But not card or scrapping, sorry :(
As you know I became a nannie last year and thought it was about time I dug out my knitting needles and knit a couple of cardi's. As we didn't know what 'pudding' would be, (named as it was due at Christmas), I knitted a blue and pick one, so that 'pudding' would have something in the right colour to come home in, (I also brought a pink and blue pack of hats ready as knew it would be cold in December).
I actually started soon after I found out my daughter was pregnant in the April and finished them at the beginning of November, in fact, I was lucky as I only just finished them before William was born. I had a few friends taking the mickey out of me, well, I didn't say I was a fast knitter, in fact I spent more time unpicking, than actual knitting, lol.
OK with William being 5 weeks early and having to stay in hospital for 5 days (luckily in a private room with my daughter) we had time to buy blue items, but Sam and Matt surprised me by bringing him home in the one I made :) and one of the hats I brought.
Then at Christmas I thought I would start another cardi, this time in a bigger size, as not knowing how long it would take me, but surprise, surprise, I actually got in done and dusted in a few weeks lol.
And here is the 'porker' in it (weighed in at 10lb 8oz the other week), OK it's a little too big, but the way he is going, he will be into it very soon, lol.
