hello harold!

Look who has come to live at my house!

I was very very lucky to receive Harold the giraffe from Fiona's giveaway. He came yesterday in the mail and he's getting in the Christmas spirit by making himself at home under the Christmas tree. Thank you so much Fiona, he is beautiful!

My sister-in-law and wee niece are particular lovers of giraffes, so I bought Homespun magazine to make him a cousin some time in the future. There's also a great quilt pattern in there from another blogger I follow which may have a place in baby's room some time in the future.

I have succumbed to a revolting cold so I'm cosy at home today rather than spreading my germs at work. Perhaps I'll muster the energy to finish off some baby knitting then have something else to show you here. I knitted up this little bear for a friend on the weekend from this Little Cotton Rabbits pattern - my first (though very minor) go at stranded colour knitting and she came out pretty cute I think!
