Here's my creative space for today, and probably a good part of the next few wintery months ahead. Redgum fire in the combustion stove (low low emissions), test knits at hand along with a block of lovely fair trade dark chocolate and some sweet organic chai in my favourite cup, which I just noticed has been decorated with a sticker by the sticker fairy. hmm.
I'm sipping my new favourite tea today, I've drank chai for years but my new love is this Tulsi Red Chai Masala; absolutely divine. And even better, it's caffeine free. Big winner in my books, I don't do caffeine well.
I'm knitting with some gorgeous WOOLganics yarn ( the darker pink) a test knit for a new pattern that is transforming with some help from the Rainbow child's imput, and some old stash yarn which is being transformed into the smallest rainbow dress I've ever knit; for Aurora a Barbie sized doll. I'm knitting it on a nine inch circular needle(23cm) which is the tiniest circular I've even seen!
See my little notebook there, it's where I jot down all my scribbles for my pattern developments. I like to use a nice notebook. When Toby started moving around I found him eating a page out of it one day, very handy indeed. It's been lying on the floor all day today and tonight when I went to pick it up I found a special little gift in there, a bit of baby milky chuck, a nice little posset. How special.
What you can't see in this shot is the dollies surrounding my space as I knit, play with bubs and play Barbies all at the same time. Today I was Belle, I like Belle apparently, she's my favourite because she wears a yellow dress apparently.
You may also be able to just spy the mandatory clothes horse that maintains its place beside the fire all winter long.
