Yup It’s been AGES! With sick kids and crazy snow and snow days galore, it’s been a little crazy and I’ve been off the Blog circuit. So hopping back on the horse. Christmas was busy crazy with knitting for family and friends. Yup just family and friends. But still immensely rewarding. Here are some of the things I knit for them.
I made the skull poncho for my Nephew’s daughter and the Poncho for a friends daughter. I wanted to make one more for another friend but ran out of time.
What I didn’t take pictures of Arm warmers, 3 scarves and a Capelet …
But I did this in Grey and a Variegated turquoise blue yarn. And I had started in October! Clearly not early enough and because I was so ahead I thought “OH I have SO much time” and then it was 2 days before Christmas and I was knitting till midnight every night. Sigh. Note to self, start earlier and don’t think you have all the time in the world!
So that is my catch up. Hopefully I will stay on time of it a bit better!
So that title isn’t totally true. The weekend after I had time to knit. But when your in pain you don’t really want to do anything. So I did get some knitting time. But then my hubby went on a 3 day business trip leaving me to hobble after the children. No knitting possible while hobbling.
So how did this happen you wonder. Or at least the X-Ray tech did. Well, my almost 2 yr old was next to me standing on one of the tall kitchen stools and decided to start dancing around. I had my arm around him just incase so when the stool tipped my grip tightened and not paying attention to the stool didn’t notice it falling for my feet. Yup, collective cringe and you know what happened next. My almost 2er heard a lot of words he had never heard before. And then we both cried together.
WHAT an incredible story of how he came to create this awesome foundation that builds school for kids in under privileged parts of the world!
He had a life changing moment, a face death moment and thought what do I want my legacy to be. He started travelling all over the world and everywhere he went he would ask a child what they wanted most. In India this boy said “a pencil”.
