What did I do?

A few weeks ago, in a sleepy haze I'm sure, I decided to sign up for a knitting class at my local wool shop. Instead of going for the beginners classes, I thought to myself that I know how to knit basic things eg scarfs so I would go up a level. I signed up to the 'my first cardigan' thinking how wonderful it would be to make something for George to wear.
This has now resulted in me having to re- learn how to knit. I have spent most of my free time this week on you tube watching videos before my class next Saturday and although I am completely petrified I'm really excited. I have also resorted to taking an online course with Craftsy. I learnt how to crochet with them and now love it so let's hope I can manage the same with knitting.
Back to the needles :)

Rainy days

This sums up our day : sleepy baby, sleepy dog and a little big of crochet. The weather is miserable so we are all tucked up on the sofa enjoying a quiet day.
I'm using some stylecraft special DK to make a small blanket which hopefully will be ready to go in George's cot. Lots of different colours and small squares to make it easy to pick up and put down.

2 months on

I can barely believe how quickly the past 2 months have whizzed by.
George is such a lovely baby and now we have worked through some initial difficulties he is so happy and sweet.

He is such a brave boy barely blinking at his first set of injections and is currently taking his first cold in his stride.
He loves bath time and playing with his toys but his favourite thing is to lay on his changing mat babbling away to us.

Every second with him is fun and he has made being a mummy so fantastic.

A little peace and quiet

Today this happened...

So while he slept peacefully in his rocking chair I spent a bit of time working on these...

These little squares are perfect for the short snippets of time during naps.

Have a great weekend
