Breakus Interruptus

I know, I know! The lure this afternoon was just too great. A bit of blog surfing (which I originally alloted myself half-an-hour) has resulted in a whole nap time session and this post. Ack!

Fortunately, I actually had a few crafty things to write about. I had been stalking this pattern on Etsy for a few months, before I finally took the plunge a fortnight ago. And my goodness! It's the most ladylike scarf I've ever seen....or made. This is my practice version in Sublime worsted weight blend of cashmere, merino and silk. I made it longer than the pattern wanted, cos I like it nice and dangly. This one's in vintage red, which I'll be keeping.


But for my mum's Mother's Day package I hooked it up in the mulberry. The true colour is more like a dusky pink. So pretty!


And yes, she loves it! In fact it matches her outfit perfectly when we picked her up for a lunch outing today.

One more thingy, I promised you peeps a photo of the wee one sporting that patchwork smock I made two months ago. I decked her out in it for a party last weekend. Here's the cutie posing with the mostly-eaten bribe. Yes, I do that, too.


Too all you mums and grandmums....hope you're having a nice Mother's Day!

Cheerio! (I'm going back to the bloggus breakus)

she's such a cutie and I just remember her little legs running around the park picking up food as she goes....I still giggle when I think of it!

Oh I love that scarf, it looks absolutely stunning. Red is a great color and the sublime yarn would be extremely soft too. Your mum's looks just as gorgeous in pink. Your daughter's patchwork smock dress is so cute. Bribes nearly always work here too.
