However with the wool sitting upstairs getting progressively twiggier everytime I looked at it I finally knitted it up into this hat last Winter.
(same one who didn't get the scarf it was originally) needs it to cover her ears as well as keep her head warm so YAY for my over-zealous hat knitting technique!
The Lower 40 has seen more than abundant growth over the last few months and Princess Curly-Wurly was delighted to pick this mahoosive marrow from her side of the acreage.
And there you have my finishes, wanna see the Summer project?
Coming home from a dog walk last night d/Boy asked if he could paint his cricket bat. As I listening to him enumerate his design ideas I thought 'Why not?' So many times children hear grown-ups say 'No' or some platitude that amounts to the same thing - Yes dear, Maybe later, or Oh no, I don't think so.
What a gift to be able to say yes. Yes my darling, go and use your hands to create something of beauty. Yes my boy, take your clever idea and your interest in cricket and join them to make a project you will remember forever. Yes d/Boy use your imagination. So once home he got his bat and rubbed it down with sandpaper, checking several times to see what came next. Finally he was able to apply the filler.
And finally my sneaky peek.....
...... oh Summer Swap object how I have loved making thee.
