Well at last I have some photos of two finished items. I have also thrown in a couple of pics of Joe and Darcey, actually you can also see the rougues gallery in the background of a few more family members. I am also going to get some pics of the kids wearing their knits soon. I have been so busy around here that I just haven't had time to get on the computer. I hope the pictures show the cardy and top off ok I am so useless with the camera I just aim and snap.

I am well on my way with the little dress from simply knitting, I haven't knitted with cotton like this before it is sirdar luxury and it is so soft and lovely. I also have two more tops to start that the girls picked out this morning.

I don't really like posting without a photo, but as I don't have one available at the moment I will have to do just that. Had a busy day today, spent it with my eldest out buying baby stuff ready for her new arrival. It was actually a really nice day, just a bit manic.
On the knitting front I have almost finished the cardigan I started for Darcey, I have given up on the cotton one, it won't fit if I leave it and I just can't face 4ply at the minute, just too damn slow!!! I received the cotton I ordered to do the little dress in Simply Knitting, that will definately have to be started soon or she will be too big before I start. We are going to a family barbecue and I was hopeing to have something knitted for each of the younger ones to wear, I have the lilac cardigan for Amber and the tufty top for Jade, although I am not sure if that will be suitable for a september BBQ, I was hopeing to have the dress done for Darcey, the BBQ is on the 30th September so I could, in theory,have enough time to get it done.
Everyone is back at school now, so it is slightly less hectic during the day, so I maybe able to do some serious knitting, the thing is round here it is always dodgy to make plans as things have a nasty habit of changing dramatically at the last minute.LOL.

The first of the tribe went back to school today, it was Jade and it is her first day at Junior school, she is so looking forward to going. She loves school, always has done, she has wanted to go back since the holidays started.
I have finished her top and I am knitting a cardy for Darcey, I have also ordered some wool for a dress in simply knitting mag for Darcey. I also got a set of 4 Addi turbos off ebay at a good price. Life is good!!!
Actually that isn't totally true as I feel a bit down at the moment, this happens from time to time, I really miss my mum, I will be fine though once I get back into routine. Anyway I shall be going now and do some ironing.(Aren't I lucky).
