Hello again, these Sunday post do seem to come round quickly.
The weather forecast for today was hot and sunny, but there is drizzle in the air and a gentle breeze so I've taken the opportunity to get though a pile of ironing this morning, a thankless task at the best of times but when it's hot it's a job I tend to put to the bottom of the list, so i'm glad that's out of the way.
A few months ago I came across a free knitting pattern on Deramores, Cottontail Rabbit by Erika Knight. I thought it was so cute and it reminded me of a little red knitted teddy that my sister used to have when she was a baby. I already had some Stylecraft Classique cotton 4ply so I cast it on right away, but then I ran out of stuffing, so it was put to one side until I could (remember) to get more.
I'm quite happy with how he came out :-)
The green velvet ribbon was just some I already had and I was going to change it for a little knitted scarf, but for now i think it looks ok.
I just love the little pom pom tail :-)
Joanne thinks he is cute so he will be going to live in his new home in the nursery now he has has his debut. :-)
On Friday it was the sports day at Oliver's nursery so I popped along with Jenny to cheer him on.
He took part in 3 races, hurdles a balancing-a-bean-bag-on-your-head race and one where there was a series of hoops which they had to stop and put over their body before running to the next one.
Yayyyy, he won the hurdles :-)
Mmmmmm, he cheated on the bean bag, held it in place and just ran.
Not surprisingly he won this one too, lol
He also ran right past all the hoops in the hoop race so was the first a t the finishing line again little monkey :-)
I think that's all for this week, while I've been tapping away on the laptop the sun has slowly made an appearance so it looks as though the rest of the afternoon is going to be much brighter.
I hope you all have a lovely week, until next time
