Little Birdies

Only a quick one from me tonight.
I’ve managed to get both boys to bed and Mr. B is at work. So I’m curled up on the sofa trying to finish up some attic24 birdies.

They’ve been a WIP for far too long. And I have this idea for how to finish them off so that they’ll make a pretty display. (You’ll have to wait for a big reveal though!)

Here’s how I’m set up for the evening…

Oh and before I forget, a picture of my Frayed Knot perfect cowl. Sorry it’s not beinh modelled I need to wash it so it goes nice and squishy.

It was made using smc select extra soft merino colour (shade 05284) and I added an extra row to the top and bottom as my tension and stitches seem to be smaller than everyone elses. I need to make myself one for the colder days!

Right I’m off to construct some birdies!

Lazy days

Calling to you!!

Sorry to start with a random Robbie Williams lyric but it’s been stuck in my head since I decided lazy days should be the title earlier today!

Mr. B has been off of work for a couple of days. Which naturally means that one of the boys is going to get poorly. Which of course happened!
Little H woke up on Wednesday night and was sick.  So the last 3 days have been spent having lots of cuddles and all of us feeling pretty sleepy.
I had joked earlier in the week that as it’s Mr.  B’s birthday next week that we should plan something for this week. (Because last year it was as we were getting ready to go for a birthday lunch that Little H was sick!) And touch wood he should be ok by the time it actually is Mr. B’s birthday!

Anyway, I digress!
Not much crocheting has been done as you can imagine. Last night I did manage to finish my Frayed Knot perfect cowl. I only had to sew in afew ends and construct & attatch the flower. After that I did a row or two of the little blanket I’m making for a friend who’s collecting them for her local neonatal unit. Then I realised I was really tired and called it a night.

Today when I got up I spent some time playing with the boys and after lunch Mr. B told me he thought I should go upstairs and relax with my crocheting. You don’t have to tell me twice! (I think it was a ploy so he could watch football!)

I did a bit more of the neonatal blanket, and then switched to the pastel coloured granmy stripe for a bit and then went and had a lovely hot bath and started reading Game of Thrones which I’m really liking!

So aside from the poorly toddler we’ve had a chilled couple of days. :)

I shall leave you with a picture.
