Happy Easter and Buona Pasqua

Image result for clipart happy easter
Hey, did anyone check out the moon last night? Pretty groovy ! We had a total lunar eclipse (sun, earth and moon all in alignment) and Cory took this awesome shot last night.

What’s been going on around here?
Surprise, surprise!.........some knitting
I’ve gone coat hanger mad again!! Being prompted by the fact I simply can’t throw out worthwhile pieces of yarn, some cute little coat hanger covers are in the making. I’ve decided I will make girl and boy styles, so the second cover will have something ‘boy’ on it.

 A little pink baby cardigan knitted in 4 ply baby yarn and fits 0 -3 month. Loved knitting this.
 Had fun knitting this little beauty. I’ve used Big Baby paton yarn, 8 ply. Don’t you just love the way it’s knitted up? It always amazes me how the pattern just happens in front of your eyes.

The simple but effective pattern added to stocking stitch really pops out the colours.
......oh yes......I had some left over yarn......enough to make a baby beanie with a little knobbly bit on the top.
 Yes there was smoke firing off my knitting needles this week.....another little cardigan whipped up for a 4 year old girl. It must’ve been a week of using variegated colours for me. Actually, Heather the feather forced me to use this colour as it was from her stash.

 I’m missing that little wicked witch, she’s taken off on holidays. Hope you’re surviving Suez (and everyone around her, oh really I mean everyone in that state!!! Lol).

Well gals, to all of you who celebrate Easter out there, have a wonderful and Happy Easter. My school holidays have started also and I'm so getting into that sewing shed.The weather has cooled down, so it will be pleasant to sit in there.
Cheers, Anita.

We sat outside and watched the eclipse too. It was well worth it!
Great photo, by the way.
Your knitting is looking great. Love the idea of the coat hangers to use up all the bits.

Gosh, those fingers of yours have been knitting up a storm. Those cardies are all lovely, as are the knitted coat hangers. I love covered coat hangers!
