The last month or so has seen me veering away from the serious toward the more whimsical. I don't know why but it seemed to start with the box of chocolates and cupcakes wall hanging blocks and then I made this. Meet Knitty Norah peg doll!

Then the Monthly Adventures group over on Ravelry decided to have a Dorset Button Along so I learned how to make them and a few of us have become literally hooked. I started off by making a few buttons.

Then I made some jewellery from the buttons.

Then came the holiday ornies made from the buttons.

And my imagination is still running riot! So, another obsession. I suppose I'll just have to go with it until it burns itself out.

Aside from all this fun and IT IS FUN, I knitted this baby dress for a friend's baby.

And finished the Woman's Journal Vintage Jumper for the KCG's Period Garment Scheme.

I did knit the box pleat sleeves too but the instructions on how to sew them in didn't make much sense and, after various attempts, I decided it was probably best to post the jumper back with the sleeves for someone else with a bit more sewing savvy than I to insert.

Haapsalu Sali Draw

Okay, the names were all put in the hat (or rather a strong paper bag in this case) and DH picked one out, unfolded the bit of paper and written on it was this name.


Please get in touch, Carola, so that we can arrange to get the book to you. Congratulations!

Thanks to everyone for their interest.
