Washing Autumn Away!

Wow!  What a wild, windy and wet day we are having today in Ballarat (and in so many other places around Victoria)!!  It's been such a cold Autumn, and now today the rain had arrived in one big dump.  We've had almost 40mm of rain so far... I think it's finally stopped.  So many puddles laying about and the wind is f-r-e-e-z-i-n-g, but the garden & the oat crop will be loving this rain.  As does my gorgeous little girl (who is just about to turn 4!!! What??!!!):

So while she has fun jumping in puddles (for 5 minutes until I bundle her back inside), I'm quite happy to snuggle on the couch with a blanket, hot cup of tea and my knitting.  Here's something I whipped up today for another little girl, Pepper who's just had her 1st Birthday (I think that deserved a capital 'B').  This earflap hat design is so fantastically unique and simply genius!  It's Reid by Shannon Passmore of Crafty Desires (knit it in DK, worsted or bulky).  I really do love knitting with awesome wool (who doesn't) and this wool really was awesome - Family Roots Willow Merino in 'Grapefruit Love' and trim:

Stay warm (or cool... depending on where you are right now... or what time of the year you read this...)!!
