An easter treat for you!

Hello!
With Easter almost hopping onto our doorstep, I thought I'd show you a super-quick Easter project!
Bubba Joe, who is 3 years old, made this fun wonky string basket & filled it with choccie eggs and took it with him to daycare this morning for Neen, his daycare worker. So, please ignore the slightly yellow photos as the sun had just risen this morning as I took this photos (I hadn't even had my first morning cuppa!)

Undo, redo & make something new

I've been un-ravelling something that was tossed into the back of my stash cupboard.
You see, I had the urge to try something new and to make something just for me!

Made it Monday

There are 52 weeks in a year yet they can disappear so fast, I just wanted to take a few minutes each Monday to capture (in a few words) where did the week go and to share what was made/seen/baked/eaten/heard.
Come on in & join me...

and for my next trick...

I have knitting & crochet projects spread throughout my house, this latest project (a scarf) is currently residing next to my laptop for the 'slow-go' internet that I have! .... I'm actually getting a lot done due to very slow & often very dodgy internet!
I actually undid a cowl that I was making in this Noro yarn and decided to crochet a very long scarf - the above is the second attempt, below is the first attempt!

Some things that I've been doing

It's April, when did that happen? How did that happen? I struggle to know what day it is, let alone the month! Yesterday we were in our shorts & tshirts and at the beach, today I've got my cardigan on & raincoat at hand! 
So, what have I been doing? What have you been doing?
I've been making some envelopes,

Finding time to craft

How do you fit craft time into your day?

When the moon is still in the sky and the day not yet awoken by the sun I rise.   I tip toe through the house, pop the heater & the lamp on, make myself a strong cup of tea and sit down to knit.
A few years ago I would never even contemplated rising at 5am to do anything especially knit but here I find myself each morning, curled up on the couch in a house of silence knitting.

I changed my mind (again)

 
So it was take three with the yarn choices for the Moana dress. I can't believe I changed my mind again! I just wish I could get this started, like it and then quickly finish it and move onto something else!    
Do you ever do that, you know, get enthused about something only to find that your ideals just aren't cutting it?!

Squares not Ovals!!

Looky,  I've finally managed square corners!  I am SO totally impressed with myself, I have learnt how to do M1R & M1L because I never knew that they existed & only knew how to M1... in case you're not a knitter, M1 means make one - increasing to add another stitch & M1R means to make one to the right & M1L means to make one to the left.
I have also sorted out the centre, during the 'great un-do' and have managed to make it smother in the process (by accident), see below - looks neater right?

A Raceway update

I was streaming away on my Raceway wrap, enjoying the 5 hours car trip because of all the knitting I got to do then.....
