another baby beanie

this one might be for ours. or my cousin's or my friend from college's or my other friend's or my neighbour's! we'll see who has a girl first... it's slightly bigger than the others, 76 instead of 72 stitches

i finished it last night, i've never done stranded (and woven) colour work before... details on ravelry!

the weather is brilliant today! we're mostly spending it in the garden, relaxing, reading, having some cool (non alcoholic in my case) beer, getting up every now and then to do tiny amounts of pulling weeds, watering, harvesting... and to flee indoors for some shade, we're so lightskinned! factor 25 and i still feel i have to get out of the sun every half hour!

later we are planning to go to eurobaby and/or mothercare to look at some babythings. i've seen a bedside cot on the web that i want to have a look at, it's basically like a co-sleeper, but a proper cot as well. that ticks all the boxes in my book! and it's small enough to fit into our bedroom if we get rid of the bed side tables! if we get a very slim bedside lamp we could still have a reading lamp on the other side of the bed.


  1. The cot looks just right, a great idea.

  2. Wow, that bedside cot is gorgeous. We just decided on a mini co-sleeper that we found hardly used on craigslist. Our bedroom is small, and at 20inches it will barely fit between my side of the bed and the wall, but at least I won't have to get up and walk over to the nursery for a little while!

    Love the beanie! I've knit myself a couple hats with the help of my sister-in-law, but have sort of forgotten how to get started. Will have to look up some instructions so I can make one for our baby, too!
