hehe! it's still raining here...
but we're down to a few stormy showers a day
instead of a constant deluge.
i am going to be a grandma soon,
around the end of may...
all being well.
it's a boy!
it's been a good excuse for a browse in the baby section
at the department store
and i've been gathering a few tiny things in assorted sizes...
all very small.
i've also been knitting a 'purl bee' blanket...
i'm now just over half way through...
this is the easiest blanket i've ever seen...
120 stitches, garter stitch, one ball of yarn per stripe...8 ply, 4.00mm needles.
i've used acrylic 'cos when i had my first baby
i had knitted things in pure wool
quite a few bootees and jackets were rendered useless
as i shrunk them in the washing machine or dryer.
this blanket will happily be washed and dried without fear of shrinkage!
i have stalled on my scarf.
it's those pesky ends.
i really don't feel like sewing them in...
but i'm sure when the cold weather hits in a month or so
i will summon the required energy to do the job.
so much for stripes.
this week has been full of challenges...
cars breaking down
it's all turning out ok.
what's your week been like so far?
