Hi everyone! How was your weekend? It was a little cold and overcast around here. But I'm thankful for every drop of sunshine I can get on the weekends. I'm definitely not missing the rain.
We had a quiet one and spent a little bit of time outdoors, just the hubby and I. We went bushwalking and strolled along the beach. The cool weather kept most families away but the die hard swimmers were not put off by the cold water and there were weekend fishermen along the rocks trying their luck. The café near the beach was, however, bustling with families having brunches and boy, the coffee aroma was so terribly tantalising! Although I do miss having a proper cup of coffee every weekend, I was good and stayed away. I already had my daily dose of caffeine that morning.
Anyway, I had grand plans of showing you the Milo vest (pattern in Ravelry) I've been knitting on and off. I thought I would have it finished by now but I had a little problem with it and have lost interest in it. You see, I didn't check my gauge. I intended the vest to be worn from newborn to 3 months but because of my lazines, the vest is too big! The chest size will suit a 6 month old and older. Argh!
It isn't the end of the world of course. It just means my baby girl will only get to wear it late Summer or Autumn next year. So as you can imagine, I've lost motivation to finish the vest right now. Instead I've been pottering around with other things. Pretty sweet things to be exact.
What do you think? Are you in love with this granny bunting as much as I am? I've got a toothache just looking at it! It was so quick to crochet and I added the little flowers to make it even sweeter.
I have it hung over my TV in the living room at the moment. The colours really stand out against the dark blue wall. I think I'll have to crochet another one to hang over the crib in the nursery. Yes, I think I might have to do just that.
Notice that I've got Letters and Numbers on the telly. I love that show! Do you? I am truly amazed by the skills displayed on the show. How do they work out the letters and numbers so fast? I hope watching it will let rub some of that cleverness onto me.
Can you work out what I'm trying to say here:
That's right! I LOVE EcoOrganic Cotton yarn! :)
