A family day minus 1

I recently celebrated my bithday. Kids and I had a lovely birthday tea. It was nice to have them all round the table in one go!! Archie helped me bake the cake and he decorated it lol!! Mia was poorly and din't eat a thing despite having the same piece of pasta on her fork the entire time.

And of course he needed to blow the candles out!! Its such a shame that the hubby was working :(

This & That

Well i tried intarsia on the baby berry hat and it was a complete disaster so fairisle is definately the way to go with these hats.

Archie & Mia bought me some flowers for Mothers Day. I absolutely LOVE the colours in them so this evening I am going to dye some wool to make Mia a shrug.

Progress pics
Not entirely sure how i feel about it, i think i would change the way i use those colours on the skein. Can't wait to see it dried though.

I made this using the knitting with 2 colours method, I will be making next one using intarsia method and see what the difference is with them.
