A whole month without posting. Not sure what happened there - a combination of doing several secret projects and just general writer's block I think. And it seems that the longer you leave it, the harder it is to get back to it.
Just a quick catch up with some photos then!
I also joined Pinterest a few weeks ago and found the pattern for the bunny on Vanessa's board. He was great fun to make - you start on the ears and he gets cuter and cuter as he gets bigger. A bit fiddly as you work in the round on 6 stitches, and mine was done on a hook nr. 4 - when bunny arrived in Australia, Vanessa told me she'd been making the same bunny herself the week before but on hook size 2 - I don't know how she does it!!
North Lyme hat. This hat and I didn't get on very well while I was knitting it, and consequently it didn't turn out quite like the pattern. I do love the colours though and it did keep me warm while we were away.
The last few months have seen me involved in several swaps. I'm really enjoying them, as you get to know new people with similar interests and in some cases make new friends. The swap I'm working on right now has Spring as its theme, which is harder than it may seem at first sight. Fortunately my partner Claire is also on Pinterest so by following her I think I have a little bit of an idea of what she likes (in fact, we have such similar taste that I repin most of her pins!). I got started on her swap this weekend and have this to show for it so far
Five down, 20 more to go!
Almost 10 year old is showing off his football skills here. I had parents evening for him recently and it was lovely to hear how settled and happy he is.
And with that, I'm crawling back under my sleeping bag - woke up with a slight bug this morning and have felt out of sorts all day. Probably something that an early night will soon sort!
