I've been out of touch

But today I am making an effort to blog.

First I'm going to show you some pictures of Emilia in her show costumes. She looked delicious on stage and I am looking forward to ordering the DVD. She was poorly and sent home from school the week of the show so we kept her off all week to make sure she was well enough to do it!

Please pop back later on today as I have a host of FO's to show, all small ones :)

This is what happens when you let DH play with food colouring, glace icing and fairy cakes! Made for a Halloween party last night!

Halloween biscuits, yummy!

We can't remember what E was dancing to in this picture but she was meant to be getting ready for a party!


I have been knitting :) This is a cardi made in sirdar baby bamboo. It is a 4ply pattern but I used dk yarn, 4mm needles and the preemie stitch counts but the 0-3 measurements to make it.
One skein baby bolero - I'll finish it as soon as the rest of the yarn arrives, it is scrummy yarn to work with :)
Baby kimono of my own design, just needs some ribbon ties. Made in 4ply cotton and matches Saartjes Booties that I made earlier in the year.
Baby booties :) Purple yarn is Lorna's Laces DK Swirl and pink yarn is Jaeger baby merino.
and finally....
A whole heap of fingerless gloves. From top, Fetching in DB cashmerino aran, My own design in Mirasol Hachu from John Lewis (I NEED more of this yarn!), Maddies simple ribby ones, Mum's Dragonscale Wristwarmers in LL DK swirl as before and Millie's in same stich pattern as mine. Just DH and we will be complete!
Tomorrow,update on me, piccies of socks and another

Everything looks great. I love the baby bolero in the variegated yarn! Good job.

What a lovely young lady! I'm sure she was terrific.

Beautiful knits, too. No wonder you didn't have time to post, you've been busy!

Missed ya when you were away! Emilia looks great and so grown up.

Your knits are beautiful too.

No danger I would let DH near any home baking! He's a mean hand at doing pasta, but cakes.....definately NOT!
