Finally I have finished my first ever knitted sweater. It's a good thing I stuck with the smallest kid! It took a couple of tries to get the whole thing stitched up, but we got there in the end. I also cast off the collar too tightly, so had to unpick a seam and I'll add a button. Joshua is thrilled, after months of hovering over me asking if it's done yet. Of course, the extreme cold snap we experienced last week is over now, but the sleeves are so long he'll get a couple of winters out of it.

A boy and his dog. Joshua adores dogs, real or ootherwise. How can you resist such a cute pair of 'puppies'?

Little boys and puppies have a lot in common, really, don't they?
