There has been another finish here at Ruth’s Place. This little knitted dress was a pattern from Tiny Happy.
It’s a bit long for her, so she looks a little monk-like in her cassock 🙂 But it’s sweet, and by the time it’s cool enough to need an overtunic, it will fit nicely. Yes, she needs a hair-cut. The scrape on her nose is from a tumble she had.
Our care for Gorgeous Girl (while I work) has fallen through – the girl we were employing has gone back to Johannesburg for the semester break, this means that Gorgeous Girl is amusing herself while Mummy works on the computer, hence the disaster of a living room you can see in the pictures.
I’ve begun knitting on a scarf for my Scarves for Africa project. I’ve had plenty of car knitting time over the last few days and I needed something simple. We had our company end of year function in Cape Town (will blog about that in a different post) so knitted then, and Gorgeous Man, Gorgeous Girl and I went away for the weekend (will also blog about that in a different post as well).
Anyway, stash diving revealed this beautiful yarn, it’s a wool silk blend and was sent to me a while ago by Applehead
for charity knitting. In hindsight I should have doubled the yarn…3mm needles is going to take me a long time, but it’s a joy to knit with.
I would be remiss in mentioning the Scarves for Africa project without letting you know that the first scarf of the project has been finished. You can go and see Rebecca’s blog here for a picture. It’s her own design too. Very nice!!
I’m officially on holiday for the rest of today and tomorrow. So hopefully I’ll get caught up on my blog reading, and posting, and some knitting and sewing. Hmm, how much can I cram into the next 48 hours…?
