Hello!! How can it be February already?? Life has become extremely busy, both of our girls are studying at Chiropractic at university and the boys are getting older too! Caid is in his second last year of high school and Kye will be starting high school in a couple of years.
Here’s some news from our side of the world 🙂
Delilah drinking water just outside the front door, this is one of her favourite spots to quench her thirst.
Hard to believe this boy is now 12 years old! He’s enjoying learning about animation on Blender and has even started his own YouTube channel!
This is the cake he wanted, Overwatch, it’s a computer game that he enjoys playing. An amazing confectionary chef called Tiffany made it for us, she is SO talented!!
Erin made a wonderful discovery in our Bamboo bush yesterday, a Rainspider nest! The Rainspider mom is sitting on top of the nest in the photo, she is huge! The nest is literally the same size as it is in the photo. SO exciting!
This is the little zebra I made for someone over in Australia 🙂 He’s on his way there now. I really enjoyed knitting this sweet softie and will have to design a pattern soon. I used pure wool from Nurturing Fibres, a stunning South African yarn dyer and he has been stuffed with Merino fleece, so 100% natural!
Our days are becoming cooler now that we are heading into Autumn here in South Africa, I’m looking forward to the colder months 🙂 What have you been up to lately?
Have a lovely Saturday!
In Massachusetts USA, we had record breaking 2 70+ degree days Tuesday and Wednesday Usual highs are 40 degrees. then Thursday we has snow and freezing rain. Talk about a roller coaster!
So nice hearing from you since so long ago. It is incredible as time flies by. Keep in touch
Hi Linda! It has been so long since I have seen your message pop up! YEA! I always love to read your posts and see your photos. Can you help me figure out how to best use some gorgeous beet-colored hand-dyed Uruguayan Merino wool that I bought this fall (in the US!). It is bulky weight (not specifically given a number, but I am guessing bulky will describe it) and the tag suggests using a US size 9 – 10 needle. It also says the gauge should be 10 stitches per 4″/10cm. I bought 4 skeins at 114 yards/skein.
I have some knitting experience, but I shouldn’t attempt anything complicated! I was hoping to make a simple pullover sweater, but every pattern I see looks so complicated! Could you give me some ideas, please?
Thanks so much,
