Showing posts from September, 2011

It is amazing weather for the end of September.

H brought home from school a letter relating to a trip he will be doing with school next Monday to Steam Museum in Swindon as this year they are studying World War II and he is required to dress in the appropriate clothing of the period. 

So I am doing my quickest ever knitting project of a tank top for him from an pattern I am adapting and P is making him a tie, which is so sweet bearing in mind she never knits!!
