Yarn Along

Joining in with Ginny and co for this week's yarn alongI am knitting some sleeves for a shrug style cardigan to contrast with my dress for the wedding.

  I finally managed to find a dress to only realise that the original waterfall style cardigan would not work because of the change in colours!  I also knew that I would not have time to knit a cardi from scratch so my dear friend Debs, knit the fronts and back, which meant I only had to tackle the sleeves.  Good job too as since the middle of last week I have been poorly with a virus.

The Borrowers is our read aloud and narration book for the first part of this new school term.  We are slowly easing back in to a new school year and  are taking things easy by introducing new topics in a gentle manner.  I would rather we started slow and steady than going crazy and losing momentum half way through!

Benedict did a great job with his narration and worked incredibly hard with his copywork which is not easy for someone with dyspraxia and dyslexia :-)


  1. I am sorry to hear that you have had a virus, hope it is gone for the big day :) (and you get your knitting done in time!)

  2. Good luck with those last preparations. We are preparing for company that will arrive when you have the wedding, I have no idea how to get order into this house by then. So we are both in the same boat so to speak. But I do not have to knit in between! We also have "The Borrowers" up on our bookshelf, but we have never read it. Maybe I should pull it out again. I once tried, many, many years ago, but it was too hard back then for my children.

  3. I hope you're feeling better now San? We're reading the very same book here too :) Looking forward to seeing some beautiful pictures featuring your cardie on the big day xx
