birthday that Legoman was attending. As my girls are big now, it was great to have a girl to craft for. Sorry my lads, but it is so much more rewarding to craft for girls! She loved it and one of the other girls there immediately grabbed it and hugged it and wanted one herself. Now, THAT makes me feel happy!
And very proud of my little Whirlwind for being awarded the Emmett Award this week at school. This an academic award that is given to one student per week over all the school classes. So it is pretty good for one of the younger students to be chosen. He seemed a bit stunned when he was called up!
They keep the teddy bear in class for the week and sign their name on him before returning him for the next week's award.
Well done, my baby boy!!
