Knitting Adventures … Bandanna Cowl …

_MG_2718-1Hey everyone … just a quick post this time … I realised I hadn’t shared pictures if this knit before and thought I’d do a quick one about it now … this started out as a “I dont know what to Knit so I’ll just start something and see where I end up” kinda project …

Weekly Roundup … Busy Knitting & Weekend Plans …

IMG_20140827_120135Hey everyone … this week feels like its just flown by … which I guess isn’t a bad thing … I’ve thankfully been sleeping better too so I’m waking up naturally before my alarm and without feeling as tired throughout the day … although I was woken up rather unceremoniously by Derek this morning taking a slow stroll over my tummy to get my attention … I guess he is trying a new tactic to get his breakfast …

_MG_1391-1Hey everyone … one of the best things we did while we were staying at the Safari Lodge was to do an early morning walk with the Cheetahs … it was a lot of fun tracking them down on foot and finally finding them … they are tolerant to humans being around and close to them but obviously we still need to keep our distance cause they are still wild animals and not pets …
