Scarletts rainbow bell bottoms

I made these up with the lovely yarn I got from Susannes house of wool. I am really happy with how they turned out and more importantly so is Scarlett. Now I have to decide what to make with the other skein. I originally thought I would make 2 pairs of longies. Now I can't make up my mind.

Jay is pleased with his scarf and he looks good in it too! It matches his car so what more could he want? He isn't used to wearing a scarf but as we head into winter at our new address I think he will be needing it.

Josies old teacher Allie had a baby girl a couple of nights ago so I made her a newborn soaker. So teeny tiny aaaww! Josie also wants to make her a mobile. We are all really missing her and the school.
I need to finish Josies birthday presents and I have some yarn to make the girls some school jumpers too............................

Busy,busy busy!!

We have been so busy! We moved and are settling in well now. We had alot of work fixing up the new house. Actually it is a WIP. LOL!

I have applied for a student midwife program which will commence late June(fingers tightly crossed) until then I am at home - Woohoo!!

I have been having a bit of a wooly shopping spree. I got some lovely hand dyed yarn from susannes house of wool and some stitch markers. I started some bell bottom longies for Scarlett in rainbow last night.

I also went to my LYS and got some Noro, Jo Sharp and some freedom spirit. Yesterday I made an order at the wool shack for some debbie Bliss cotton, some Rowan and Cascade wools.

I also scored a wool winder and spinning book on ebay! I really have had some buying fun this week. Our local markets are on this weekend too......................

I have made Imogen and Josie some beanies. Josies is the blue one ofcourse. I have put it away for her birthday parcel. I put a crochet flower on Imogens. I am just finishing a scarf off for Jay. I used the Jo Sharp aran tweed for it. I am half way through a rainbow felt dragon for josies birthday too. I also need to make her a steiner doll like I made the other girls. She has requested a boy one. When I finish Scarletts pants I think it will be time to make myself something. Noro scarf and gloves?? clapotis??
