Birthdays and Homecomings.

 Today we arrived home happy, tired and very excited to be in living quarters with so much space!!! We arrived midday in time to cook a roast as requested by Archie who turned nine today! I can't believe I have a big nine year old boy. And he is so big too - our feet are the same size (actually, his are a smidgen bigger).
 Today I thought I would show you a few photos of the boys in all of their knitted goods. Archie likes to call himself Wool-f boy as he loves wolves and adores having things knitted for him. Jonno is wearing a jumper knitted by his mum and a beanie knitted by me. Archie is wearing fingerless mittens and a jumper knitted by me and a beanie made by Jonno's mum, Gran Gran.
 All three boys in hand knits beach patrolling.
 I have a little pattern in my head for Archie's mittens so I will type it down soon - it's for age 6 - 10.
 Here is Hugo in a jumper I first knitted for Archie when he was six. I only every make jumpers for Archie to fit him for one season so they are still in good condition for when Hugo receives them. I then make Hugo wear them for years....
 This year Archie decided he wanted a hoodie (I will post the details I promise). He has worn it every day over the last two weeks which is wonderful.

 Although now we are in Tauranga it will probably have a few weeks break. I can't get over how warm it is now we are home. No more layer upon layer of merino for us anymore.
Anyhoo, this big boys is nine and I think the last nine years have been spectacular with him on this planet. I love him.

Lots and lots and lots of love,
Kate xxooxxooxx.
