O.K... I know that I've been a bit slack with the posts over the last couple of days, but a lot of things have been going on in my little world. For starters my DH and I have just purchased a new property, we officially received the keys on Thursday morning so we've been flat out organising things there. Then I started setting up an online store with my sister-in-law Stephi (I'll let you know more about it later) and in between all of that I've still been working full time, trying to keep an organised house, and also fit in a bit of knitting time. Are you exhausted yet??
Here are the mittens I finished for my little princess. I also promised everyone the pattern so here it is...
cast 28sts onto size 3.0mm dpn's.
k2, p2 until work measures 1.5" (this is the rib).
next row inc by 4 sts evenly around(32sts)

Cut a tail about 5" long and thread through remaining stitches twice, pull tight. Sew in ends using a darning needle. These mittens will fit child 6-12mths.
I started my first pair of socks last night. I just couldn't get the join in the round right and I kept dropping stitches, after 4 attempts at casting on here is what I've done so far.
I'm using the pattern off the link that mandie gave me, so far so good.
Can everyone remember the little jiffy pots that I made about 3 weeks ago out of news paper? Well, my snow peas are growing great guns. They're about 5" tall now and nearly ready to be planted out. I love watching the stages of a plants growth, it's so amazing!!!
