I’m sitting here with the baby, a couple of scotch finger biscuits and my coffee taking a few minutes to get a blog post up today. May is turning out to the busiest month ever here as retro daddy is the busiest at work, we start our weekly preparations for First Holy Communion tonight (and of course I’m a group leader because they needed a new one for a group and I can’t say no), all the sports are in full swing, I’ve got one home sick, still have 2 school applications to do this month, one birthday party to organise and host and some big decluttering jobs to get on top of. Phew.
I need to knit most days just for my sanity and to destress after the day but with so much on I’m only knitting when the house is clean and washing sorted (sorted, not put away).And last night spent a nice quiet hour finishing off the little wallaby I’d been knitting. You can see why I love the 200g balls from Bendigo Woollen Mills. I’ve still got plenty left and could probably do 2 cardigans from the 1 big ball. The pattern is Wallaby by tiKKi and I’ll share more of the details once it’s finished and ready to gift.
Now all that’s left to do is weave in my ends, lightly block it (I just wet it gently and stretch out a little on a towel, I use a couple of pins to keep edges in place/straight and then leave to dry) and find the perfect button. The colour really is beautiful. Brick in Luxury by Bendigo Woollen Mills. Grab it in the 8 ply if there is still some available as it’s a perfect red.
And that’s all from me. Have a great day and hopefully it’s less busy than mine.
