We attended a local event this morning where they had lots of balance bikes and a racetrack. They also had really cool on the floor bike thingies that I don’t know what they are called.
Several of Charlie’s school mates came along and it was nice to see him interact with them. I decided to stay as long as I could manage to give him this time with them and it ended up being nearly 2 hours! Luckily, the centre had a coffee morning on and so I took the girls in for drinks they they played with the toys in there.
Even after that much time he still didn’t want to leave!
I’ve recently taken my little cottage business on a slightly different course. I fell in love with dyeing my own yarn a little while back, but I don’t really want to sell just skeins of dyed yarn…so I decided to use what I dye to make really unique baby items.
They are a LOT more labour intensive. First of all I knit a blank, then I dye it as a gradient, then I let it dry, then I wind it into two identical balls, before I then crochet it into the desired item.
I am currently experimenting with how much yarn each size needs so that I can make exact sized blanks. It’s no use making them too large, as you will never finish the grad! Can you imagine dyeing a rainbow grad and never making it to the purple?? It would be dreadful! lol
Here are my first few experiments which I am pretty happy with actually!
I’m taking Rosa to the ballet again on Friday to see The Sleeping Beauty. I think I am excited as she is!
