THE BIRTHDAY....

... celebrations are continuing as today the postman brought me a wonderful parcel ... all the way from Australia x Sue (www.kiwikidspage.blogspot.com ) sent me a birthday parcel .. I have a new book..


and these beautiful threads ..


AND we went out for dinner too xx Yaay xx

After I finished Adam's jacket I still had an itch to knit so a new project was cast onto my needles ...and some knitting commenced ......


 the back and half a sleeve were done ..... THEN I got side tracked and made a bag..



NOW the reason I made a bag was because I need a home for the reason I was side tracked in the first place ..



and ..




AND MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE....



...they are for my new grandbaby ... if I can bear to put them in the post !! However James .. youngest grandson .. has fallen in love with the giraffe and I LOVE the hippo!! .... Maybe I need to make some more xx lol x mmm .... I will have to think about it .....lol xx

Those animals are so gorgeous. You are such a fast knitter. I have a mug that says on it ' If I knit fast enough does it count as exercise?' I think in your case it probably does!
