FO Friday.

ooops. I haven't done an FO post since AUGUST!!!! what a slacker.

To be honest, my loyalties are now split. I started a new blog over at I'm a complete domestic nightmare and that situation needs to be addressed and I thought that a blog might keep me focussed in my quest. (I don't know why it needed to be a separate blog, but that's the way it is now so....)

Anyway, back to the knitting.

I've managed to get quite a bit of knitting done while I've been on mat leave so the FOs have piled up and I've managed:

a jumper for the little man with matching hat

a hooded jacket for the little man

some fingerless gloves and matching a cowl scarf thing for me

erm..... I think that's it. Oh and I've now done 16 of the 24 stockings I need for the advent calendar. They're knitted up but not sewn together as I HATE the sewing up bit of knitting. I'm avoiding it in the hope that the magic knitting fairies will come and do it for me. Can someone send them my way please?

Quite a lot of knitting when you look at it all together like that.

I'm linking up with Tami over at for the FO Friday linky party. Pop over to see some other finished objects.

So.... I've just finished the 9th stocking I'm making for my baby's advent calendar. Crazy I know but it seems wrong knitting stockings in the summer. Wonder if I'll have 24 by next Christmas.

WIP Wednesday.

I just do NOT have the time I need to blog as much as I'd like, how do the rest of you manage it??
 :( Taking the photos and uploading them to my laptop takes an insane amount of time (am I doing it right? have I missed something??)
And a certain little man is taking up an inordinate amount of   all my time at the moment.

But he goes to bed well so I am getting some knitting done. I have a FO post for Friday but at the moment, this is what I'm working on.

I've made the gorgeous jumper in the blue and am now making the hat to go with it, I just hope it fits his rather huge head!
I'm linking with Tami's WIP Wednesday post. Thanks for popping by

WIP Wednesday

Gosh, where have I been??

Working on the world's best WIP that's where. My little man is 4 and a half months now.

But in the absence of anything else to say, this is what I'm working on at the moment........

It's just a basket stitch blanket. He's teething at the moment so it will probably just end up in his mouth like everything else within reach.

I'm hooking up with Tami again so pop over for some more WIPs.  And I promise I'll be back soon.

FO Friday

Despite the afore mentioned new arrival, I've managed to complete a FO.

People keep asking me what he's called. As a child I lacked that creativity to name soft toys anything other than Mrs Rabbit  or Mrs Badger so if it was up to me, he'd be called Mr hippo.- I think he's a 'he' not a 'she'. What do you think??? I'm pretty fond of him. He comes from this book.....

I've got a few more planned to add to the little man's zoo and maybe then a farmyard too!

I'm linking up with Tamis to share some FO's. Pop over. If you've come from there, thanks for popping by xxx

oh and scroll down for some good news :)

Good news


I've been absent for a while. I posted a few little posts about some of the stuff I've been up to but I left something quite massive out.

The eagle eyed amongst you will have noticed that I was 6 months pregnant at the end of February and that it is now mid August.

So cut a long story short, I had a beautiful baby boy on June 1st.

He weighed 6lb 11 and came by c section as they discovered a week before his due date that he was breech.

And life has sort of been on hold ever since. Or maybe life has just changed. And I LOVE it, more than I could have imagined. I love the smiles he gives us and the giggles we've had for the last few weeks, I love seeing his sight develop so he can really focus now, I love seeing him get excited when his daddy comes home from work, I love seeing how special he is to our extended family, I love buying clothes for him (finally some guilt free clothes shopping!), I love having our living room full of toys and baby gyms, I love being off work. I just love it. All of it and all of him. I am in love with this little fella. He is pretty amazing. And the idea that I made him just blows my tiny sleep deprived mind.

Needless to say, the knitting has taken quite a back seat over the last 12 weeks. I did manage to finish the cross stitch I was working on for my god daughter but don't have any photos yet. I've done a little knitting and am half way through a knitted hippo to go with the knitted elephant I made earlier in the year some time. But that's it. No blankets, nothing. Even the knitted baby bag I was working on ran into a brick wall after I got confused by the right and wrong sides. But who cares? There are so many more important things in life than knitting and blogs.
