Maisie and I have just been for a walk into the village and this is what she looked like. I made her the hat a few weeks ago and she loves to wear it which pleases me, as you can imagine. Maisie has always looked good in a hat, right since she was tiny and I used to put one of those oh so cute little bands with a bow on round her gorgeous little head. Even though Maisie is only 11 years old she is growing up at the rate of knits oops I mean knots (that really was a typo!) and it’s hard to keep up with her need for clothes that fit. We found the little skirt and a couple of T-shirts on our shopping jaunt yesterday, she keeps saying ‘I really love this skirt Mum’…she looks so pretty today and I think she felt good too because she won’t let me take too many photos of her these days.
Please excuse the messy garden, I really do love to have a pretty garden but this isn’t ours and I didn’t realise we would be here so long, so I have never had the love feeling to make this one special. I do have loads of pots on the patio though but they need some attention. A trip to the garden centre might be a good idea as soon as the spring flowers start to pop!
PS…I have just taken delivery of Elizabeth Zimmerman’s ‘The Opinionated Knitter’ from Amazon.com. The order cost me $38.95 (do I put the $ before or after the number?) and took just 11 days to arrive from the States. I tried to get this book from Amazon.co.uk but it was selling for £41 which is more or less double what I paid in dollars from US. I know it would have arrived the next day if I had bought it from the UK but the savings were well worth the wait :^) I got that surprise jacket pattern at last!!
