Crazy Hair Day

At school today it is Crazy Hair day to raise money for the Leukimia Foundation though some of the children are going to whole way and doing the Shave for a Cure. Here's how my two left the house.
Last year we did the hair colour thing but not this time. Between the chemicals and aerosol of a spray, not to mention the cost and the fact that you could hardly see the colour in their hair anyway. Most importantly they were happy though Anna has asked me to put more plaits in her hair tonight. Might make the others fall straighter as well. She's been told she can leave it in until Sunday and then we have to go 'normal' again. Have to admit it would be the easiest way to keep her hair tidy and it knots very easily.

Now I'm going to go and hide back under my rock and hope this head cold doesn't get any worse.

Keep smiling :-)

I've not totally disappeared...

... just disappeared a little. This time I won't make any promises that I won't keep. Instead I'll blog when I feel I have something worthwhile to share.

Here's a little something I'm working on for Tangled Yarns. Just a lovely simply Malabrigo Merino Silky scaft in the perfect shade for a man in your life, though I'd be quite happy with this for myself.

While photographing I had some help from a little someone. She tried to make off with the skein for her own collection.

Funny how you forget things. I've forgotten what it is like to have a kitten in the house. All that curiosity and mischieviousness not to mention love. During the day she follows me from room to room, sitting on the sewing, plonking herself in front of the keyboard or chasing her ball of yarn around the spinning wheel. The only time she behaves is when I'm knitting and she sits quietly beside me.

This is Izzy hard at work.

Here's what she got up to last weekend. It was her first meeting with a snake and more than likely not her last.
Keep smiling :-)
