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.

A Nearly FO

This weekend I will mainly be sewing together the hippo I am knitting. :)
