I'm flying by the seat of my pants here. I had a vision in my head of a fisherman pullover style jumper for me littlest girlie made from the leftovers of my Agnes. The catch was that the front panel was all knit in hot pink. I spent a LONG time thinking about how to knit this in the round with two colours and all I could come up with was breaking and attaching at EVERY colour change (please feel free to comment and tell me how I could have done this more easily!) Oh - and I didn't use a pattern I just did a bit of math in my head and adjusted the Agnes pattern. So I'm on the last sleeve. I've got a mountain of ends to weave in that are making it look incredibly bulky when I try it on her, but other than that I think it might just work out OK size-wise, and end up being super cute - bonus.
I started the Narnia book with the Dubhessa and Tadhg this week. Dubhessa has declared it too scary and dark, so she opted out after chapter 3 and is doing her own bedtime reading. Tadhg is loving it. If you could please recommend some lighthearted easy to follow books for an 8 year old girl I would much appreciate it!
