Where does the time go?

Don't you wish there were more hours in the day? it's seems impossible to fit everything in.  I would just love to have the time to sit for hours unhurried and read about what everyone's been getting up to but there always seems to be something else to do!  Don't you find that too? 

One of the reason's I'm so busy at the moment is because I'm knitting/crocheting like crazy trying to get as much made for the Syrian knitting Appeal before the deadline which will take me up until the middle of November.  

Another reason is a friend asked me to make her a pram cover for her little granddaughter  this was no ordinary cover and it seemed to take forever but thankfully it's finished now and I will be telling you all about it soon.

So although I have been very dilatory about visiting your blogs please forgive me I will be popping in as soon as I have a moment.

I have made time to make more preemie hats for the guardian grandmas however, it's lovely to make something quick and have a finished result.

Preemie Hats 2


So cute don't you think?



You can find the pattern for these little hats here.
They weigh in at 62 grams.

I also had time today to change my blog header to make it look just a bit more Autumnal I hope you like it.

So what stash am I busting now? wait for it! ........



Now that's 1600 grams of Aran weight yarn, that should keep me busy for a while! lets see how many things I can make with it. :)

Have a great weekend !

  9. Hi Linda, the hats look great and I'm sure they will go where they are most needed. The stash of Aran yarn looks like the colours will compliment one another and I look forward to what you do with it.

    I had a weekend away visiting my new baby grandson, he's just adorable. I took some crochet with me and did a little whilst I was away. I have the luxury of a day to myself today and I am relaxing with my yarn.

    I would dearly love more hours in the day :-)

How lovely Linda, spending time with your new grandson, I can't think of anything I would like do do more (one day hopefully haha) I hope that you have enjoyed your relaxing day and made something sweet with your yarn, I can think of a great many things with a lovely grandson to crochet for. :)

  10. Cute little hats, Linda! And I really like your new header, beautifully autumnal and the little fellows are soo sweet! ♥ About not having time enough, it's the same to me. There are so many patterns I'd like to make and so many blogs I'd like to read and comment, but the day only has 24 hours and many duties that have nothing to do with blogging or woolly things ;-). We can't change it so we have to make the best out of it!
