Knitting Not Sewing.

A real change in the weather today. Misty, showery, low visability, but still quite warm. So, NO Kiwifruit work today.( far too wet and drippy, the light would be poor too ) Instead, cleaning, making foccacia bread, writing letters and sewing up the booties I have been knitting in the evenings lately. I've been too tired to sew so have sat watching Australian Flood news on SKY News and knitting to keep awake. The booties are for my niece who is expecting her 3rd daughter next month. 
 I am lucky to have 3 lovely nieces.I laughed when I saw the price I paid for that knitting booklet was 22cents....patterns are still good. Many little feet have been covered with booties from that or 2 even older books I have. ( they are a tad tatty now )
* Leanne I sent the bulbs today so you should get them tomorrow or Thursday.
* Sal the photos didn't come back this time so hope you have them now.

22c! I bet you've had good value for that price!

I have my mother in law bootie patterns - still my favourite. But Debbie Bliss does do some adorable baby items.

Thanks I'll let you know when the bulbs arrive.

Love Leanne

I have those bootee patterns too. Used to love knitting them, but find it too hot over here- my hands are never dry.
Love the Waihi Beach picsXX
