Well as March is zooming on by, the weather is slowly becoming warmer and the light intensity is changing. My walks this week with the dogs, have been a guilty pleasure not a chore.
We've just got back from a lovely Sunday afternoon run on the beach and I took loads of lovely photos of the boys and the dogs.....but this one just about sums my family up........
My hubby was saying why is it we can't go to the beach without one of the three boys getting sopping. This is my oldest boy pulling the littlest out of a rock pool which ended up coming up to his waist.....wellies are a waste of time in my boys' world!
Our walk was lovely and I was toasty warm..............guess why..........I've finished, its not a masterpiece but it is done and comfortable.
I have completed my first jumper........it was initially too short despite lengthening the pattern, so I ended up knitting two panels and stitching them to the bottom, it isn't invisible but it makes a unwearable jumper wearable.
If I keep up my walking over the next couple of months, I feel it will probably fit me a little better.....my poor son had a hard job to take photos where I am saying try not to get my double chin in.....try not to get my tummy in...etc...etc.... I was being a very difficult model!
So there you have it, another project ticked off the list......having just completed something knitty I feel I have the bit between my teeth and I'm itching to try something else, which is interesting as I came in to this, to crochet. I don't think I am getting ahead of myself, but I do fancy pushing a little more.
Well.......time for herding children and dogs me thinks......catch up with other Year of Projects work here. I know I will be later on.
Thanks for all the moral support and holding of hands during my first big knitting project, much appreciated.....as in all speeches....'I could not have done this without you!'
I will leave you with another pic of all the sandy ones........
