It's been a while

I hadn't decided what to do with this blog, if anything, so it has sat here neglected for quite some while.

At the moment I feel like posting, so we will see what happens.

This morning was spent on a bit of a wander after the boys had been dropped at school. Happy feet has just started preschool so it gives me a couple of hours free every morning. I mean to spend them productively, so far they have mainly been spent in coffee shops and bed, but I have good intentions. This morning though I just went for a short walk while the weather was dry.

A bit of reflection time, and a bit of peace.I love being able to retreat to the reservoirs just behind our house.
One of the things I mean to do now that I have a bit of free time is to finish off some of my knitting projects. I think I have a few too many things on the go and lined up and I want to get on top of it all. So this week was spent finishing off a hoody for Lightning. This is a very guilty project as I knitted all the pieces over a year ago, I just hadn't put them together as I had made a slight mistake on the hood. However hood rectified and sewing up done and I actually really like this.
Another recent finish has been this little cardigan. I made this a couple of weeks ago for a baby girl I will call Rainbow. She is a friends foster baby and I have completely fallen in love. There is just something about her that really melts my heart in a way, I think I need to make sure I don't fall too far in love, she is a beautiful little girl. Anyway, so here is a cardigan for Rainbow. I'm sure it will only for for 5 minutes as they grow so fast, but I thought it was very cute.
And finally for now as it is school pick up time, here is a part of a secret Santa gift I got this year. I actually know it originally came from one of my readers Arwen, but I know she wasn't my Santa, just the source. It was a yarn dying kit with Kool aid. I love it, even if it isn't the most expertly dyed. I have found a pattern so hopefull will start knitting it up soon. Just need to finish one more thing off first.
So that's all for now. But I may be back soon with a little bit more.
