How Chocolate and Knitted Pants!
It came - the sun shone, the sky was indeed blue and my spirits have lifted because of it. Beautiful, healing January sunshine has been here for the last two days and what a difference it has made. The littlies and I came home from the school run in cheery mood and decided mugs of hot chocolate were called for.
Of course the whole thing turned into a giggle fest once I produced the camera.
I don't think Isabella could physically fit anymore of her face into that mug, though by golly she tried!
Apparently I have an Elvis quiff going on, so Lucy informed me. Hmm, I can sort of see what she means, though I would like to point out this is due to the oils I have been unable to wash out from a Christmas pressie massage I was lucky enough to be given and which I had yesterday afternoon. Seriously, how many hair washes does it take before I stop looking like a grease ball! Oh but it was blissful, surrounded by warm towels, lying on a heated bed and drifting away as my poor muscles were dragged out of their mangled state, a hazard of leaning endlessly over the cutting table and being chained sewing machine.
I am planning a little knitting this evening as a change from sewing, but how I wish a new project was waiting in my basket, not this darned thing.
Ah well, I am pleased to report that progress has slowly happened on the Davey hooded jumper front with the hood being made as part of the back construction thus...
Oh, now I have looked again at the photo I realise it looks as though I am part way through knitting a pair of pants for the poor chap. I would like to point out that this would not work on so many levels and is truly not something I could see myself being able to wholeheartedly endorse. Of course, should you wish to have a go then far be it for me to stand in the path of creativity (and please do forward pics of the finished garment, preferably not being modelled.)
Ok, so a larger picture hasn't helped and you will just have to imagine the hood construction until such time as I actually complete it. The whole thing now looks like it has an additional willy warmer and has lowered the tone of my erstwhile tasteful (!) blog, so I shall swiftly move on and leave this topic I so wish I hadn't started. Lucy has discovered there is no more hot chocolate in her mug and therefore teatime must be calling.
Have you had sun today? x
