January was a VERY busy month:- 4 family birthdays and the launch of the new Spring Summer Season for knitwear!
A MIRANDA birthday cake was made for my 11 year old and a birthday sleepover with friends arranged; there was much EXCITEMENT over the new ROWAN Yarns SPRING SUMMER 2014 season launch; I finished knitting Kate Davies OWLET for my 4 year old in Knoll Soft Donegal and a RAINBOW FAIRY MAGIC cake was made. I also celebrated my birthday and my 11 year old made a yummy birthday MOCHA CAKE from Jane Brocket’s Vintage Cake Book for me and my dad to share (it was his birthday the day before mine). I knitted myself a super warm rib snood from the Erika Knight Collection using her MAXI wool (pictured above in Mallard).
I also got a NEW JOB which has taken up a LOT of my time, hence the lack of blogging around here recently… its certainly been a challenge to go from being a stay at home mum (which is a full time job in itself!) to working some long hours in a new job with a young family to look after but at least I have my knitting to keep me sane! 😉 and at least I might occasionally have some money to treat myself to some (shhhh….) yarn now and again 😉 well maybe…..
Somewhere in there, I also passed my blog first anniversary and a whole year of being an ambassador for Rowan Yarns.
Hope you’ve been enjoying the warm SPRING SUNSHINE if you’ve been lucky to find some (I’m so over all of that winter rain!)
More catch ups coming soon xx
