Good Morning, Charlie

Not quite Farrah but close enough...

I loved knitting this, it was very fun. The chart was great to read and went fast. All that is left is the belt loops, I'm almost thinking I might leave them off so I can close it with a wooden bar brooch thingy if I feel like it.

In other FO news, here's Little Man's jumper. Made (almost) from scratch, as I spun, dyed and knitted the yarn.
Shearing the sheep may be next on the list (although seeing how FILTHY sheep are, maybe not).







As usual, Little Man is moving like a speeding bullet about the place and thus, hard to get a clear pic of.

So as you can see this week has been FLAT OUT here at Bear central. On top of all this my mum has been visiting, so we have been kept busy going out, shopping, running round the park with Little Man, all those 'nana is visiting' type activities.
Oh and I got this fab cookbook, I would seriously have bought it for the cover alone, but as a bonus it full of scrumptious recipes. Off to curl up on the couch with it now.

It's gorgeous and looks fabulous in brown. The pattern is really well defined in that yarn. I love it.

Little Man looks really sweet in his sweater.

Beautiful job on the Starsky (and impressive on the jumper done by hand from start to finish!).

I love the cinematography that went into this post. Very fun.

Hilarious!! I even made JT come and have a look - It looks brilliant!! So chic! Little Man's jumper looks great to what an achievement from sliver to sweater. I've only managed hats with my handspun so far! (but it is a goal in i2006 to knit a real garment from my handspun!!
