Day 24 ....


just knitting up some Anchor Magicline cotton for a summer top for Isabelle. Mum popped into Spotlight and grabbed some and they were $10 a bag which had 10 balls. I definately wont use all of these but it is knitting up nicely so far and hopefully I can show you some progress. Oh and in response to Gillian's comments - Lachie doesnt like his photo on the blog anymore as he is worried someone might recognise (dont know who that would be though) so I have obliged and kept him out of it. He is growing up to be quite a young man now as he will be turning 16 in January. I do knit things for him but he never wants to wear them as he says they are itchy. I could knit him something out of cotton and he would say the same thing, maybe it is just a teenager thing. I could understand it when he was younger because the yarns I knit with then probably were some nasty itchy acrylic. Anyway maybe one day he will change his mind ..... although putting his ironing away the other day I noticed the knitted hat I had made him, he has only worn it twice and IT HAD A BIG HOLE IN IT! He said he doesnt know how it got there, and there werent any moths I could blame either. Oh well! See you all tomorrow....

You have to love yarn priced at $1! I'm sure it will make a great little top, too. :o)

That's so sweet that Lachie is scared of being recognised. My Mother in law says I have to respect the privacy of my children and she has asked me not to put photos of them on my blog.

i have some of that cotton (ok more then some..but i only got 1 lot when it was $1 a ball like that). still no full idea what to do with it. thinking a top for the girls each.

im not looking forward to my girls getting to that age where they dont wanna wear my knitting anymore :( i hope they never reach that age! lol

That's funny about Lachie and the embarrassment. Textbook 16 yo behaviour.

I used to LAY DOWN in the back of the car when I went anywhere with mum and dad, in case anyone saw me! How awful is that?!!

I hope mine don't do that to me, but there's no way of knowing until the time comes is there?

WOW, 16 - where did the time go? someday he'll be begging for you to knit for him!

I bought a bag of the cotton too. They were too cheap to resist & now I will have to find a project to do.
