Snake hats

Back into knitting after being asked to knit couple of snake hats – of course ended up by my younger one asking for a refresh of hers too 😀

Have to admit I quite liked doing them again – although it was a bit of exercise in yarn stretch capability. First one ended up a bit on the small side and I am hoping the second one is better. I tried it on a 5y old and 7y old and was really tempted to ask a random mum with a smaller child can I try it out? Given up on that one in favour of common sense 😉

Extension aftermath and back to crafting

It’s been a busy year – or almost 2. After packing (well most of) the house up, demolishing half, monitoring (i’m not even call it managing – it was fairly close to babysitting) builders and plumbers and electricians etc., then moving back in and finally unpacking, we have now reached perpetual stage of house decorating. Yey… (note the lack of enthusiasm).

I mean, it is fun – when you get a blank slate of a room and you have a purpose of what you want it to be and ideally some kind of a budget. Otherwise – a bit less fun. I have been in never ending clear out loop. And I can’t really see that I’ve even made a dent 😀 And each room already has furniture in and it’s difficult to even create that blank slate of a room – when we are living in other rooms and my other half goes and buys pieces of furniture before we have managed to remove the old ones. Thanks babe – really helpful.

Moaning aside – I have managed to unearth few bags of craft stuff just this week – and I completely forgot about them! It was random knits during the house build stage that I was planning to give away or sell but never got around to taking a pic for the project (yes, I’m a bit on that side) and they got lost in the depths of my mental TO-DO list.

So here are a few – weather you want to see them or not 😀
