On the weekend we found a home for Oscar who went to live with my sister's friend in Daylesford. I am sure he will be very happy there. Now there is only Pip (Pippi) yes another boy who was enjoying a little hoodie ride in the back of Lachlan's hooded jacket. He eventually went to sleep in there after a little bit. He looked so cute and is enjoying all the extra attention. If anyone in the Melbourne area is looking for a cute little guy to share their lives with just email me or leave a comment that you would like to give him a home.
And finally the knitting project I finished in 2 days. This was made for Isabelle as she loved the pencil case in the DB magazine that I bought a few weeks back. I cast on 60 sts instead of 42 so it would be a bit wider to hold her pencils and textas. She has been using it everyday. I put some pink fabric inside which looks quite nice too but I forgot to photograph it.
The knitting swap that I participated in has still not been received by my pal. The knitted tea cozy seems to be lost now but I am hoping it will be sent back to me as I put my address on it. I wonder if there is a place where all the missing mail seems to go to. It couldnt have been stolen as it was PO box address so surely it would be only handled through the mail system and not left at someone's letterbox. I am so annoyed and disappointed for my pal. I feel as though I have wasted all my time and money on making such lovely goodies to send to her and now she wont get them. Perhaps I will take a break from swaps for a little bit to recover. Sorry to end on such a sad note but now I know how others feel when it doesnt work out on the other end.
Well onto my knitting, and once I find the right yarn to restart my project I will post you all a pic since I havent been too good on doing WIP lately. It seems a few others have the same problem too, but time just flies by so fast doesnt it.
