78 yards of handspun Shetland & Llanwenog fleece with dyed rovings, plyed with Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK to add strength ~ lovingly crafted by my very talented blogging friend Lorna. I will have to find a special pattern worthy of such a gift, thankgoodness for Ravelry. Her two equally talented kiddos sent a picture each for Benedict and Pip aswell as a letter for Benedict from the oldest:
Picassa is playing silly beggars tonight and will not accept my rotating the picture*. The ship is from Tallest and the butterfly is from Smallest, two very cute crafting and gardening gals... they take after their mum! Thanks Lorna x
*DH has since seen the fault and fixed it :-)
These parcels were most welcome since we should've been at this place for a long awaited appointment for Benedict with the paediatric diabetelogist, Dr Fiona Campbell. She is well known in her field and is particularly helpful in troubleshooting unstable diabetes. Sadly it was not meant to be and Benedict was too sick to attend the clinic, in fact it was a case of you know something is wrong when:
he was even too sick to play with the Lego!
My current knitting project is of the small kind:
Good old baby socks, therapeutic knitting of the sweetest kind. I'm still working on the Liesel and hopefully there'll be a finished garment by next week. As for reading I have all sorts of books dotted around the house that I'm dipping into as the mood takes, but by far my biggest focus right now is the start of this next homeschool year! After a lot of thought I've decided to use a Waldorf Grade Three curriculum as our base and will build on from there, hence the front page of the guide in the picture. Thanks to one of the Waldorf Yahoo Groups I was able to access this detailed outline for free.
