Yarn Along

T'was a frustrating knitting week for me. I didn't make it to knitting group. I knit my pixie hat about three times, and I'm still not happy with it. Shes wearing it and she thinks it great, but ... its not.  I know I should have ditched the pattern when my second try didn't work.  Usually its my fault when things don't work, but this time I'm going to blame the pattern. I've still got half the yarn left so I'm going use it to invent my own pixie hat, then frog the one shes wearing.

My boy, well the first time he wore his new hat he left it at his cousins place. It was a week before he got it back. He lost it the following day.  The boy needs a hat, but really I'm in no mood to be knitting any more hats!

In between this and working on a little order for my shop, I think I knit a total of three rows of my whisper. . . . sob sob. Its looking at me across the room right now saying 'finish me ...'

We're half way through 'The Secret Garden'.  Its book day today at school today.  This is Milly Molly Mandy and Silky before they went off this morning. I'm still trying to decide whether dress-up day is fun or stressful.  I spent the whole morning yestreday finding paper flowers for a  garland and face glitter.  She's wearing the garland, but she'd wiped the glitter off before we got to school.  Fingers crossed they are having a good time.

Happy Knitting!


  1. Oh no, lost knitting is not good at all! I hope the hat shows up.

    Dress ups sound stressful for the parents and fun for the children. But they do look awfully sweet. :)

  2. I hope you get to your knitting group this next week! They look charming and I bet they had a great time.

  3. Oh my..my little community is filled with my hats that I tried to keep my so warm in! Good luck!

  4. They look ao sweet in their dress up outfits :) My girls love Milly Molly Mandy :)
    It always feels so frustrating when a patter doesn't go right doesn't it!

  5. I feel your frustration about the pattern. It is disappointing when you have something in mind and it doesn't knit up how you want. Your girls look very cute in their dress-ups. Jacinta
