This is Tropical Lily (a free pattern on ravelry). The sizing doesnt go up to Isabelle's size, but as I was looking through all of the projects one lady had upsized hers to fit her daughter who was 10 years of age and wears the same size as Isabelle. I quickly cast on yesterday at my sister's house and knitted away. I went to bed earlier than usual last night and then woke up at 8:00 this morning and got a couple of repeats in again. I am sure this will be finished in no time at all since it is raining today so there will only be the ironing to do, cooking and knitting!
My sister and my parents came over last night for a bbq as the weather was gorgeous yesterday. Sadly my birch trees have died due to lack of nutrients and the drought so she is going to buy me some more trees to plant as a xmas pressie. I was thinking of those pretty crabapples trees which are drought tolerant. I need to find a really nice picture of one so Paul can see what they look like. Anyone else have some ideas for nice drought resistance trees that look nice to put in the front yard. We cant put any large rooted trees because we cant plant them near the house. I also bought some seasol and some blood and bone and Paul has just finished giving all the plants a bit of an uplift. Hopefully it rains some more today so it can get a good soak in and they will be much happier!
