Morning bloggers, the cold is on the mend thankfully and I’m finally feeling somewhat normal lol.
Work this week has been sporadic with me grabbing time here and there as I could. With the little ones with colds and tummy bugs my time was limited.
I did finish off the Gryffindor Beanie as when my cold hit after the little ones were better and I couldn’t move I sat and knit lol.
James was thrilled with it and even agreed to model it for me, a rare treat indeed as he’s at that age (11) where its not cool to do these things with Mammy lol. Note his slightly longer hair do, something else he says is cool, I’ve yet to be convinced but he must start making these decisions himself.
I think he may have his eye on more beanies after this, just so he can keep his cool look lol

All of the scarves and beanie patterns are from the Charmed Knits book by Alison Hansel a great book. I know some of you were wondering where I got them. I bought my copy from Amazon and now that the children have found it I won’t tell you how many things they have there eye on !
While Dominic was at piano practice during the week I got some more done on Caoimhe’s sock and I’m near about an inch from the heel part. Hopefully this week I’ll get to it as she’s quiet impatient to have them finished and this is only the first one ! Better get knitting pretty quick lol
I guess looking at the pink shades coming in now it may be girrly and there’s no way any of boys will entertain pink!
But my friend Tricia at Tricia’s Craft Box was telling me how our Lidl stores here in Ireland were selling yarn this Thursday but with my cold I didn’t get out but hubby who very kindly went to do the shopping for me took a trip up to the extra store and got me two packs of each colourway in the sock yarn that they had ! Way to go hubby 😀 (both on the shopping and buying yarn !)

Now my boys certainly liked the grey and blue mixes on the right lol. I now need to adjust my list for the rest of the year as I need to knit them each some socks and beanies. With this in mind I’m going to move some of the scarves to next years list along with the huge list the children have of what the want knitted lol. I’m going to keep trying to have a scarf finished in the month so this month I aim to finish the Victorian Spring Scarf.
Thank you all for the comments on last weeks post and as ever you are right, a scarf can never be to long so I shall knit the 18 and knit a further 9 repeats onto that and then review it. Its a slightly thinner scarf so I think it might look pretty fashionable longer.
Until next week,
