Aside Posted on Updated on
As if I needed to add to the looooonnnng list of WIPs! Ha Ha! …..
So I have a new project on the go. This time it’s because a new baby is imminent in the New Year – not mine – the offspring of my husband’s work colleague. They have been assured it will be a little girl so I am knitting in pink. I don’t usually do such boy/girl real colours just in case the medics get it wrong but I just couldn’t resist this deep pink and I love knitting with Rico baby yarn. I shall chart my progress here. (I shall keep my fingers crossed they do have a girl. I spoke to a customer who made a ‘girl’ cardigan for her ‘grand-daughter’ this past spring. ‘She’ turned out to be a ‘he’!)
As for what else I have been doing for the rest of the week – well, up to my neck being busy doing lots of things. I popped into work for a couple of days. Nothing much out of the ordinary there. We are usually a little busier this time of year but I am sure with the predicted colder weather we shall have some customers coming in to panic buy yarn to knit up quickly. I plan to knit a lot this weekend, in between shopping for new bathroom fittings and visiting the out-laws!
I have been day-dreaming a lot this week. I think it’s got a lot to do with last weekend’s trip away with an old friend. We talked about what our hopes and dreams had been when we were in our late teens/early twenties. I realized I had not fulfilled many of them. I am hoping there is still time to do a lot of them. Life sure does whizz by at an incredible rate these days. My Nan always used to say life goes quicker the older you get!
