I have been doing some more baby knitting, we have done lots and lots of pictures and made swirly snakes to hang up (when we get round to it).
I have started a cardigan from Jenny's book in really soft lemon yarn. The girls have both shown an interest in learning to knit so today I thought I would try and teach them. Francesca found it really hard and has given up. I'm not sure if it was hard to show her as she is left handed or just because she is only four. I have ordered a knitting dolly (Nancy) for her online so by the end of the week she'll be knitting strings for me to make into coasters and badges and bracelets and stuff. She is not overly disappointed.
Elizabeth on the other hand took to it like a duck to water (as they say) and has knitted a book mark! It is a little loopy in places but for a first attempt is marvellous! Well done Lizzie-Loo!
I think it may be while before she's making these though;
I vow to get dressed tomorrow and have also said that we will be walking to and from school/nursery everyday this week (unless the rain is so bad we are in danger of drowning). I am in need of losing some more of my baby weight (Nathaniel is a year old after all) and am saving the petrol that is left in our car for a trip to IKEA on Friday for our tea! Am so excited, the thought will keep me going all week!! Haven't been since it was my birthday.
