Rose Tinted Cardigan

Here it is finally finished… modelled by my stunt double.

Pattern is not my own but one from Vogue Knitting and is in an aran weight.  It’s definately more feminine than I would normally knit but I love it.  B attempted to take photos of me in it but obviously they were quality and it looks much better on the mannequin.

The bear’s paws on the end of the sleeves don’t look quite like that when in it’s on but not suprisingly B’s mum has stated that I seem to have made the sleeves to long, and they may be but as far as Mary’s concerned ‘It’s the pattern’.

To Do List 10 – Times on List in Brackets

 New

* Sort out garden, this should possibly be make a garden from the scrub land it is now…

 

I always wanted acres and had a vision of gardening in flowery dress and floppy sun hat (not that I tend to wear that kind of thing at the best of times) but so far our garden has leant more towards steel toed boots, sledgehammers and thermal vests.

We have photos…

but not of my hair yet. B did take some but I don’t know who of it certainly wasn’t me. Whoever he took had short purple hair and looked FAT.

 

 

 

We went to the eye clinic today just for a check up because when I had shingles last year they were near by left eye (everything is fine). I wanted to get the nosebands in the post and because we’ve had Tommy Ticklemouse again since Friday I didn’t have time to get them parcelled up before going I took them with me. So I sat in one waiting room folding them up and then sat in another stuffing all 23 of them into an C4 size envelope with Bernard saying constantly ‘There’s no way they are going to fit. You should have used two’. I could feel people watching curiously and the pressure was on but I managed to get them all in then had a bit of time getting them in the post box at the hospital.

As a little aside is there anybody other than my husband that considers that this is the appropriate storage location for toilet roll?
