What a week!

Oh my gosh, what a week! Oliver was sick Tues,Wed and Thurs night, vomit and diarrhoea.And Emily was sick We'd, Thurs and Fri night.
Weirdly they were both fine during the day, just very cranky from lack of sleep. And up at 6 every morning.

Que Zombie Mammy!

I did get a little bit of knitting done - finishing the Irish leprechaun jumper.

This is going to my cousin over in Australia who just had her first baby. Hopefully she'll like it. 

And hopefully it'll fit!


A little Irish jumper

A work in progress at the moment, but I'm liking how it looks.

Little Bear's Big Jumper

We got this lovely book at the library.bits a really sweet story about two brother bears and their favourite jumper.

At the end their mother knits them matching jumpers so they can each have one. It kinda makes me want to knit matching jumpers for my two.

The only problem with it is that at the end the mother knits their two matching jumpers in one night. That kind of sets quite a high expectation for kids. My two are always very impatient while waiting for me to knit something for them.

It was obviously not written by a knitter!


Sneak Peek

My arm is hurting this evening. Too much knitting I think! 

So while I take a break, and watch the World Cup, I thought I'd share a pic of the newest design I'm working on.


Book and Toy present

One of my cousins has a daughter the same age as Emily and even though they live a good few hours away from us, the girls always get on great when they meet.

For her birthday I got a book of Rapunzel, and decided to knit a little matching doll.

I'm quite pleased with how it turned out! I used my free Lilly pattern as the base.
