Grandson Will's teacher is expecting a baby girl due in September, daughter asked me to make a small blanket and choose this yarn, a lovely simple thing to make, the colours do all the hard work.
I have not done as much as I wanted on this top, I don't have many rows left of this back section, the short cap sleeves are knitted along with the back. I'm loving again the colours in the yarn.
I was gifted this needle set, they are all longer needles, 2 pairs were missing, one size I had in the correct length, I will look out for the smaller size. I am hoping to knit a baby blanket, I normally crochet blankets. I prefer to knit with old needles, they feel so nice, I have not purchased a new set in years.
I have just started this book, looking forward to reading the whole story, this is the sequel to The tattooist of Auschwitz.
Today I'm home for the morning, then I'm off to daughters to look after her youngest 2 for a couple of days, Will is going to his auntie's house for a sleepover on Saturday night, there is always the chance he won't settle and be back with me. It's easier to stay at their house, they all sleep better in their own beds. I have craft, my book and plenty to do, both little ones are in bed by 6.30pm, so a lazy evening tonight and tomorrow, they both still nap in the afternoons as well.
My painkillers have arrived and I have had one good night sleep, I won't take any whilst with the children, but I can catch up on sleep next week. I am feeling much better, just catching up on some sleep is helping.
