Hope you all have had a good week! Here its been its normal busy self with lots of coming and going, everyone thankfully is over bugs so hopefully will stay that way. Next weekend sees the start of our midterm break ! Can you believe it already ! I’m normally counting down the days but have been so busy lately that it has come upon me without me realising it.
Check ups now are heading to every two weeks for another month when they will hit weekly. I’m between the care of my consultant in the hospital and my gp so I see one for one visit and the next visit I go to the other. Everything is on track thankfully. I’m now hitting that part of where I’m so close to the end I just want to get there but must have patience for the final bit lol. Patience is not my strong suit !
I will be back later in the week with updates on stitching and I have been gathering pictures for a cakey post as I have been baking quite a bit and this week sees the start of some Christmas cake’s to be made, Christmas puddings will follow the week after lol.
Knitting wise this week I’ve done ok. I completed Elizabeth’s hat for Xmas. This week I shall work on her mittens, I’m just working out how to stretch her main hat colour enough to do both mittens without having to purchase a second ball, its so tiny the amount extra I’d need that it doesn’t seem worth it. The pattern I used for her hat is this Strib Hat .
I was thinking about the garland I want to hang my mittens on that I completed last week, but I’m still mulling over options as I’m not sure a hanging garland is going to work with the pieces of chocolate in them, it may be to heavy so I’ve not done anything on that yet. I am gathering up the chocolate, 7 pieces for each of 24 mittens is a bit lol.
What I did work on was some crochet ornaments for a small ornament tree I have that I decorate each Xmas with some white lights. I followed the tutorials on The Royal Sisters blog and I did two of each of trees, hearts, rounds and stars. The yarn I used has a sparkle to it which you can’t see really in the pictures but I’m hoping with the lights will twinkle on. I will be a crocheter yet !

The other thing I managed to finish this week was a dishcloth. I used this pattern Seeded Stripe Dishcloth . This is a lovely quick easy pattern to knit up while watching your favourite show. I have a few more of this pattern to knit up as gifts for Christmas.

This is all for this week. I’ve still not managed to get as far as updating my list and adding it in at the end of this post. I think that may remain until the children are off on mid term break lol. I do think I got back round on all of you who left wonderful comments for me. I do read and appreciate them all, if I have forgotten anyone I do apologise, some weeks I just seem to run out of hours and it doesn’t help that I’ve become forgetful.
Looking forward to seeing what everyone has been up to this week.
