Getting there

I am now up to clue4 on the Mystery shawl2. I changed the yarn I was using to a 2ply blue merino. It is knitting up a treat on 4mm needles. a picture later. I have just received word that my AKSP has received my parcel only 4 days from when I sent it. This is from Geelong to California USA. I have problems getting my mail within Australia in this time. How do they do it?

On the farm I am almost caught up with the processing! Now I just have to get into the Flylady routines a bit more and continue getting the house in order. I am now much better than I was 3 or 4 months ago. I usually have a clean sink and benches I just have to work more on the floor.

Off I go now to knit a bit then more eggs Today I am determined, sprained ankle and all, to do todays eggs TODAY.

Keep knitting Clare

Sad news

Just writing to say that I am no longer pregnant. The embryo died around 7-8 weeks and I am now going through the expulsion of the remains. Oh well. Better to lose it now than have a damaged child.

Mystery Shawl 2

I have just joined the Mystery Shawl2. Last night I knitted up the first clue. Here it is.

I have chosen some red 2ply merino which I have knitted double on about 3mm needles. I am quite chuffed on how this is going so far.

While watching Bathust today I intend to keep on knitting the 2nd clue. I will post when I have finished it.

I really needed to start another project right now. Like a hole in the head. Still working on the list from the previous post as well.

I am very stalled on the first decrease row of the Mariposa and just don't want to work on the jumper for youngest son but I will make myself. The little cardi is going well if slowly, just 4 rows short of the armholes and do you think I can get motivated to do it? Nup. So I start another project. Hah.

10 weeks along now and I am resigned to this being another boy. Not that I have had a ultrasound yet, but I feel that this will be a lovely little bruiser just like his big brother. Blonde, blue eyed and swarthy skinned. Looks like a surfer. With a very determined mind.

Bye, the race is almost starting.
