For Christmas my eldest Sarah who is almost eight, received this lovely Knitting Nancy from a special friend who lives in Paris.
It didn't take long for her to get the hang of winding the thread and lifting it over to make this lovely long cord. Not sure what she wants to make with it yet, I thought perhaps sewing it up into snail looking bag.
I've progressed a bit further with this shawl, it now measures 50cm, only 150cm to go. Aahhh!!
We took a day trip on Sunday to The Dandenong mountains for a bbq and a bush walk. Later we stopped at a small town for some afternoon refreshments and I found a cute little wool shop. Warning! Warning! I don't need anymore wool!
I couldn't help myself, I saw this sweet little girls dress knitted up on display and I just had to have it. I asked Ava to choose the colour she'd like, and I couldn't wait to start.
Once I got home I realised I didn't have the right sized needles size 3.5mm and they are not easy to buy in Australia. So now I am waiting for my needles to arrive from the USA before I can start on this for her birthday in April.
The girls were feeling better this morning after a couple of days of high temperatures, so they have gone to school. Thank you for your well wishes. On our way out I noticed an animal asleep high up on our neighbour's window ledge.
It wasn't a cat, but mummy and baby possum. We still have fruit high up in the trees and we have had bats eating them and now possums. They are lovely but they do wake me up, with there chatter and munching away.
