Happy Christmas Sock

So, back in november i had a baby. and with christmas coming up i was very excited when i found i could knit whilst holding the sleepy bundle of joy. So I decided to make a pair of socks for lovely Richard. I had a month and i didn't have to go to work any more, so i thought that was a reasonable task. Easy right!

... but at this time i was not experienced in living with the baby so my expectations of achievable goals were not very accurate at all!

Unfortunately, as that little one started to wake up and grow and move about, knitting whilst holding the baby became a bit of an accident waiting to happen and so by christmas i had only managed to knit 1 sock (mostly while Rich pushed her in the pram in the treacherous wind and rain) I did wrap it up for him to open on christmas morning. He was confused.

But look... now that spring is here, the socks are finished!

I am so pleased about it. What a triumph! And Rich learnt the lesson of good things come to those who wait.

His quote is "they are very comfortable"

Little Rose Riding Hood

Very much time has passed since i knitted this little snug cardigan, and since then i haven't really made many things (there were a lot more maternity dresses, but they were all very similar in the end!) but I did make this little thing to fill that cardigan...

Her name is Rose and she is the reason I take a long time to do everything now! But she is the best.
