Getting ready ot join Ginny for another lovely "Yarn Along".
I have found a lovely simple, free baby knitting pattern which includes hat booties, leggings and a little jacket....wait for it.... in garter stitch! \0/ Yes that's the complete set!
Now I do love to have a pattern that I can get my teeth into but I'm running out of knitting days before this little baba arrives so a pattern I can knit up quickly while "on the run" is simply perfect for me right now:)
For beginner knitters... or those who simply love garter stitch...or those who want something they can knit while boiling an egg, standing on one leg and chasing a toddler... here's a link!
As for reading, well as of late, we have been having great fun dipping in and out of " The Shirley Hughes Collection of poems and stories".
I highly recommend it for small children and mamas alike!
It is fun to read and contains the most gorgeous characters such as the famous "Annie Rose" and "Alfie" painted "to life" by the magic of Shirley Hughes' pen and brush.
