For Emily Louise

A very bright early morning has faded until now it looks as though there will be more rain. Not complaining though!! The forecast is for showers all this week and it certainly feels as though they are not far away.
I am very happy with this little beanie for little EL and by chance tones in with the little set I had bought for her. I knitted in the round and was left with the uneven connecting stripes so thought a tiny flower from Attic 24 would fill in nicely and I think it does.

She also needed a little pink rabbit which was based on Nicki Trench's 'super cute crochet' book, Bubbles the Rabbit. Her brother and cousin needed a dinasaur each as they often play together. They are from Brigitte Read's book, 'super- super cute crochet.

The purple one has red eyes, the googley ones didn't look right but he certainly doesn't photograph so well, I guess I understand!
So, it's off to the post office to post the parcel. Why is it so hard to post parcels and yet how fantastic it is to receive one! At the moment I am waiting for a parcel from Bendigo Woollen Mills and can hardly wait to get started with the next project, a cardigan for myself. My vest is finished but needs a bit of tweaking before I show you. The wool stretched badly when I was was 25% microfibre, 10%cashmere and 65% fine merino and I think the microfibre made it difficult to knit with. Still, you live and learn and I won't use it again . It just sounded wonderful.
Hopefully I will join you in My Creative Space tomorrow.
