Its a little later than I hoped to update but I’ve been making my last Christmas cake and mixing up my pudding mixture which just needs to sit overnight before I can get them ready for boiling. The whole house has a lovely smell of Christmas all this week and the weather has obliged and turned chilly to add to it.
This past week has been busy with swimming finishing up for the children and music, we skip this week music wise for mid term and with lots of to-ing and fro-ing its been hectic and with the start of Xmas baking in the middle well there’s not been many moments for knitting.
Baby wise everything is on track and can you believe it that I’m now under 50 days !! Wow where did that time go ! I’ve packed the hospital bags this week so they are ready whenever baby decides to make its entrance to this world and that’s another thing ticked off the list and I’m happy to say we have decided on names, to be revealed when baby is born !! Sorry I won’t even be giving a hint, you all need patience lol
Knitting wise this week I’ve started and finished these children’s mittens in Elizabeth’s colours to match her hat and I had just enough of the light pink yarn to complete them !
This is her set now complete and another item ticked off my to do for Christmas list !

I am also 3/4 way through another dishcloth. It is the same pattern as last weeks cloth. Its a seeded stripe dishcloth . Last weeks and this weeks cloths have both been knit in King Coles Bamboo Cotton Prints and the lovely design of last weeks yarn happened all by itself and I can claim no credit for it.

This week I hope to finish this cloth and get a start made on Ruairí’s hat and if I’m very lucky with the children being off for midterm I’ll also get the mittens to match done.
Looking forward to seeing what you have all been up to this week.
