A very little post

Posted on

I think the title of a blog post is the thing that catches someone’s eye. It’s a bit like the cover of a book – if it looks interesting you might pick it up. So now I’m wondering if you are reading something from me for the first time what you thought this might be about. Enlighten me if you wish!

A letter in the post? A friend this morning stated that since Covid lockdown she thinks she is receiving less post and rarely sees her postman. Unlike a different friend who is receiving a lot more as her internet purchases increase and she almost feels sorry for her postman when he arrives some days staggering behind the latest stack of packages.

Maybe you thought this might be about an interesting looking post coming out of the ground somewhere. I myself love a bit of metalwork designed to be pretty not just functional, usually gates or fencing though. Sorry not this kind of post.

Then there could be a ‘post’ about the after of covid, what might be different, what might be the same. There’s food for thought and something I am sure many of us have thought about.

My very little post is only this – my latest tiny finished knit. We have a new baby boy due in the family next month. Just in case he arrives early I made a preemie waistcoat so he’ll have something nice to wear. It will only fit a preemie or a teddy! It was fun to make. I had already made a larger size hoodie but I just wanted something smaller just in case. Still using my stash so feeling a little smug and who doesn’t love a quick result?! Still working on other things, knitted, crocheted and sewn.

      Thank you knotfancyknitter. I am hoping the new Mum and Dad like a bit of traditional knitting – and though I don’t want the baby to arrive early it would be nice to see the waistcoat being worn once at least. I did make a mini shrug for another family baby a couple of years ago – we were warned she might arrive 8 weeks early – but then she went full term and it was way too teeny! I just like to be organised. My own son was in little clothes for ages, 0-3 months swamped him.

    Oh, that sweater is precious. I have been getting more deliveries, but less mail if that makes sense.

      I have been thinking about exactly where my money goes – sometimes a little ‘random’ purchase online has been fun (so more deliveries) – but it’s harder to sneak into the house as my husband currently works from home!

        I still have the upper hand on home deliveries. Once I return to working in a physical building, all bets are off!

    The little vest is adorable, the one thing that might help your blog is to make sure that your main category is selected as either a Knitting or whatever craft you want. Currently you have it as uncategorized and it does not search well so people cannot find you. Just a helpful suggestion

      Thank you for the tip Olivia. Much appreciated.
