My Creative Space

I actually got to do some craft this week! I ordered some knit knit kits last week for some knitting to happen in the car our holidays but I decided to get started on one of the project on Tuesday night.

Knitting still takes me ages so I still have only gotten this far


but I am hoping it will resemble something like this.

I still haven't had the courage to try something more difficult than a simple scarf or in this case a snood.

But I am hoping to try my hand at this over the next two weeks.


We will have a lot of time in the car whilst away so I should be able to use that time to get some knitting some!

I am linking up with Our Creative Spaces today. I missed it last week :-( Pop on over and check out all the creative goodness!

Have you done anything crafty lately?

Caden is jumping out of his skin as he so excited about us leaving for holidays very soon. He has all the days planned out, when we are going to the zoo, when we are visiting Nanna M (my Nanna) and when we will be building the snowmen. Hopefully I can harness his enthusiasm and turn it into something constructive as I have a lot of items on my to do list. Not only to I have to make sure we have everything for our holidays. I also have to make sure the house is spotless as my Grandparents are coming to look after everything for us.

Every night Caden and Mahli help me to be Ethan to bed. Lately they have progressed to telling him "We love you to the moon and back and see you in the morning" as I put him in his cot each night. If only they were that nice to each other things would be so much easier around here.

Actually Caden was laying on the couch last night and Mahli came up and gave him a kiss on the cheek... Caden told her he didn't like kisses so that made her do it more... which resulted in WWIII.

  1. That's going to be a lovely scarf!

    I hear you with the WWIII thing. My big two are so sweet with their little brother, I just wish they were as nice to each other!

  2. it's a little more complex than a scarf ;)
    but with any pattern, all it really takes is patience and a computer near by that you can google/youtube with!
    hope you have a fabulous holiday!
