I made this......Using wool left over from Ashley hug blanket.
And then have started these - to match
Teenager don't really 'get' the craft thing, Jose does, but I am sure that she thinks I am slightly nuts but Jasper, nope. He DOES think I am nuts. (Although I did receive a back handed compliment from him after being told I was a failure I asked why he doesn't just go and live with his Dad full time, his reply was 'Just because I think you are a failure doesn't mean to say I don't like you - you have to know and understand my son to understand it isn't as bad as it sounds).
He asked me ages ago to knit him another jumper (the last one took about 4 years - thankfully it stretched!!)
He chose the colours (to me they are school uniform colours) One and a half sleeves done and almost finished the back.........There is hope that he'll get it before he is 16!
And then Jose sent me a text. "I want a hug" (she was at home with Jasper at the time so I thought it was a bit odd, but then I remembered the Hug blanket I made for Ashley). So The Cuddle has been started...
With really soft wool, brought just for the blanket........ (£2.99 per 50g - ouch!!) but it is SOOOOOOOOO soft
I got to choose the colours......
So now, I have YET ANOTHER project on the go!!! So much for trying to catch up!!
But I do have nearly two weeks off once they go back to school, and that is going to be constructive, as I WANT to get sorted, rather then thinking that I should!!
And.... hopefully I should find out if Lily is in Pup this week. (I am taking the vet to the airport and instead of getting paid 'taxi' fare he will do an ultra scan on Lily - can't be bad as after all I am using his car and his petrol!! - He didn't think mine would get there!! Bloody cheek!!) ;0)
