My photo

I knit, I sew, I run, I look after children and hamsters, I take truly terrible pictures, I cook, I complain.  Sometimes all at the same time.

Cognitive recalibration. I hit you really hard on the head.

    *SUNDAY NIGHT KNITTING KLAXON AGAIN*
    I am ill.  Not really ill, but ill enough.  I cough and cough and cough, and it's awful during the day and worse at night.  Last night I took 2 night nurse, and slept for 12 hours straight.  The only downside was that I then felt shocking until about 2pm today, when they wore off.  Still, they calmed the cough and let me sleep, so they've probably done some good.

    The illness has meant I haven't really touched or looked at the blog for a week, so thank you for commenting, I read all the comments, but just haven't got around to replying.  Sorry.

    I spent all day yesterday crocheting or snoozing sitting up; I'm happy to report progress on a whole load of projects.  Mostly because I looked at the list, looked at the WIP pile and had a good old think about my behaviour.

    For the Girls

    Burton Bear cowl for Hattie.  Brown wool ordered.
    An Owlet for Hattie - yarn located
    Ringo and Elwood mittens in grey and brown - well, I've bought the yarn

    For me:

    Boreal - making the first sleeve.  I need this done by December 12th.  It will be.  There is no way I am BUYING a Christmas jumper.
    Wisteria jumper - located.  It JUST needs sleeves.
    Peacock Mitten - on hold
    Coraline cardigan - moved to be finished by February; this is Britain, it will still be cold then
    Petrie top - I have some rather fine Peacock coloured yarn to make this with, but it is a spring weight top, so it is on hold until January 2015.
    Knitted Coco - got the yarn, printed out a pattern, just got to start.  Also, see above.
    Socks for me - meh
    Rainbow jumper - no progress
    A Little Birds jumper with no steeks - still planning

    For Simon:
    Reknit an unwearably large jumper - not proving as popular an idea as I thought it would be.

    Other - I've done things here!

    The Weather in the Streets - January to May done AND SEWN TOGETHER.  June so, so close to being finished, July STARTED.
    Owl Obsession for one of my godsons - it's for his second birthday.  In September.  2015.  Tonnes of time.
    Hexipuff Quilt (I'm aiming to get 250/500 done by the end of June 2015) I had a look at this, and found my bag of scraps, and I might just get on and do one.
    Finish the bloody Elephants blanket - Officially taking off the list.  I don't like it, it's a pain to make, and while I'm not going to bin the blooming thing, I'll put it completely on the back burner, and not worry about it anymore.
    Lucy Attic24 Ripple Blanket - I've now completed 19 rows (all the colours) and just have to do it all again 2 more times and put a border on it, then it will be done.
    Nicholas' POP blanket - 9 squares are still done.
    A small jumper for Nicholas - need to get a move on with this - Christmas knitting.

    Done:
    Myrna Cardigan
    Hattie's cardigan.
    A pair of simple socks for the children
    Garter Yoke Cardigan
    An Owlet for Lucy
    Lucy's Cowl
    Hattie's Cowl
    A Burton Bear Cowl for Lucy
    Simon's socks

    So there is some progress, especially with the 2014 blanket.  I've just got 8 squares to go for June, and then I'll be half way through, which I'm pleased about.  It's still pretty busy though.

    2. Really hope your better soon, it's no fun being ill and the desire to do anything at all goes right out the window.

    4. Sorry to hear you've been feeling so poorly - hope it'll get better soon. That 12 hours of sleep is bound to have a good effect. x
