Busy, buy, busy

The countdown to Keira's birthday has begun. In 8 days, she'll be 4. We've been busy with the birthday preparations. I'm trying to buy less commercially produced "stuff", so I'm making invitations, party bags and favours. Check out the invitations. Pink ballgowns - what more can
a little girl want.
For the little girls (14 in total), I've made charm bracelets and for the little boys (all 4 of them!), I'll be making little monsters/aliens from Scoubidou. This has been keeping me super busy!!!!!

On the knitting front, I've started Anais from Norah Gaughan Vol 1. I actually started this 2 weeks ago, made a lot of progress but decided that the it was coming out WAY too small to fit me. So off to the frog pond it went. This is Anais Redux. I'm knitting this in Rowan Linen Drape in purple. The sense of de ja vu is slowing down progress. This is the 2" of 2x2 ribbing. (Yawn!)

I've also started a dress for Keira from Patons Sugar and Spice booklet. She really loves the heart motif in the middle of the dress. So far, this is progressing very quickly. I'm knitting this in GGH Samoa on 4.5mm needles. Joy! I'm going to run out of yarn, so I'll have to make the bodice in a different colour. Oops.
