Who ate all my time! I can’t believe it’s over a month since I last posted.
Life here is super busy. Isn’t everyone’s?
After many years of battling we finally have some support in place for the children, so have social workers, family support workers, and conferences and workshops coming out of our ears! Funnily enough it’s also led to a friend (also an adoptive mum of a chap with additional needs) and I to realise that there is a huge hole in the market for a one-stop-website for parents and guardians like us.
Over coffee one day, lamenting the lack of such a resource, and wondering why somebody didn’t do it….we realised that we were just the people to fill that gap. Now we are working hard for an Autumn launch. Its exhilarating and exhausting in equal parts, and the steepest of learning curves, but we’re only a month in and getting great feedback, so watch this space.
With all this going on, you can imagine that crafting time is limited….I haven’t looked at a tapestry sheep in weeks, and my sewing plans are gathering dust. I’m slowly working on a waistcoat for Dave, but I’m awfully glad he’s patient!
Thankfully, I have been knitting. Most recently finished are these beauties.
Look at those colours!
Look at those perfectly matched stripes!
Sock perfection! And a happy husband. I’ll take that win!
Of course I have another pair of socks on the needles, for conversational knitting occasions. But I also have Galaxie from Quince & Co. for evenings in front of the TV.
I’m knitting it in Finch in the colourway Stream.
Both the pattern and the yarn are sublime. I’m happily doing a few rounds a night and enjoying the making. I’m usually a product driven knitter, so this is a lovely change for me. And it’s nice to be knitting a garment other than socks!
It’ll be ready for Autumn too.
