Knitting and memories

Since I have started knitting now doing the sleeves of my first project has made me think about when I first tried knitting as a little girl .My mum is a big knitter always remember her knitting only evenings back them thou and Sunday mornings was always baking morning which I loved licking the spoon still do or when my sister was there spoon each and fight for the mixture , back to the knitting mum would be watching the tv and click clacking away and I use to watch the speed and loved the noise I would sit with just needles tapping then the same way pretending , I knitted a scarf and booties with a lot of help but mum knitted mountains of items for all her children and grandchildren and now great grandchildren all my Sindy and dolls clothes bless since her accident she has been put on hold and is soon going to Start again she can't wait thou se won't knit dark colours now as her eyes hurt doing it she says here are some of the toys she knitted my daughter they are on the bed at her house we like to keep them there So we can see them as space etc they would be packed away here .

He did have proper Wellies once not sure where they are ?

Goodbye January

I haven't blogged for ages i seem to start all my blogs with that well hopefully soon i will blog more, the last six weeks have been blahh really,first my mum broke her wrist and smashed it up pretty bad and had to have plate and pins put in so spent run up to christmas in hospital and staying with me operations and all that not easy when you use a stick makes life very hard also the accident shouldn't of happened if the car park was not blocked off long story which gets very PC, good news is she is getting better slowly . I have been up and down but hopefully February will be better and will have better news to share , also i haven't knitted for over a month until this Monday just gone still plodding on with the baby cardi which now no longer fits the baby and has now turned into a family joke , but just two arms to go and will be sewing up yay! i do read all your blogs on my phone so cant always comment , message to cuckoo and busy bee i see your meeting up in shepton tomorrow if the wincanton races are not cancelled and i don't have to work i don't want to interrupt your catch up but would be really nice to meet you somewhere for half hour to say hi maybe ? also to say there is a new sewing cafe place opened up in the town two shops down from the natwest bank xx
