Crochet (Knit) Catch-up

Oh dear, its been so long since I've posted I think I may have forgotten how to do it !!  I'll try to fill you in on what's been happening for the past few weeks in my life. It has been a rather hectic time in that we have eventually secured a lovely room in one of our better nursing homes here for my step-father. As his Enduring Power of Attorney, there's been plenty of things for me to take care of. He is now settled in to a nice big room (with ensuite) with plenty of space for a sofa, easy-chair, TV cabinet and of course telly plus some of his own personal things like paintings on the wall, framed photos etc. to make him feel 'at home'.

I have only been able to manage small crochet/knit projects but better small than not at all I suppose.

Oliver wearing his new hat made by Nanna. The first one was too big and came down over his eyes so he's saving it for when he grows a bit more !!!

I bought 5 balls of Bendigo Woollen Mills new wool to be released mid March. Its called "Bloom" - is 100% PureNew Wool, 8ply and comes in some gorgeous colours. It was a pre-release bargain so I just had to get some to try. I'm currently knitting a Diagonal Scarf from one of their BWM leaflets (PT8291).  I'll take a photo soon to show you how its coming along.

Tomorrow Oliver and his mummy are going for their first dip in the pool to see if he wants to attend baby swim classes. Naturally Nanna will be tagging along and will no doubt be tempted to take the odd photo or two (or three or .....).

Till next time ... take care and I'll see you 'at your place'.
