I’ve just realised we have a little over 4 weeks left of this year for year of projects !
This week has seen a little more work on projects than last, mainly due to the fact that I’ve had to sit and amuse Elizabeth more as she is good but is hurtling around like normal or thinking she’s fine and suddenly falls and hurts herself again. We are due back to the dr Tuesday week and I dread to think what the x-ray will show !
I finished the market bag I was crocheting for my cousin’s birthday. It turned out lovely and I think will make a wonderful beach bag. I’m going to get round to crocheting one for myself for my books to take them to and from the library.
I also finished the Milo Vest and thanks to the hints and tips I got on Wednesdays WIP from other ladies who have knit this I added an extra inch or two to the length so Lady Evelyn will get a little longer. This will fit her come September and hopefully as she get’s her feet under her some then and slims down as they do it will last a good few months. So thank you for all who gave the advice, its hints like that, that end up being invaluable ! I just need to block this now but here’s a picture before blocking. As you can see it is in a lovely pale shade of pink and the girls chose the X +O’s cable for Evelyn’s vest.
I have also been working on the cushion cover and it is nearing the stage of putting together so we shall see now how that goes !
This week I’m hoping to get the cushion cover complete, block the vest and work on if not finish Alan’s stormy sky socks. I want to get as many wip’s out of the way before the end of this year’s yop, leaving a clean slate for next year.
Now I have the chance to get some knitting machines from my grandmother who is no longer able to knit but I don’t know the first clue about knitting on them, she has the instructions so I’m not worried about figuring it out but I kind of feel this is cheating a little at knitting ! What are your thoughts on knitting machines ?
Finally before I leave you I have some pictures of Lady Evelyn, Elizabeth was not in the mood this week with her arm for pictures but Evelyn was a willing model, I can’t wait for the summer when I’ll have all the children to take photos off.
Here she is sitting up in her play pen playing safely with her toys, I don’t quite trust the sitting up yet as she is still at the stage of just flopping back lying down when the mood strikes and that does nothing for a momma’s heart !
Ruairi this week got some funny glasses in school as a prize, well his best friend Jake (who he calls Duke and has done from they met last September lol) and him both got some so had great sport on Friday evening playing around with them on. Here he is modelling them for me !
Always being a great boy to share and involve his sister, I really think he sees her as someone to silent go along with his games lol decided to let Evelyn model them also and who could resist snapping a photo of that, I sure couldn’t !
This photo is just to funny for words and makes me laugh whenever I catch a glimpse of it ! I think it’s her expression combined with the glasses !
Now that I’ve finished showing off family photos I’m off to check out everyone’s work.
