After the last pair of legwarmers I made for Alice turned out far too big, I cast another pair of tiny baby sized ones. I actually made them a few weeks ago but I have been really slack at taking pics of the things I’ve been making so I’m catching up now! She has been wearing them heaps, they’re perfect for keeping chubby little legs warm whilst crawling on the cold wood floor in the morning. Good for just hanging out in too.

It would seem that Alice shares the same passion for guinea pigs as Estelle. Lucky little pigs.

Some more afternoon fun…

I guess life is pretty good when you have warm knees.  Whats even better is using up all those little wooly leftovers from other projects.

Everybody’s happy!

There has been a whole lot of snuggling been going on here for the last 2 days. I have a very sick little girl, tonsillitis and bronchitis at the same time is a bit rough for my very nearly 3 year old little princess. Today pretty much anything beyond cuddling on the couch was too much for her. So we stayed on the couch, and cuddled and read and rested. It was actually nice to sit down and just be. I usually struggle to sit still if I can see things around me to be done, but she needed me so I turned a blind eye and just sat.  And knitted.

Then she fell asleep, so I sat and knitted in the absolute quiet.  Bliss!

Knitting is good for the soul. I love taking a ball of wool, with so much potential (it could turn into anything!) and then casting on, adding to it here and there. Row by row, sometimes one or two at a time, sometimes one or two hours of rows at a time. Watching it grow into a hand made item wearable, useful, fun, full of love.

I finished my legwarmers just in time for Alice to try them on when she woke up!

I had intended these to be for Alice but they are a bit too loose around her little legs.

Perfect for Estelle though.

Nothing makes you feel better like two super soft merino snuggles for your legs. Almost as good as a hug from mum.

I did say almost.
