It’s one of my regrets that we never really properly celebrated Mother’s Day while I was still living at home…we probably did like, flowers and stuff, but I can’t remember ever putting as much effort into it as I have while I’ve lived in London.
This year, I have excelled myself with a sewing caddy, pin-cushion and needle case, all made while I was unwell. Not only did I manage to do these for Wonder-Mum‘s Day, but I also did two for my Gran’s, who share the same birthday (next weekend). They were all posted on time, and she received it this morning. Unfortunately I was unable to go home, and wasn’t even able to call her because my phone is currently dead and I am for some reason unable to get a new one. (Don’t even get me started on Customer Service today). Anyway — Happy Mummy’s Day to the bestest and loveliest mummy in the world (in my honest opinion!)
I’ve decided to be brave and cast on a cardigan of some description in green aran which I have had sitting on top of my wardrobe for the last two years. I haven’t decided on the pattern yet — I will definitely be checking through my books and magazine archive to find something there if I haven’t found something on Ravelry. Does anybody else have any ideas? I want it to have cabling with a relatively simple pattern otherwise — kind of Nordic/Swedish feeling without any colourwork (I don’t want to have to buy more yarn and I don’t have any other aran).
I don’t have a photo of the colour at the moment, but I will get one when we get home — I’m still in Kent, about to go to the folk club with the boys to spend an evening making music. Normally I have some knitting with me, but I was hoping to spend the night playing a new iPhone which never materialised. (Did I mention: stupid Customer Service!)
We’ve brought Tommy the Dog home and the flat is going to seem very empty without him!
PS I wrote this yesterday, but didn’t have access to high-speed internet to upload the photos so I had to delay publishing by a day!
