Finally, an update

I guess I have been missing in action for a while. It's not been intentional but a combination of things have occured to merit me devoting less time to my stitching. My back has been bad, major stomach problems and arranging a surprise 40th Birthday party for Him Indoors which was last saturday but his birthday was Tuesday the 23rd. That was stressful and it was like a covert Military operation but a good time was had by all.


On the stitching front, not much accomplished but I hope to rectify that now. He is looking pretty good now.


I have also managed to knit some mittens for one my granddaughter's to be who will be named Sofia Andrula.


Last but not least, I have done two more squares for my throw.



I am also crocheting a blanket for Sofia for when she is at my home :)
I have knitted an aran cardigan for one of the babies but I am having trouble putting the blasted thing together. It was knitted in a weird way ie from cuff to cuff then right and left front, then body and then button band. I am an experienced knitter but the putting together is driving me nuts and it will probably end up going for a flying lesson across the room lol.


  1. Lovely to see you post Kelly :-) Sounds like you have been busy.
    I am sure you will get the cardigan put together. Nice progress on your WIP too.
