what a week, back to school for big G, starting pre-school for little O & back to work for me, it's all been a bit of a shock to the system, well for me anyway, the little ones have taken it all in their stride (aside from being a little more tired than normal)
not that i'm complaining, it feels good to get back into a routine & in amongst it all i have found time to knit up a few things,
firstly a hat, this was going to be a birthday present for another little lady, but little O became rather attached & it looked so cute on her that i couldn't resist, so i guess i'll be knitting another one of these!
the finer details can be found over on ravelry
i also started on the Christmas gifts, first up a pair of fetching mittens, these knitted up a treat in some lovely Debbie Bliss cashmerino aran, they were so quick too
i have also embarked on my next sewing project, as i haven't yet found any fabric i like enough to re-make the first dress i did, so i chose another to make in the meantime,
from this book, i traced out the pattern last week, then cut the fabric earlier this week, thankfully i had a very productive nap time sewing session today, so should have something to share this weekend & i have to say i am even more excited about this one than the last one - (if that's possible)
