First finished knit!

I have been trying to learn to knit...
And with a bit of help from my Aunt I have an actual item of clothing!


What it was supposed to look like

Beautiful wool that I bought on sale - it's not to everyone's taste but is perfect for my daughter!

Finished cardigan!

"its nice and cosy mummy!"

I am actually quite proud of myself, it's far from perfect but it was my first go and it is wearable.  It could do with a little bit more length but the most important thing is that my daughter loves it and thinks that I'm a magic mummy for turning the wool into a cardigan - what more can you ask for???

Well Thank God that's over!Won't find out results until August, so there's not really anything else I can do on that front at the moment.
Which means that I can put my precious free time on crafting!Wahoo! I nearly have a cardigan for my daughter done - first item of clothing I have knitted, in some beautiful wool, pictures and everything will be up once it is all completed.  Then I am going to make some curtains for my son's room, pre-shrink some fabric for a skirt and possibly even  get some cross stitch done - well that is the plan anyway ...

Tomorrow I will complete DSE212 along with hundreds of other stressed out psychology students by sitting a three hour exam!
I have been grouchy and stressed and my husband deserves a medal for putting up with me , giving me simple things like a lie in, cooking for me and generally being supportive (even if it does fall on deaf ears) today I will be completing my 'mind maps' and tomorrow hopefully I will surprise myself by actually knowing some of it!So I would like to say good luck to anyone else out there freaking out about the exam but it will soon be over with!

Dog Days

I introduce you to Harley, the newest member of our family:

We picked him up last night and he is THE cutest puppy ever.   He has had immense fun running round this morning with my pesky kids and I think he might have managed to sniff every last inch of the downstairs.  He seems quite settled though and we adore him already!
