Here she is in a creation of my Mum's. (See why I don't knit much anymore?) It's a beautiful cross-over cardigan in handspun wool. Keira looks so proud!
It's the design named 'Maja' in Rowan Junior. Mum spun a couple of hanks of Chilco Fibres' 'pastel' colourway to knit this. (From the 'Pacific Pallette range, hand-painted by Elspeth Wilkinson, a spinner and dyer from Ashburton.) Knitted up, the colours melt into each other like a sunset. I love it, and so does Keira. Thank you Mum!
Arlo and I spent a couple of hours finishing off a special project, too. A while ago, in a swap with my friend Helen, Arlo was sent a soft-toy-making kit that she had found in a second-hand shop, nearly finished. It was quite old, but had been nearly all sewn up with the neatest, most beautiful stitches. Arlo helped me fill him with stuffing yesterday, and I sewed the rest and here he is...
Arlo's called him Eddie.
