Well only been back a week and the tan is already peeling. Had a great break though and managed to get a coat and two hats made while away. I changed the button choice several times but ended up with the heart ones. I bought the wool off ebay. (It was sold as double knit but was definitely an aran thickness).
It is for a 6 year old (looks a bit out of scale on the photo). It has bell sleeves which I thought would make a change. Lets hope Willow likes it !
I telephoned the airline before I went to check if I could take knitting or crochet on the plane. I was told both were banned and had to put everything in the hold suitcase. What a waste 8 hours in total (plus airport waiting time of around 5 hours (yep flights delayed). I appreciate that the needles could have been used by another passenger to do some harm but a plastic crochet hook? come on that's taking it a bit too far. Instead I had to use the time reading the latest Kate Mosse going out (The Winter Ghosts) and finally got around to reading Labyrinth - Kate Moss coming home, two brilliant books.
I have also recently completed another baby blanket. I hope you like it.
