Well I'm glad I'm not the only one to have noticed how strange the moon looks like these days!! So low in the sky and just so BIG, it's pretty odd at times!! And I'm glad you liked the look of my cake! I'd share a slice or two with you if I could!! But I'm afraid we munched it all down like little piggies!! ;-)
Today I thought I'd show you what I gave Boyfriend for his birthday. Now you'll understand what I've been doing with my time for the last two months or so. Poor thing, I drowned him in knitted things. He's a bloke after all, so I guess I should have known better. But I just got sooooo excited, I just couldn't resist.
First of all, there was the Baktus scarf. Now this was a request, so I knew it would please. He liked mine so much (and stole it a couple of times during our holiday in Norfolk), I just had to make him one. We even picked the colours together to make sure he'd approve. So there, my second Baktus. Love it as much as the first day I saw it.
Now onto the second present. I was inspired to make it after visiting this lady's blog. She designs her own cloths. But I wasn't going to pay someone to do the hard work, I'm not like that, and actually, I was quite excited at the thought of Designing something. Ok ok, it's pretty simple I know, but I felt really chuffed. Although it didn't come out quite right!! A little elongated if you ask me (it was meant to be a square!) but Boyfriend liked it, and I'll just do better next time.
And finally, the most controversial knitted present. Slippers. You read right. I knitted him some slippers. I feel this may have been one step too far! But you know what, I had great fun making them, and if we ever have a visitor with really big feet (they are a little on the big size even for Boyfriend as I used some chunky yarn), we'll have something at hand to keep them warm.
I personally think they're really cute, pompom and all :-) x
ps: I found the pattern for the slippers on this wonderful blog, they're really easy so have a go! They'd make really cool xmas presents I reckon
