WIP Wednesday

Yeah I know I promised a FO Friday post, I've just not had the time to do one! I should be able to get one scheduled though providing the sun carries on shining and I find my camera. I've put it in a safe and very logical place. Which basically means I don't know where it is :-S

I've not really got much crafting to show you today. My crochet blanket looks pretty much the same although it's gained another 13 stripes. 3 more to go and then I'm going to measure it up to see if I need to do a 6th repeat or not.

My MKAL shawl is looking beautiful. The silver beads really sparkle against the dark yarn, I can't wait to show it off. I think there is only one clue left to go now which is being released this evening so hopefully I'll be able to get it finished off over the weekend.

As I'm up to date with my shawl I decided last night to cast on a third project. I meant to do it over the Summer holidays but just didn't find the time. It's another Bloom dress for a friend's little girl. Not much to see yet but should knit up fairly quickly. I think the colour is going to look lovely

Unfortunately one of the reasons I've not been able to do much crafting is because I've got a poorly baby. Not sure what's wrong with her other than an upset stomach but she had a temperature yesterday and was looking very sorry for herself. She didn't sleep too well last night but is perkier this morning. I took this sneaky shot of her earlier when I'd gone upstairs to have a bath and came back down to find she'd fallen asleep.

The children go back to school tomorrow and Eli will be having his first morning at pre-school. I'm a little anxious about how he'll manage as he has been struggling with glue ear which means his speech isn't what it should be. The glue ear has more or less cleared up now but he's being seen by the Speech and Language team as he needs a bit of extra support. His speech problems have resulted in him being shyer than my older two children and when he gets upset he's not always able to communicate what the problem is. *sigh* I'm sure he'll be fine, and it is one of those milestones that children go through... Fingers crossed I guess!

    1. thank you :-) She seems much better this morning. Pre-school was a little upsetting, he cried and then I went outside and hid so he couldn't see me crying. Picking him up at midday so not too long before I can give him a cuddle

    1. She seems to be fine now. Eli was excited about pre-school until the moment I had to leave him and then got very upset. The staff there are lovely though so I'm sure he'll be well looked after. Just goes against all my maternal instincts you know? :-(
