Baby Beanies, Ice Patterns and Seeds

24 Feb

I’ve been knitting tiny little hats for premature babies at our local hospital. They are in three colours, red for the very poorly ones, orange for this who are getting better and green for those are nearly ready to go home.  Time to contact the co-ordinator for collection. My camera has reproduced the red very badly!

Traffic light hats

Thawing the soup for lunch, this pretty pattern turned up on the icy plastic pint pot as it sat in a pan of cold water.

More seeds arrived today – great delight all round and more plans for Summer colour.

Sweet Peas for scent in the day , Nicotiana for evening scent, Nasturtiums for colour and salads and Poppies for their rich colours and lovely seed pods.

      I love knitting little things! I made lots for the Grand kids when they were very small but once they got to 4 or so, that was enough ! 🙂

        I stopped knitting once my kids got to around 5yrs. I once had a jumper on the go for me for over a year!

          I recently took apart a jumper, well, bits of a jumper, that I was knitting for myself and knitted the bits into a scarf for one of the Grandkids! Women of the same ilk I think! 🙂
