a rainy november day

Such a dreary, rainy day today. But it was the perfect day to have the heating on, cuddle up and do homely things like draw green cat whiskers on your face,
make granola,
play Lego
read lots of stories, climb on the table until your mama is pulling her hair out with frustration, knitting, cuddling, snoozing.
I finished up my rainbow knitting of the past several weeks.
Another rainbow gnome hat. This is from the pattern in the Children's Year book project 57. This just happens to be the September project with the Children's Year Craft along so I am delighted to be able to participate in that again as my attendance has been ahem some what lacking.
It is knitted for a dear little friend of ours who will be turning 4 very soon and his mama requested this hat for him after seeing Benny's.
It is knitted in cotton, so it has come out a bit longer than Benny's one and I also decided to knit an I-cord as a tie rather than going for the collar as I thought the collar may have less give in it done in cotton.
The colours are lovely :-)
I'm working on a couple of things at the moment, well lots of dolls really. I have a good few custom orders still to complete, but I am also trying to make a few little changes to some dolls that have been in my Etsy shop for a while. They are in need of a few knitted lovelies I think and I am hoping that they may find their way under someones Christmas tree :-)

What are you working on at the moment?


  1. That is such a lovely gnome hat! So bright and colourful, definitely good for cheering up a dreary day!
    Working on? GAifts of course, although it may take until next christmas at this rate ;)

  2. Love, love, love the hat! And I love cosy, rainy days. :)

  3. Lovely day - especially for whiskers. Yes, that hat is wonderful! I must make some granola - something I always intend to do. I am knitting a few bits for a new niece due any day.
