I'm sorry to have neglected you, but I have been in hospital with pneumonia. Pneumonia! Can you believe it? Oh, no it was not nice at all, but I am on the mend and hope to be back to normal programming very shortly. Too many ideas & semi-lucid thoughts have been misplaced already.
The week started out spectacularly, warm, sunshiney, & inspiring. Otis and I strolled around the lake and felt as though the whole world was smiling just for us...
Then Otis celebrated his four month birthday. He had a special boob cake to celebrate...
And by Wednesday the whole household had the dreaded lurgy and I was left taking photos of shadows on the wall. I eagerly await the departure of snotty noses, coughs, tummy aches and cranky children and the imminent arrival of sunshiney goodness.
I've started on the first item for the house trousseau. A chunky knit throw for the end of our new bed in our new bedroom in our newly built house :) Hooray!
I'm using the biggest needles I could find, 20mm, 100cm Addi circular needles and the chunkiest yummiest wool I could find which is this beautiful 100% merino Rowan Drift. Here's a tip, after much searching I found an excellent bargain at Deramores in the U.K, which by the way, has $5- international postage ;)
Considering I took a gamble on the wool (not seeing it in person) and took a guess at the needles it's turning out really well so far. Its so lush and soft and textural and the colour is just divine. Happy times!
Happy Friday to you! I've been out enjoying the sunshine, so not much crafting or house planning happening here. But I am loving the Instagram so much, I thought I might make a regular friday thing of it. A nice round-up of the week that was ya know? A little visual journaling. Fancy joining in?
That last one's creepy I know, but I had to include it! It's Otis' placenta being planted on the block with a beautiful cherry tree :) Hope you had a fabulous week.
