Something pink!

I am in the process of making a little dress for 'Peanut' if she turns out to be a girl. If not, then it will be put by for the next one. This is the yoke. Isn't the material pretty? I have put it together from bits and pieces and I think that when it is finished, it will all come together and be pretty and practical. It is in the early stages but I like to pick it up when I feel like handling something small.

Latest Additions

These are the latest additions to the baby cupboard. I made the dress, the little bonnet and the bootees and my friend Ruth made the matinee coats.

My Knitting Bag

Every knitter must have a knitting bag and this one is mine. I have had this bag for quite a long time and am fond of it. It is good to keep the wool for my current project in here, away from the strong rays of the sun, which would bleach out the colour.

I can keep the needles in here too so I don't lose them and a tape measure for easy finding! There is a pair of useful scissors, just waiting to cut some yarn.

I fold the pattern carefully so as not to crease it and keep a piece of plain paper handy for making notes.

The bag is always ready for action. I can grab it and take it out with me if I want to knit away from home, knowing that everything inside is ready and waiting and I won't have to go search.

All in all a very useful piece of equipment.
