Well February has been and gone and so has half of March. I had such good intentions but life kind of came along and messed them up.
My Dad had a very serious stroke at the beginning of February. He spent the whole month in the Lister hospital in Stevenage and then on the 4th of March he was moved to a specialist neurological unit for rehabilitation. Sadly he has just today been moved back to the Lister as he is very poorly.
I have been keeping busy but find it hard to really engage my brain for blogging. As you know I had intended to try a new craft each month. January was knitting. I have continued with basic items. I have knitted 2 more pairs of the mitts with thumbs. One pair in the pink again and one pair in black along with a black cowl for Simon. He hasn't actually worn them as the weather has been milder. I have also done lots of garter stitch squares.
As promised in my last blog here are the photos of me in my new kit. You can have a good laugh at the one where I have my eyes closed!
So knitting was fairly successful although I have yet to try anything harder.
I did choose a new craft for February....... Button Craft. Tell you about that tomorrow.
