Knit-Wit

I have not had a lot of chance to stitch over the last few days but I have been enjoying doing some knitting for a change. It is years since I have done any knitting but when I saw the link to Save the Children on Christines blog I just had to help in their appeal to knit a hat to save a new born baby. I bought four balls of wool - it shows how long it is since I last knit as I was thinking 4 balls would make 4 hats lol think I will get 5 or 6 out of each ball they are so tiny and cute. Also they are so easy I can knit them while talking to Oscar, whereas with stitching I find that its easier to do that after he is in bed because otherwise the frog decides to come and play too.

I am going to keep the knitting wool out until tomorrow evening when Oscar goes home again and then hopefully I will get back to my stitching.

Thanks you for all the lovely comments. In reply to Barbie, I cannot remember the exact colours I am using on the Papillon freebie, most of them are Dinky-Dyes silks but will make sure I list them when I do my next update. I couldnt find a link to your blog Barbie so sorry I havent done you the honour of a return visit.

I have had a number of new people visit recently and I love returning the visit which means I get to find yet another new blog out there (lol to keep me away from my stitching time). I do love seeing what you are all doing though and do try to leave a comment unless I am really in a rush.

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend.

Your hats are awesome! Great job. When my son was born, his head was too large to fit into the hats they gave us at the hospital. And he still has a HUGE head. LOL
