How cute is this?!

Mr 5 asked me if I could write the words 'loveheart' and 'sweetheart' for him.  Then he presented me with this.

Does this not just melt your heart?!

Yarn Along - A Parking Meter Cosy and a great book

Linking to Ginny at Small Things for this week's Yarn Along.

A parking meter cosy (of course!), using the pattern Saxon Braid from Barbara Walker's Treasury of Stitches. All the parking meters in the main street of Hamilton, Victoria, will have knitted cosies as part of Woolly West Fest in July/August. Very exciting to see knitting showcased like this!

I am currently reading The Spymistress by Jennifer Chiaverini. Having read all her quilt books, I was interested to read her historical novels as well. I have already read Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker and loved it; this is shaping up to be just as good.
