Knitted Farm Swap

Most evenings lately you would have found me knitting up a mini storm. 
Or needle felting flowers into my knitted garden beds *smile*
My friend Carrie from Crafty Moms Share has organised a wonderful Knitted Farm Swap
And I am so excited to be part of it!
Ten ladies from around the world are all working on squares to swap… 
Some are knitting corn fields, veggie patches, sheep paddocks, ponds… or flower gardens
And now my gardens are ready to start their journey to the States…

I can’t wait to piece our farm together…
I think I will have some excited children at Christmas time don’t you!!

A Feast for Crows (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 4)

And I am enjoying the fourth title in A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin. There are new characters to meet, old ones to revisit and back stories making motivations clearer.
The pace has slowed but it is still a great page turner!
Sharing at Keep Calm Craft On at Frontier Dreams and Yarn Along at Small Things.

Happy knitting,

Flower plots and gnomes

Sometimes I feel that a week without gnome creation is a week wasted. Luckily this little gnomie was a quick knit *smile*

I also knitted up a couple of cuddly, snuggly gnomes for some babes (see here).

In non-gnome knitting, I’ve finished one flower plot ready for planting (of the needle felt kind), and started another. I am knitting 12 as part of the Knitted Farm Swap hosted by Carrie of Crafty Moms Share.

And I need to find a pattern (and some time) to turn this wool into a viking hat for Husband of Mine!

As for reading, I have finished Baking Bread with Children but am still enjoying dipping in to re-read little tidbits. Newly on the bedside table are A Storm of Swords and The Natural Child, parenting from the heart (which I was lucky to win from Faerymother).
