Busy hands that are rarely Idle

I have been show knitting with Dapto the 1st one and picked a few new and challenging things to do. I have wanted to knit a baby surprise jacket for a while but had no need so now I feel it was a good time to try and well cast on Tuesday night and cast off Saturday night. I will knit them again but they are just for th gifting box only. I just hope we can gift it to a good home.

It is weird the shape it makes before the folding.


Coathangers for the show as well with Dapto having 2 coathanger classes one for pretty one for plain I have 2 lacy ones and a bamboo cotton one. Kiama will have either one or 2 lace coathangers if I finish the other one I started.


I had to be different and get the smocked lace kit from World of Lace andcan honestly say they were the loveliest people to deal with.
There are more things that I have yet to photograph like the Tea Cosy that is close to done and the Rahakiri sal (estonian ) is to be blocked as well. Now things are getting back on track Ill get to them.
