Today Cullen turns 8!! So exciting....
He was up at 5:30 and we have spent today having cake, greeting family, opening presents and eating lollies until you feel sick. We also made a stack of cup cakes to be taken to school tomorrow. Lots of licking the bowl and eating icing! Right now the men of the house are watching Star Wars and moaning about having sore tummies, Sugar overload!!
I've been catching up in Blogland and have almost finished a Cowl I have been making out of the most delicious sock wool. It comes from Dragonflyfibres and has been dyed the most beautiful colours that were inspired by the desert flowers. I was lucky enough to win it in an auction in aid of raising money for the Floods in Toowoomba.
I love it when you are knitting and you get to the point where you can really feel the weight of the project, which is not long before it gets too heavy to be comfortable but when you are doing a small project its fabulous.....means you are almost finished!!
I have combined the sock yarn which is superwash merino and sea cell with another ball of mohair in a similar colour range. It was a project that was printed in the Better Homes and Gardens knitting insert last month and it makes for an unusual Cowl with a lovely mixed texture pattern. Nice and easy just knit and purl stitches and round and round and round. Just right for us up here in the tropics, not too heavy and hardly any bulk....perfect for those chilly winter mornings on the Tablelands!
I will leave you with this lovely photo of Cullen singing the puppy to sleep on his belly, too cute! It was working too, puppy's idea of heaven :-)
