Matilda's creations and a Country Road treasure.......

Matilda the kelpie has been way more creative than me this week. Look what she produced, seven beautiful babies! Six boys and a girl, a wonderful achievement for a first litter. DH had to crawl under the house to retrieve the little cuties, but once out they were happy snuggled up to mum. Dad Nipper is proud as punch too, but is not yet allowed visitation, Matilda thinks he's a bit too rambunctious for that. She lets us handle them though and is a wonderful mum.

I have frogged another op-shop treasure, a Country Road 90% wool/10% silk jumper. It was lovely, but had a few little holes in it, so it is now destined to become a clapotis. I loooooove the colour, and the silk content gives it a lovely drape and softness. I am hesitant to cast on yet as I still have my Twilight socks and Woodland Shawl on the needles, so it may have to wait a bit. Too hot for large projects at the moment anyway, bring on winter I say!

Congratulations on your new babies Mon - they are gorgeous. I guess you will be selling most of them, so I hope you find good homes.
I can picture them all, a little bit older, entangled in your knitting wool...lol

Ooooh, new puppies- so very cute- and fun!

Love that green. Good thing for you we don't live closer together, or else I might have to stash liberate...
