One thing and another ...

So with one thing and another, I haven't been able to blog since the 20th September!
Life caught up with me and there's been alot going on here both good and bad.

The saddest situation with some friends of ours. The husband recently died, we had his funeral last week. It was only 4 years ago same month that his wife died and they leave 3 children.  :(
Over the past 3 weeks, we got alot sorted out for the friend we had staying with us, Dave. Also, he bought a new car while he was here and so Steve and Tom took him home in it. 400 miles is too far for him to drive. They are back home and Dave passed his old car onto Tom, which was amazing of him. It is very old, but he should hopefully get a year or two out of it. It will really help him for getting around for some work now.

It was our 24th Wedding Anniversary, so Steve and I got treated to a meal out with the family, which was really lovely as it's something we rarely do, so that was special!
So much was going on around that time though, that neither of us even had chance to get each other so much as a card, so we just agreed to try and get one for next year now! Well, we've got a year to get it in, so hopefully we'll manage! haha.

I've had little time to do any crochet really, but I did make a start on a face wash cloth last night.  It's a peaches n creme cotton yarn. I already have one in this colour, but changed the stitch pattern myself, just to see what it looks like. I quite like it, but you can't really see it much with it being varigated yarn.  It feels more the 'consistancy' of the knitted one made previously, than the feel of the usual 'stiffer' crochet cloths.  So that surprised me.

I've also started to knit a jumper for Steve.  I would rather be crocheting, but he really wants this, so I will try and get it done for him as he'd be so pleased with it.  Just made a start really, so not alot to show just yet. Grey DK yarn.

I'm totally behind on my blog reading. I hope to catch up with you all over this week, but right now I'm off to take Joe for his piano lesson!
So hope things are good for you all. Take care!



  1. Hello Kim, I really like the pattern you are knitting for your DH,your tension looks brilliant..that is my knitting downfall.
    Wishing you,a late, Happy Anniversary.

  2. Love the Peaches n Cream line. Makes such great dish cloths!

  3. It does sound like life is getting in the way of your crocheting. I do like the stitch on your washcloth. Very pretty with the variegated yarn.

  4. Both pieces are beautiful!
    Looking for see a litle more...

    Happy Anniversary!! :)
    Big hug!
