have been busy again/ Peasant top tutorial link

I really dont have time at the moment to up date you on our lives :( I really want to as its been busy here, and often people ask me how I cope, and I would love to give you some insite into my day and life of 'coping'. One thing can be quickly said, that being that I cope due to a wonderful husband who I love dearly and who helps me out, folding washing, getting kids to bed, when he comes home from work there is no 'me time' its straight into being a husband and a father! The other things that helps me cope is endulging in time for myself with my crafts. As a consequence often things are not as tidy as I would like them but hey, it will all get done in good time.

So here is the Mini Wonder Soaker that I knitted as a gift. I posted it today, and I hope that the new owner likes it. There are some knits where there are meant to be purls, and there are other errors that I wont point out. The kitchener stitch is a pain to do, so it too is not perfect. I cast on the top in larger needles so that it would stretch over a big bulky nappy. Its my first attempt at this pattern and I will be knitting it again really really soon :)

And then there is the sewing. I have been trying out a pattern that I found on a blog, and its rather simple and I must share it with you:


And this is what it created:
