I have been dying to start a knitting project and at last I have. I found this old knitting book in my collection I got from my mum, it is a baby jacket my grandmother made for my daughter many years ago. I thought I would make the set for my son and daughter-in-law who are expecting in november.
The book has about fourteen different crochet and knitted patterns of layette and shawls. We had our first open fire last night, the nights and mornings are starting to get a bit chilly and it was nice sitting there knitting.
I went and picked the last of the corn this morning and cherry tomatoes before the frost hits. The veggie patch is coming to an end and I have to get out there and attack those weeds and prepare the beds for my winter crop. The days are much shorter now that daylight savings has ended and my out door time has amounted to zilch any way I am pleased that my pantry and freezer is full of this years harvest.
We have been busy with the shop and have now decided to make 90% of our furniture ourselves. Below is a box bookcase and a single bed we made for a little boy who was turning two yesterday. His mum was doing his room up and he was moving up to a big boys bed, how sweet.
We also made a bedside table for him as well but I didn't get a picture of that.
This is a nice simple bed that is very solid, we thought we will do it in double and queen sizes as well and sell it at a affordable price. It is so hard these days to buy value for money. I think I will call this bed the "Stockman", what do you think?
