Today's post is brought to you by the colour pink

We are a couple of days into the spring holidays and life has slowed down considerably. We are taking things easy and enjoying the sunshine (and wind). Life is good. There has been a lot of time for cuddling and laughing but very little for knitting. On Saturday I started something new-ish...
Since I made the samples for my Sky Full of Stars pattern, Little Miss has been asking for her own version - but in pink. When I saw the chunky yarn I used (Sirdar Softspun Chunky) was on sale for £1.55 a ball, I decided to make her a child's version. Unlike the original design, this does not need to be multi-way as she only wants to wear it as a shrug, so it has a completely different construction but the same over-all effect. I think it's going to take just 2 balls of yarn and I'm almost at the end of the first, so hopefully I'll get to finish and block it soon - especially as she is on my case.

I also have two more projects that I also need to finish off before I can show you, but we'll have to see how the week goes. Right now, we're off for a picnic.
