Pressie for Mum

My mother in law has been changing her bathroom and has decided to go with lilac. So I followed Susan Anderson's fabulous pattern (you should check out her website, I love her books!) and have made her some cotton washcloths to go as part of gift. I know knitted washcloths, cotton or otherwise, are not common over here but they are part of everyday life in the US so I think she will love them.

Home again

We had the most amazing time in California at the start of the month, thanks in no small part to the time, effort and care that our family put in to our stay. We love and miss you guys, and really appreciate all that you did for us. I'll add some photos and details of our trip over the coming weeks.

While away I started a pair of Monkey socks, these are now finished and I love them. The pattern is great and easy to pick up. I did change the heel and toe construction to my favourites.

Since the rain was keeping us in today I made this canvas for my lovely sister-in-law by way of a thank you. I so wish we lived closer she is such great company.

Hope these showers die out soon or I'll be going back to school with webbed feet!
