bbbrrr, it's freezing out there today and with the official start of winter only a few days away now, we've been quite lucky to be still having nice sunny days but not today!
On my knitting needles over the past few weeks have been a few little baby items, firstly, a little set for one of the mums that has a little girl going to Hannah's daycare, who has recently had a little boy, Geordie, what a cute name.

Another simple rib baby hat
I have a baby shower to go this coming Sunday so I'm hoping to get another pair of booties knitted in time to go with this little hat and then I'm going to start a baby blanket using this pattern. Fingers crossed it will be done by August!
I love the new look of the Australian Homespun magazine, its so pretty! I've bought this magazine on and off again for many years now so have quite a few on my craft shelves. Another recent buy was the latest issue of the Simply Crochet magazine - I'd bought a few of the earlier digital issues, but I do like the real thing!
I started this book recently, 600 + pages, gulp! But its a good read and I'm now just over half way.
Lastly for today, my little water babe - we spent a relaxing Saturday afternoon at the pools recently and Hannah's confidence in the water is amazing, must be from all the time we spent in our pool over the summer.
Hannah is off to a birthday party at the pools this coming weekend so she's really excited, swimming and cake, perfect!
