Quickie week, quickie post!

I have no idea where my time has gone! (Probably swallowed somewhere between chores, Felix, knitting, socialising, dreaded dentist and trying to cram some sleep in somewhere)

Another busy day today so I’ll be brief, past few days I’ve been at the dentist (getting a crown fitted soon so it needs drilled and readied) spent some time with Little Felix and her Grandmama and grandpapa, visited my boss and her baby as well as her parent group, visited a different parent group near me, went to work for a flying visit – Engel had a contact lens disaster – and…there was more, I’m sure…

But on to the knitting portion!

Flat rat bookmarks, free pattern from Fleegles blog

Which can be found here. I’m addicted to these – cute and quick to make! And who cant laugh at a squashed rat for a bookmark or coaster?

A Scottish Hippo Tea Cosie

And lastly, this guy! I was asked to do a commission for a very nice person as a present for their friend with the instructions of, ‘she’s Scottish so it’d be nice to incorporate that into it, but she also really likes hippos.’ So I made a hippo wearing a tammy hat, i did try the stereotypical ginger hair, but it made the finished item look…odd. so I left it off.

Fingers crossed she likes it!

Well, thats all for now. Felix needs to go to the clinic to be weighed and measured, then hospital for her BCG, after that meet up with Engel for dinner before my knit club. Hopefully Felix will behave if I give her a ball of wool for herself…7 weeks isn’t too early to start their love of wool, right?

    Never too early to start the wool obsession!
    Sounds like motherhood is more than keeping you busy, I hope your still finding time to step back and enjoy the whole experience though :-)

This is just a little place on the web to showcase the various things I've created, what I've been up to and to give information regarding commissions and craft fairs I plan to attend.

It's still a work in progress, and will be for some time, but I hope you enjoy what you find! There are free patterns, a gallery and my blog.
