Spring forward, Fall back

Yes, the clocks went back last night so I got an extra hour in bed this morning - whoopee!  However, it does mean that winter is really on its way - time to get out the hot water bottles, electric blankets and heavier duvets.

Just a couple of pictures to show this week.  I got another three blocks done on Carnation so am slightly ahead of myself for the moment.  If I can do the same again in the coming week, I will be nearly at the end of another row.

On the knitting front, I have made good progress on my second sock.  I have finished the leg and the heel flap and turned the heel.

I also attended my first knitting group yesterday.  It was nice to spend time with like minded people and I have every intention of going again.

In other news, I finally managed to get hold of the endocrinology nurse at the hospital.  My blood test came back clear and I have now stopped taking the tablets!!  I have to have another couple of blood tests just as check-ups, but other than that I'm done!  I also went to Slimming World and discovered that I'd put on 1lb over the last fortnight, so am now 11 stone 9lb - 2lb to lose to get back to target.

The extra hour in bed this morning came in handy because I was babysitting late last night.  I still feel a bit tired so will finish here and wish you and yours a very good week, and may the frog stay away from your needles.


  1. Great progress on your stitching! I love your socks the colours are gorgeous.

  2. Congratulations on the good blood test! Your needles are really smoking on carnation! We don't turn the clocks for another week, so it's still pitch black when I wake up - it will be nice to see the sun in the morning!

  3. Congrats on the clear result on your blood test! Also, you're making great progress, it's fun to watch Carnation grow especially with that lantern showing up. And your sock will be ready soon, so you will have something nice and warm to wear this upcoming winter ^_^
