My second niece Alice is one this week. It was her birthday party yesterday in CHCH - I missed out but sent her down a little vest. I was thinking it's getting too late in the year to be sending knits down but the horrid weather we've been having this weekend means I'm ok! It's my usual vest pattern but this time I actually did the neckband - it's a simple one but sticks out quite a bit so I don't normally do it.
Here are some websites I enjoyed a while back - enough to write a note that I tell you about them: Blue Hour Designs - I love the teardrop and rhombus (?) shaped rings; TTP sent me this one ages ago - can't remember if I've referenced it before - but I love the Too Legit to Knit tshirts!
It's CH bday today - I took him shopping yesterday for a new pair of shoes and jeans. Can I just ask does anyone else find how difficult are blokes at shopping??!! JEEZ CH thought we would only be an hour or two - and he only ever wanted to try on 1 item, if it was the wrong size, it was the wrong garment! And he didn't want to bother the shop assistants? And he didn't want to stop for coffee? I think my of last shopping day with TTP - 2 hours in one changing room alone ... that lad has a long way to go! I'm going to make him a nice choc cake today - and maybe find somewhere for brunch - he might not do shopping well, but he sure does eating my baking brillantly!!
Hope you are finding a good spot to knit today with this windy Sunday!
