Well well well it’s Tuesday and I’ve made it to the computer! Yet another busy week in my house. Unfortunately our car radiator decided to leak on Friday which meant an untimely meeting with the AA who thankfully got us back on the road, but now, oh dear, car in the garage for a few days, leaving us relying on friends for the school run and plenty of walking! We had a lovely get together with friends on Saturday, and then some catching up with homework and laundry on Sunday. Then Monday, back to it.
No car means less going out, especially as we are busy with the fireplace too. I spent yesterday decluttering in the bedroom and now have a dust-free tidy room – fabulous. I’m looking forward to the fireplace being finished so I can work some similar magic in the sitting room. Just now it looks like this…
On the One a Day front I have managed some rows on the ripple and am now on to colour change 37. I know I am slacking in the ripple department but I’m still determined to finish for Christmas. I can’t wait to see the look on my daughter’s face when she discovers it’s actually for her. The other day she said how lovely it is, and how nice to see it spreading over my knees as it grows, and how handy that is now it’s getting colder! She doesn’t read my blog so she must read my mind! Or maybe we are just so similar. She loves crafting too, can knit and crochet, and goes to a textiles group after school. Last year she made a dress – she was only 11 – and they had an end of term fashion show with all the year 11 girls in their prom dresses. My, what an occasion. This year she is making a mini collection of 4 items – I’ll try and post some pics when it’s ready!
I’ve also cast on a scarf for my Grandma for Christmas, just yesterday. I found the pattern in a book called Knit Green and it’s here on Ravelry. I may make a couple, one for my Gran too, then find some lovely scarf pins to complete the gifts. I’m also making headway with the 2 at a time socks – great fun!
So off now to check out the other one-a-dayers over on Gingerbread Girl’s blog.
Happy Tuesday xx
