Keep Calm Craft On

Today feels very strange. Not only have the children gone back to school, my baby is having her first day at pre-school. I'm home by myself :-o Weird!

I'm going to be working on a jumper today, specifically the sleeves. Hopefully some fairly mindless stockinette will work for me. Before I show you photos though I need to apologise for their quality. It is very dark here at the moment and my camera does not like it!

The above photo was taken last night when he came home from work. I was racing to get the bottom cast off before he got home and just managed it. It's rather strange knitting for a man, he needs ease in different places. I could possibly have done a few more decreases after the chest but it looks ok I think

It's a bit darker than this photo suggests, rubbish lighting and flash messing around with the colours again. Most irritating!

Lastly, as it is her first day at pre-school, here's a picture of my little girl, super excited and ready to go. She was a little shy when we got there but I left her happily playing with the toys

I'm joining in with Keep Calm Craft On today. Thanks for dropping by :-) Hopefully I'll be back tomorrow with some progress on the sleeves to show you and also some photos of the other projects I've been working on :-) For now though I'm going to make a cup of tea and try to keep myself busy until it's midday and I can pick up my baby girl

    1. Do you think so? I was worried it was a bit long but not enough to undo it and try again. It's tricky knitting for someone else

    1. It's gorgeous isn't it. It's one of the Cascade Heathers yarns so it's got little flecks in it. Scrummy :)

      She had a lovely day thank you :)
