Mr Tubs In His New Top

Here's the little top I made for Leon. I used this pattern for the base of the item, but made it with short sleeved because he's a bit of a sleeve chewer and the yarn sheds a bit. I didn't want him to start coughing up blue fur balls! I also gave it a collar instead of a hood, so now it's more of a polo shirt than a hoodie!

 I used King Cole Merino Blend 4ply that my Grandma gave to me, and a 3.5mm hook. I should have straightened it up a bit for the photo, it's not really as wonky as it looks here.  :)

My little monkey snuggled up with his.

This is a photo of Leon a couple of weeks ago being cheeky.

Your eyes are like pies, they're telling me lies! ;)

See ya later!

Musical Interlude!

Hi! It's been pretty hectic around here recently. Leon's a bit of an awkward customer at times, he cries a lot more than Dylan ever did. It's all been a bit of a shock to the system, but we are getting used to his loud voice, gradually! :)

I have got a little top to share with you that I've crocheted for Leon recently, I'll have to try take some pics of it later. And whilst making it, I discovered that wool gives me dermatitis on my hands. Ouch! I haven't managed to do anything from the classes I've taken, but they're  all go at your own pace classes, so I can go back to them later when I've got more time.

We're going to Ripon to visit my sister Clare and her family today, so I'm looking forward to that.  Enjoy the remainder of your weekend.

For now here's  song I like at the moment.

See you soon!
