Yesterday was a productive day. Dear husbands beanie is done and I am so happy with how it turned out. The pattern was so simple to follow (for a novice like me!) and the sewing up (something I don't enjoy) worked out well too.
All in all a successful project!
Knitted bag has been washed again and it's still not shrunk enough. It's too fluffy and I think it's a confirmed failure and will be disposed of :(
I crochet'd a motif for the sunburst poncho (cover photo of pattern book I posted last week) last night just to see how it turned out. The plan was to pack it away and get on with finishing a started project. But alas I just kept going ;) So far I've done 4 and joining as I go. Love it when a pattern does that. I'm not a fan of joining at the end! It doubles the project making time.
Talking of the project list, I've updated it...
Prima poncho - started
Callum's blanket - started

I've started taking some yarny project to work to do at lunch. So will take callums blanket which I can leave under my desk and is easy to pick up and requires little thinking.
Yesterday was also a good sporting day. India won their opening match against Bangladesh convincingly. I do enjoy watching India play :) The sharks (my SA team) won their super 15 match against the cheetahs.
Joshy climbed into my Jolie knitting bag last night so it's in the wash! Silly pussy cat <3
Today is pajama day (yesterday was too, did I mention it?). Rugby, cricket and hooky business makes for a good Sunday xxx
