A mixed weekend
These are the little booties I have made as a Christmas present for my latest granddaughter. It's a very simple pattern but has taken ages due to my cold stopping play for ages, but I am quite pleased with the results.
This is a scarf I've made for a Christmas present for a friend. The pattern is very easy and I'll be making several more, I think.
Well, this weekend was a little better than the last one, mainly because my cold is finally on its way out, although I had a rotten night's sleep last night because I kept waking up either coughing or sneezing. In the end, I gave in and got up for a cuppa. An afternoon nap will definitely be on the agenda today!
I hope those of you in the UK didn't suffer any damage from the storms - I watched all the weather forecasts and the news items, and it looked pretty wet and windy. We had a milder version of it here but our forecast gets better as the week progresses - apparently! I didn't stray far this weekend because I still feel a bit worn out from the cold, but I hope to get out and about this week. I feel an urge for some real fresh air and a stroll so I may visit one of our local parks with my camera. I love the fact that we can post photos on here - isn't technology wonderful?!
I live in France with my husband who works in construction and renovation. I work from home as an internet researcher and freelance writer. I have two grown up sons; they each have lovely wives and between them have provided me with four gorgeous grandchildren, a boy aged 11, and three girls, one aged 8, one who will be two in August, and her new sister who is just three weeks old.
I am part of an online knitting group which makes items for all sorts of charities, from preemie babies to animal rescue centres. Details of our group - and all the relevant info for anyone who wants to join us - is in this blog.
