Well the stars aligned enough this week for me to finish not one, but TWO gorgeous Benji hats for my two children. We had two attempts at a photo shoot for them, one pre-dinner and one post dinner (hence the lasagne on their chins in the final photos). Miss4yo has proclaimed hers (which is Child Size) as 'the best thing [I've] ever made for anyone' and mr2yo (whose is Toddler size and is a little tight on his quite large head, but will still do this winter) said 'wow, you knitted it me mummy?'.
More details for both projects can be found on my ravelry page if you're interested.
In terms of new beginnings, last night was spent hand-winding 8ply yummy yarn and watching tv. The yarn I was winding will be used in a yet-unannounced new venture I'm working on, and just winding it made me feel like I was really starting to walk down a new path, an exciting and slightly scary but definately a path I'm looking forward to taking.
