Lazy days

The Xmas holidays have been fabulous.
We have simply done nothing. I mean literally nothing.
We had planned a jam packed itinerary,
with a wish list from the kids.
Luna Park, Zoo, the movies & bowling just to name a few.
The only item we managed was the zoo!
Terrible, I know.

Lazy days did allow me to indulge in some knitting though.
With the machine packed away to accommodate Xmas
Boo, yes my dining room is my craft room :(
My fingers were itching to do something.

With the early arrival of my niece (see last post)
I thought a little knit might be called for.
It has been completed & delivered
& I am happy to announce the wee little one is home!
She is doing so well, considering her little drama into the world.
Today we went to have a loooong cuddle. Ooh made me clucky.

I am rather proud of my effort.
First time I've used circular needles AND double pointed..

Isn't she just sweet.

Well the knit, seemed to entice my mojo
& I have now started a new knit for Miss E.
I figured if I start now, surely I can manage completion before winter.
That's a 6 month head start!

Lazy holidays no more, I actually have a paid job (gasp)
to complete & with only 3 weeks before school resumes,
it's going to be tricky to find free time without little people under my feet.
Sadly it also means not much craft will happen, so I might be a little absent sorry.
I promise I'll try to check in with progress of my knit
or even some antics my kids have been up to!

Hope to see you soon.
