So here it is in its full glory, the piece of knitting I have been concentrating on, well almost it still has to be blocked and washed.
Its the Curlique Blanket from Oat Couture knitted in Debbie Bliss cashmerino aran. It was a fantastic knit, I only had to pull back one section and that was down to me not concentrating, Its turned out a little larger than I though but if I manage to knit nothing else for Peanut I have managed this 🙂 I highly recommend it as a pattern, its a perfect answer when knitting blankets of there not being huge amounts of unchanging rows.
This week seems to have been a little busier than I expected, me and Andy went to the National Theatre on Tuesday for his birthday treat, thankfully because of the Travelex season they have it makes it as cheap as going to the cinema these days. We saw A Matter of Life and Death based on the Micheal Powell film, it was amazing, don’t go expecting an exact copy of the film its a musical for a start but it is also a lot darker, I would highly recommend it.
Yesterday I went to see my midwife, this didn’t go to well, although me amd Peanut are fine, I am getting a little frustrated with the whole system, I know I am whinging again, Iknow that midwifes are over worked and I also understand that billions of women have given birth before but I haven’t, this is my first child and the only thing that os keeping me vaguely sane about it all at the moment is the fact that I have some good friends who give me advice. No medical staff seem to be interested in the fact that I now can’t walk to the doctors as it is just that bit to far, or that I am having trouble with my Iron suplements (although I have a three month supply of Spatone), or the fact that I haven’t done any ante natal classes and so on and so forth. Don’t get me wrong all the midwifes and consultants I have met at the hospital have been wonderful but I just seem to be left to it a lot, I am not sure what I expect but I am paranoid in that same way any first time mother must be, all those strange feelings that you will never have experienced before, I know its not only me after talking to someone else in the waiting room who seems to be having the same experience, so I guess I am kind of on my own reading everything I can get my hands on and talking to everyone I know:) Ok moaning over.
Knitting wise I have finished a hat for Kisiizi and am concentrating finishing the cardigan.
