Well it’s the weekend and daddy took charge of doing rugby and swimming this morning. That left me to mind the biggest and the littlest and photograph the gorgeous thick mist outside. My little guy also discovered a big hole in the chicken wire around the fence and escaped…………adding that job to the ‘to do’ list. I was watching him thinking he’s not going to get out and he was probably thinking that no one was watching him. I can’t take my eyes off him for a second these days as he is always into something – toilet rolls in the toilet, pulling out my knitting, emptying out the pantry. Could be worse, the twins liked to put cutlery down the toilet at any opportunity.
On the knitting front I have been working on keira’s gidday but had a slight hiccup because I started in white thinking it was cream and I ordered more cream last week. I’m trying so hard to knit from the stash so started with what I had and decided to order more to finish it. I decided to knit the body with the new ball of wool only to discover that the yoke was done in white and the yarn I ordered was cream. Oh dear. People, keep your ball bands/tags with your wool as this is what can go wrong when you don’t. The white is just so close to cream but lesson learnt. And of course in this photo it’s clear as day that one ball is white and one is cream but when it arrived they looked so close I couldn’t tell the difference.
And in the meantime I’ve picked up my granny stripe again and hope to finish the edging in the next few days. I’ve used Attic24’s granny stripe pattern and am also following the instructions for her edging here. I’ve used Bendigo cotton and it’s just so soft and draping nicely. I also love that I’ll be able to chuck it in the washer and dryer and it will stay nice and soft over the years. The granny stripe is super easy and a nice change from granny squares and I think the kids are just hoping I get finished it quickly.
I should be jetting off to Noosa tomorrow but am home on nurse duties but have to say that I have a very sweet patient. She has worked out how to shuffle herself through the house using a pillow and we try to get out in the sunshine each day. We have also knuckled down and got stuck into our school work and I’m learning all about nouns, verbs and pronouns all over again. We’ve also been loving the Great British Bake Off and watching Daddy Day Care and Hotel Transylvania for the 50th time.
Have a lovely weekend everyone
