She returns with a surprise
What was wrong?
Well, I was pregnant and I have never been so ill in my life. Some people breeze through pregnancy, but not me. The whole experience gave me an appreciation of the emotional toll chronic illness can take - it really wears you down.
But while I did very little last year except drag myself to work and lie in bed feeling dreadful, this is a new year... with a new person in my life.
I did manage to knit a few pieces - this is a Rowan pattern,
... and this is a Jaeger pattern.
Still not doing much knitting yet. The last few months have just been too busy (in fact I'm typing this one handed with a little bundle in the other arm), but I have plans...
The Red Hill Show looms again. I received the program and entry forms today in the mail.
I hope to enter 6 pieces. I have finished one little jumper using Rowan Cotton Glaze (pictures with the next post). The other unfinished items are:
- Debbie Bliss toy sheep knitted using Jo Sharp DK
- Jaeger wrap around cardigan
- Jaeger embroidered jumper
- Rowan baby blanket / shawl
- Knitty baby blanket / shawl
I will photograph them and give some more details in my next post...
The big question is how many can I finish by 21 March when entries are due for submission?
