Bead Counting.

 Ummmm, so that was a pretty racy typo for those of you who caught it in yesterday's post... eeeek! Anyhoo, enough of that. I came up with the best game to solve one of those silly, time consuming incidents that occasionally happen in a crafty house. Yesterday I spilt a jar filled with beads and buttons (pictured above) upstairs in our biggest room. Beads were everywhere and I couldn't face picking them up. So this morning I challenged Hugo to a competition. Whoever picked up the most buttons and beads (with a weigh in rather than a count up at the end), would win $1. He won!!!!!!! And now I have a wonderfully clearish floor again!!! Winners all round I say.
 This afternoon we are heading off to school for a fun games night. There's going to be a skill test for the adults with a round including knitting. I don't think I'm allowed to compete sadly. And now I come to think of it, I should have had Jonno in training for it over the last few days. Luckily his mother taught him very well!
And what is this photo of... not another pair of wrist warmers. I couldn't resist uploading it - sorry.
Lots of love,
Kate xxooxx.


  1. The games night sounds terrific! Might have to pass the idea on to our fundraising committee... Enjoy!

    PS So sorry I missed the typo!

  2. Clever you to con Hugo....good practice for his fine motor skills, picking up all those little beads. As a further practice you could throw hundreds and thousands down for him to pick up! I like the mittens! Love Mum

  3. I have just come across your blog and love all your crochet and knitting

  4. I am looking for the pattern of the crocheted sequin fingerless gloves. Can you tell me where I'd find it? Thank you.
