Just a few things since my last blog post…
A request from someone at work who is expecting their first grandchild – it’s an adorable hooded cabled cardigan called, rather excitingly, ‘Design I’ from Sirdars Gorgeous Babies booklet. I’ve just cast on a blanket now for them also, but more on that on a later post.
Next of all, a little story.
Whilst in Edinburgh, at the museum of Scotland, Felix batted her eyelashes at Daddy and left cuddling a small triceratops.
On the bus ride home, she informed me it needed a mummy and I was going to make her it.
Can’t fault a two year olds logic sadly…
It was easy to achieve though using the triceratop pattern from ‘Knitted Dinosaurs’ by Tina Barret. Just a little bit of colour work and voila!
I must admit, the squeals of joy when I gave her it this morning made the effort well worth while!
Except, just one small detail.
She just asked for a Daddy dinosaur…
