No pics today, i left camera at the chalet and am at school this afternoon with kids to blow out a bit. Although the chalets are lovely and I still can't get enough of the view, it is apparent that we are all yearning for our own space and in particular some outdoor space to run around in. we still have about 3 weeks to go and I am missing my sewing machine and spinning wheel! I have been knitting up a storm, and will post pics of the slipper family soon, but just feeling umm constricted, stifled, and down. Oh well, more runs on the beach required I think! Have a lovely week!

A blanket for the girls bed. pattern from living crafts magazine.
A little bit of knittinghas been done in the days following the easter fair, and lots during! Trade could have been better, but it was great to get this pattern finished! The following pics are of my "Victoria vest" by the Rare yarns company, made with wool I found on trade me for fifteen dollars for one kilo, and spun myself as singles. I didn't wash the yarn to set the twist but did block the vest after finishing and am super happy with how the yarn responded, fluffing up and stretching out nicely.
