Family Knitting Motherhood

An Olympian of sorts


The problem with Ravellenic knitting with really, really nice yarn is the internal conflict between knitting to a deadline, and wanting to knit with the really lovely lovely yarn for as long as possible.   In a sense, I think I shot myself in the foot with that one.  But I’m still counting myself as a Ravellenic Victor, even if not entirely victorious in all of my events.  Well, let’s take a look …

First up, a Baby Surprise Jacket – finished!

My actual genuine went-to-the-olympics knitting, as modelled by a friendly bear.

And the second ….

Well it’s finished now, but that doesn’t quite count.  It’s a Baby Mine in the gorgeous Cephalopod Yarns Traveller, and I finished it on Tuesday.  I was nearly nearly there, and if the Closing Ceremonies had lasted as long as the Opening Ceremony (and I hadn’t fallen asleep) I might just have made it.

But as I said, I have a really really good excuse:

    YaY, you’ve made another one. (M1) or should I say increased by one. (inc1) although time will tell if it is slanted to the left or to the right. (although I am not sure which side is boy and which side is girl). Congratulations to you both, may the days seem bright and the nights cool (better for sleeping when pregnant) and if we are going for copy cats, please, please, please, make it a Christmas baby or nearly a Christmas baby, I think 21 is a number that may be remembered deep in your soul. Wanders off giggling. Seriously though, love to you three. x
