Today I stayedd in my pj's, didn't shower, nor do my hair or even wash my face.

Today i was a slightly neglectful mother, pretending not to notice those little hands dipping into the cookie jar a few times too many, or the little boy who ate all the icing of his dad's finger bun. Hmmm, actually maybe i'm not too neglectful since i made cookies and pink & blue playdough with the little tikes this morning. Lets just say i was neglectful from 10am!

I spent the day making this for a friends little girl.

Getting my boy to model this for me cost me the promise of a treat tomorrow. It just looked so wrong on him. Must be the boyish frame or the way he stands or something!

On the needles

Yet more longies for H(8mths)... These are for next winter, so will leave legs on stitch holders until closer to the time.

The brown wool is 'woolganic' (ahhhh) and the colourful one is my hand dyed 'boutique' wool from BWM.

Shorties finished!

Made from my home dyed wool (bendigo).
I'm really pleased with them. Already cast on another pair! I'm always insanely happy when i finish a project, hence the zillion different photos from every angle! I can't even begin to tell you of the half finished long since abandoned projects in my cupboard. Have slightly cheated, elastic is in the waistband, but not sewn in yet, so that's why it may look a little funky. Next time i'm going to make sure i watch a youtube video on short rows, to avoid getting the little holes.

Jenny's 'pimp my longies' pattern again!
