Sometmes you just need a cosy place to hide. We're still battling various flu viruses here. Darling Hubby returned from a work trip with a whole new variety. We've endured multiple cases of conjunctivitis and ear infections. The last two sufferers are home from school today. When they recover we'll hopefully have enough immunities to stay healthy for a while.

I have managed to finish Wisp for my grandmother's 90th birthday next month. I think she'll like it. It's lovely and light, perfect for aging bones that feel cold even in summer. I still need to purchase some buttons for it.

I like it so much that I have cast on another one. It's such an easy knit and looks lovely. The bright pink piece of knitting is a narrow scarf I cast on a knitted and few rows of in preparation for Samara's first knitting lessons. I need to start another one for Christopher, who doesn't want to miss out on any fun.

that wisp looks divine! Must do something for Nan myself!

Kids and craft - Naomi did her first hand stitching yesterday, at my patchwork group. I will definitely have to frame it!

My children loved learning to knit- male & female! However I think they have forgotten the art now. It IS rather like riding a bike though, so maybe in the future??
