Phew! What a busy couple of days we have had. It was a lovely, mild, sunny (ish) day today so I decided to have a blitz on the venetian blinds while I had the house to myself. They get so very dusty and are a right pain to clean but they had to be done. I also did a bit more de-cluttering and a black bin bag full of useless 'stuff' has been put into the skip. It couldn't be recycled and wasn't good enough for the CS so it has been binned. I always feel a bit guilty each time I bin a bag of rubbish but the alternative is to keep it which would be silly. The big pile of washing too has bitten the dust...hooray!...but I now have ironing...Boo!...That will have to wait until tomorrow.
I seem to have my knitting mojo back! I used to do a lot when the kids were little then lost the urge when it seemed more expensive to knit my own than to buy ready made. I have been knitting baby things (don't read anything into it though, my poor OH did a double take when he saw what I was knitting..lol..) No, I just like knitting baby clothes. They are finished quickly and the patterns are fairly easy to follow. This is my latest creation to fit a baby up to 6 months old....
A question for you, dear reader. Does anyone know of a charity which can make use of hand knitted baby items? I mean things like the little top above, hats, bootees and such like? If you can point me in the right direction I would be more than happy to make and donate more items.
Does anyone else knit and donate things to charity?
Sorry this is a short post but my quiche is now out of the oven and I need to get into a hot shower to ease my aches and pains :/ See you all tomorrow...x
