Happy Birthday Robyn...

For a teenager, we must keep it plain and simple - but black had to be in it somewhere too!

One day wonders...

Today I thought about what to achieve in a day and wanted it to be something spectacular but couldn't get my head into doing anything at all so I've finished the front to DH's new sweater and started a sleeve, I did say I'd like to have it finished before bump becomes baby but never ending knitting of large items isn't thrilling me as much as other things I could be doing.

Perhaps today is more of a wondering day than an actual completion of anything day but that I can cope with until tomorrow - perhaps being more organised and having something to actually make tomorrow may get me up and going from minute one.

Visited the midwife today and all is still well - bumps heart is beating like crazy (after a slightly worrying evening yesterday when I couldn't remember it moving all day long but then I was running and crawling and rolling around with my little man and loving it) and it's still in a great position to come out normally - phew.

No snazzy pictures today sorry, bored of taking snow shots now. Hope all out there having a more productive/creative/less brain aching day!

All in days work...

I set myself a little challenge yesterday to find and make something in a day and as I haven't got a hat that I'm particularly fond of wearing I thought this would be the ideal project. From Blacker Designs and knitted using just over one skein of rowan cashsoft DK it was complete by 9pm last night! I'm so chuffed as this cabling is the most complicated I've tried so far and actually surprised me at how simple it was! Now all I have to do is get started on the matching mittens but after the mammoth attachment to needles and yarn yesterday; I'll leave that for a week!
Look at those cables - yippee!

Little Man...

He made snow angels...
He ran in all the fresh snow - which almost covered his boots...
He had a really big tea and was pleased with himself (and almost nodded off into his gogurt - yogurt to you and me obviously)...

Happy Birthday Milky Way...




For a pretty person, we must have pretty things...

After...



Less than 12 hours later overnight and this had fallen, some has thawed today but only enough to become slush, which will be sheet ice by tomorrow if the weather forecast is to be believed.

Just not what I need right now with bump due soon!

Heart happy...

One heart, two hearts...
I've got a thing about crochet right now - especially of the gifting variety as it is soooooo quick and easy to create something fair sized or even quicker for small sized. My brain is exploding with things to do - I think it's in denial about imminent arrival!

Sample of future goodies...



Gosh I am in the mood for lovely things and lovely colours and I can't seem to stop making at the moment, whatever is going on?
Also, may I just say ripple ripple ripple - a lovely word and an even greater delight to see!

Coming soon...

I’ve been to see the consultant today and they told a very shocked me that bump 2 has fully engaged and could (I stress the ‘could’) come any day now. Great news but took me aback quite a lot; as for all my whinging to DH that it needs to put in an appearance soon – I wasn’t expecting to be told that it could well happen.

To top it all off we’re in the middle of a severe weather warning, which for us softy southerners means we can’t get anywhere, amenities fail and we all enter into a mild panic (which I could honestly do without). It does look beautiful out – all clean and bright unlike the usual dinge at this time of year. Ahhh how calming, softly softly falling...
