I won’t go into how long it has been since I blogged. Boring. I have been very busy.
Anyway, there has been much knitting. I have finished a Seamless Hybrid Sweater for the Spunk, and also a Seamless Raglan Sweater for him. I finished the orange cardigan except I haven’t put the buttons on it yet. It hasn’t been cold enough for a cardigan yet. I also finished an Owl jumper, which I love. I am sporadically adding buttons as eyes. Here is a picture.
At the moment I am knitting a black jumper for Number One Son – it is turning out quite nicely! I am going to duplicate stitch a Decepticon logo on the front for him. I haven’t ever done that before, so that will be an adventure.
Next in the queue is a cardigan for Tiny Madam which shouldn’t take too long. Essentially this means that this year, I have made nearly four jumpers, three of them adult size! There have been no socks finished at all. All jumpers, all the time! All knit in one piece.
Since blogging last, we have been back to the coast twice – once with the two youngest children, and once with just the Spunk and I. We recently celebrated ten years of marriage! Where does time go?
We are both working full time this year, for the first time since before the Tiny Madam was born. We are managing quite well, but it is very tiring and VERY busy. Along with that comes some extra money (yay!) so the girls have started hip hop dancing, and the boy has started TaeKwonDo (I want to write RexKwonDo – thanks Napoleon Dynamite) which only serves to make us ever busier! It’s all good fun though!
Purl goes overseas in just over three weeks. She is very excited and so are we – if a little apprehensive.
