Knitting and a tea party

Sophie 1st BirthdaySophie & taidSophie's birthdaySophie in pink

We’re quite a family of knitters, so when a little girl is having a birthday, she ended up with a peach cardigan from great-grandma, and a pink one from Gran, and a knitted mouse from Aunty. She looks quite happy with things and likes tuna sandwiches and salad, and cake of course.

And it’s always good to make time for a tea party, even if we had frothy coffee instead.

And seeing as it was a lovely day, but a bit cold, we went for a swingalong in our local park.

    How lovely it is to get together with family, especially the little ones. It gives us great satisfaction to see our handy work being worn. What a pity they grow so fast. My sixth grandchild born in December had a knitted blanket from me, so hopefully I will see it in use for a bit longer.

    Gosh, that year went fast, didn’t it? I wonder if she’s inherited the knitting genes too, at least she’ll have plenty of people to teach her.

  9. What a lucky little birthday girl to have so many hand~made gifts! I crocheted a couple of blankets, a jacket and a gilet for my granddaughter ~ and she loved wearing them. The cardigan I knitted was a bit strange though, the fronts dipped down so I gave that up as a bad job! You’re granddaughter is adaorable ~ I can’t believe that she’s already a year old! though. It seems like only yesterday you were telling us that she was on her way! 🙂
