Busy, busy and more busy!

It's been one of those weeks.  My last post was a day late due to PC issues - that was Monday.  Tuesday was eldest niece's birthday and I was at my Pilates class, Wednesday I was out for a meal with friends, Thursday was Patchwork Group, Friday I was babysitting and got home after midnight, yesterday was Knit Group (home about 9pm) and today was Mother's Day and lunch for the family at my sister's.  Friday also saw the car in the garage having bits replaced to stop it juddering.

So I have a limited amount of progress to show you (which appears to becoming a regular thing unfortunately - I will have to extract digit big time).

This week I managed to get the backstitching finished on the second carriage - I am still none the wiser as to whether that animal is a zebra or a cow.  I also completed the section of border that I started last week.  I'm still undecided about what to do next - more border or more picture.

I've also made reasonable progress with Hermione's Socks.  Ten of the eighteen pattern repeats on the leg are now done, and I have a hole in my left index finger as a result.  Each repeat takes about half an hour, but I am enjoying watching the fabric of it develop and the yarn feels so nice that I am definitely going to enjoy wearing the finished items.

No movement on the cabled hand-warmers - definitely need to extract digit here.

In other news, eldest niece loved her Panda Hat and put it on straight away.  Now I just have to come up with something for youngest niece who has a mid-Summer birthday.  I wasn't feeling brilliant on Thursday so I didn't go to Slimming World, but I have now tried a couple of the new Slimming World frozen meals that have come out.  They taste fine, perhaps a bit bland, and are good sized portions, which makes a change from most ready meals.

It's been a long week and I am somewhat pooped, so all the best to you and yours, and may the frog stay well clear of your needles.

  1. For a busy week like you had you made some nice progress - I'm voting cow on that animal, the face just doesn't look like zebra at all, and with the lamb and chick, it might just be the farm animal wagon :D
