Our little family went back to their farm yesterday, and I am home alone today...not for long though as I have more grandchildren arriving this afternoon. It is the school holidays here, and daylight saving has begun. The holidays, longer evenings and enjoying the children, unfettered by timetables is making me feel festive and time to shake off the last remaining nasty flu energy.......begone I say, and next year I promise to take my flu shot !
Thank you so much for all the lovely words and messages on little Leo's arrival. I appreciate your comments a great deal, and the friends and support through blogland have been an unexpected pleasure !
The bootees for Leo were knitted up very quickly as he had a need, and they are some that I found the pattern for after googling " stay on bootees ". The link is here, and I loved making them because there is absolutely no sewing up. They are knitted in the round just like socks and so use five doublepointed needles. Very quick and super easy.
