I had finished my knitting and sewing projects yesterday evening and as I stood today in the kitchen baking a sponge to pop in the freezer for my daughter in laws birthday I kept looking out of the rain splattered windows willing the postman to arrive.
Time is ticking on now and as we nearly enter February my grandson's birth is imminent.
Can I make and finish just one more thing for him ready for his arrival?
Well, as you can see the postman has just delivered my parcel of yarn from Wool Warehouse, Drops Eskimo. This is quite a chunky yarn so hopefully it will knit up quickly. I also treated myself to a new 10mm circular needle and double ended crochet hook.
I do think I should recycle some of my old needles but when I looked in my bag last night, lots of mine were originally my mum's and my friend's mum's and I just can't seem to part with them.
I've also got my mum's old patterns too, garments she used to knit for me and my children.
How can I part with those?
Are you the same?
Now as my house fills with the delicious smells of sponge cake I'm going to have an afternoon in front of the tv with my new yarn, needles and pattern.
