Lots and lots of finished knitting

I have been trying to finish my WIPs before starting anything new, so there are a few new things I have to show you. I am real impatient knitter and can't wait to start a new project, so I was really pleased I managed to get these finished.

There is a Moebius scarf for my Mum - although not knitted traditionally as a moebius design. It is knitted, twisted and the ends grafted together. This was knitted in Louisa Harding Kashmir DK.
A neckwarmer for somebody for Christmas (not decided yet) knitted in Debbie Bliss cashmerino chunky. Even better that it took just one ball.

A pink cardigan for Evie from Sirdar Snuggly Kisses DK.......

.....and another that I must have started about 5 years ago and never thought I would finish!

The yarn is discontinued (and probably has been for ages) but has a really nice effect and is good and warm for the current weather.

Another cardigan for Evie, this time in Patons 4ply, which is another lovely soft yarn, and most importantly very easy to wash too.

Bless her funny face!

Finally a baby hat and mitten set requested by my sister for her neighbour's grandchild. i hope she remembers the liquorice allsorts she promised for my troubles!!
I am just hoping that it doesn't decide to snow now. i went horse riding this morning and thought my toes were going to drop off!

Pussy Cat, Pussy cat, Where have you been....?

Well not quite to London to visit the Queen, but to Norfolk instead, to Sandringham to visit the Queen.

But she wasn't in, should've phoned first I think.

We had a lovely time anyway, especially as the seasons were changing and the leaves were falling from the trees.

Such fun!

Even when not all of your children will pose nicely for a photo either!

catch me if you can!!!

We stayed in Hunstanton for the weekend and had a lovely walk along the promenade on Sunday, even if it was alittle too much for the youngest. She always looks so cute asleep, as do they all.
We took a trip to the sealife rescue centre and Leah loved it there.

We saw seals, otters, sharks, lots of fish and penguins.

Afterwards we had a few rides on a big slide....

.....with Mummy

and daddy.

Then back to the caravan to feed the ducks. A good time was had by all.
