Thinking Pink and some red

I am so happy to finally get a chance to post some of my recent knitting projects. As many of you are aware, I have no computer access since last October and have been using Leiny's, her charger had to be replaced recently, this left me without weekend access too. As a result I did get a lot of knitting done over the last few weeks.

In preparation for my little grand daughter due on July 4th I filled two little cases with little dresses, two knitted jumpers and a knitted all in one with little pink ears on the hood.

I love working with Debbie Bliss Baby Casmerino, so soft and shiny, and as we are all cat lovers I choose this pattern from Zoe Mellor's book Nursery Knits.

The week before Easter I finally got the Kitchen Aid I have been lusting for and Leiny and Rommeij made over one hundred and fifty cup cakes for our Easter gathering.

The living room sofa is now sporting this bed quilt in cheery red and green.

I have not been able to leave comments on all your blogs but I have managed to take a look at many of you and I am amazed at the beautiful work, ideas and creativity you share. You always inspire me. Thank you very much.

Big hugs,

I know how challenging it is to be without a computer so have no worries about visiting.

Oh I love to see grandmothers in action. Will there ever be such a well-dressed little grandgirlie?! I know that you're having fun with it.

Love your new bright red Kitchenaid, too. You need and deserve it.
