Far Too Long

Well, that was a bit of an unintended break. After my last post, I had the kids to deal with on my own for a couple of months. The experience left me breathless with respect for those that do the single-parent thing full-time. There also wasn't much knitting time, or eating time, or sleeping time, or anything-time.

Thankfully, we now have R back with us. And he has a job, which is a bit of a relief in these frankly scary financial times.

It now, finally, feels like things are back on an even keel (or as even as they can be). I've actually done a fair bit of knitting in the past couple of weeks. Nice simple things like mittens and hats, with the odd jumper (mindless raglan in the round) thrown in for good measure.

Now that the days are definitely beginning to stretch out a bit, and the first daffodils are making their appearance, everything seems a little less like a hard slog. Between yesterday and today I've nearly finished a little toddler-sized sweater in the last of my precious, tiny stash of Lamb's Pride. Hopefully there will be photos of the finished article tomorrow.

Glad you're back, and very glad R has got a job; that's excellent. I have been thinking about getting in touch, but I suffer from Fear of Nagging so I haven't. Invitation to meet still stands :)
