Right the time has come for a bit of an update, I have been doing some knitting!! and also some photos have been taken.
I have finished a jumper with a roll neck in Tufty for Jade, I wasn't too sure about it as I was knitting it but I think it actually turned out quite well. I also have 4 projects on the go, the pictures as ever will be in any There are pics of the patterns I am knitting,I am doing the little cardigan with the roll around the bottom in Jaeger Baby Merino double knit, also for Darcey I am doing a little cardigan in 4ply cotton, for that I am using elle splish splash, 100% cotton, for Jade and Amber I am knitting the little boleros from the Sirdar soft cotton book, but I am using Debbie Bliss cotton Cashmere for one and RYC luxury cotton double knit for the other, both of which are lovely to use.
There is also a picture of the 3 little uns as they won't let me take a picture without having one of all of them.

I don't like to post too many of these but I have to say I found this one to be extremely acurate.I really have considered all those jobs at sometime in my life. This is so

You Are An INFP

The Idealist

You are creative with a great imagination, living in your own inner world.

Open minded and accepting, you strive for harmony in your important relationships.

It takes a long time for people to get to know you. You are hesitant to let people get close.

But once you care for someone, you do everything you can to help them grow and develop.

You would make an excellent writer, psychologist, or artist.

Just a quick update really, nothing much has happened , I have been sooo ill, I thought my cold and cough had cleared up but they actually have got worse, I feel like I am under a fog all the time, fortunately hubby has this week off so he has helped out a lot. I know I am feeling really rough as I haven't even wanted to knit!!!!

With those words being said I obviously haven't done much knitting, I have started a hooded jacket for Darcey with Jaeger baby wool, which is coming along OK. I am still going through a stage where I can't seem to decide what to knit next. When I first used to knit a lot in my twenties I did fair isle, lace patterns the lot, but now I feel too nervous to attempt anything out of my comfort zone, maybe it's my

Easter is almost upon us, I can't believe how fast this year is going.
Just before the holidays broke up I found out that the Headteacher at the junior school my children use, and one which I am also a Parent Governor at, is leaving this has caused me to think deeply about whether I still want my children to attend this school, I have decided that a smaller Church School would be far better, especially with Amber and her diabetes. The school Amber is at now, is great but unfortunately is an Infant school only, so I am now having to look around at other schools, I have found one just outside my hometown, so I will take a look at it after the Easter holidays, I have already spoke to the head there and there MAY be spaces for my girls. This feels like a real big decision and I just wanted to write it all down. I hope I just make the right decision.

I just remembered on a knitting note that I recently bought some hand painted yarn from Krafty Koala ,, please take a look as she has some lovely yarn there at a very good price.

Well I think that's about it, I hope everyone has a good Easter.
