Proof that I did knit (and quilt) while Gorgeous Man was away. This is a Debbie Bliss pattern, with two strands of local yarn held together. It’s pretty cute and I’ll probably end up making one for me. This is destined for a friend who is due any day now (we’ve been saying that for the last 2 weeks). I’m waiting to see if the child is a boy or a girl before sewing on buttons.
I’m currently knitting a baby v-necked jumper for my baby.
This is the back, and this is a close-up of the yarn. This is local yarn.
Fat Boy continues to use his blanket –
I’ve since shifted it onto the couch and he is very happy. He’s not going to be happy next week when he goes back to the vet to check the progress with the leg. He is a little phobic about the car…
We had another appointment with the Ob/Gyn yesterday and another scan – picture will be uploaded when it’s been digitalised. I was pleased to discover that I can hire a TENS machine for labour, and a new maternity shop has opened this week in our area. We drove straight there and came home with some clothes – pictures to follow.
Tomorrow is Freedom Day – celebrating the first multi-racial elections in South Africa in 1994 that brought an end to apartheid and elected Nelson Mandela to power. We are going to take advantage of the long weekend and visit Ado Elephant park (about 4 – 5 hours away) and spend the weekend there. Hopefully we’ll have good weather and there’ll be lots of pictures when I return.
I’ve narrowed my scarf – using the beautiful silk Gorgeous Man brought down to three possible patterns:
I’d be interested to know what you think…
