My list of possible makes is already growing and we're only one week in to 2011. Earlier this week I got the urge to make something full of colour. After a few days thinking, I finally settled on this children's scarf (which will be mine for sharing with the kiddies, not the other way round).
It's been very addictive and has taken over from the two jumpers I should be finishing, the socks I promised Mr Bun and an order or two. I get too easily seduced by trying out a new pattern and working with different colours. I've been up way past midnight hooking away so I'm feeling a bit bleary eyed today.
There is one other project I'm loving at the moment and that's this snood for my mum. I made Eldest Bun a seagreen one, as requested, for Christmas and then my mum hinted that she'd like one too. While I worked a few rounds on this last night Mr Bun read The Dead to us, his favourite story from Joyce's Dubliners. He likes to read it on Epiphany. It's a very important book for various reasons, two reasons being our girls who have one of their two middle names taken from the stories. Eldest Bun is Eveline Raine and Little Bun is Berry Araby. Their other middle names are linked to their birth. Raine as there was an almightly storm when Eldest was born and Berry for Littlest as she was an 11lb dark haired bundle when she arrived.
Now she is a much bigger girl she has her own babies to look after. Her most loved is Kitty (in the middle). I have been given a long list of clothing requests for Kitty. For christmas I knitted her a purple cardigan to match the one wrapped up with it for Little Bun. I think she looks beautiful besides Violet and Jemima.
Today was a non-working day so I had a vague plan to start cutting squares for Eldest Bun's memory quilt. Then Little Bun got invited to dinner this evening with her very best friend and his family for his birthday. She asked me to make him a pencil case as he loved hers so much. Halfway through I ran out of floss and then realised I didn't have a zip so it all took more than the hour I thought it would. Pah. Finally it was finished and filled with Dr Who bits and bobs before a quick wrap up.
Now it's very quiet here this evening as Eldest Bun is out too at a sleepover, I think I need to pour us both a glass of wine and start the weekend here before Little Bun returns.
