October 28th is now a very important date to add to our family diaries. On this day little Verity entered our lives in person.
What can I say? Everything and absolutely nothing. No words can sum up this occasion.
It was not an easy ride and for a while a very scary one for baby and mum. However, we are on the mend and we are all getting used to new stuff.
On my needles? Possibly a few baby knits(??!!!) and just maybe a few more in the pipeline?? Knitting for a small person is such a wonderful activity. Anticipation in every stitch. Choosing colours now we have met her, choosing patterns, yarns and needles. everything done in small!
I have also been knitting like mad for my upcoming Christmas craft show. I want to take my knitted pouches and cardigans alongside the yarn. Where energy is a limited resource these days I have to learn discipline,(often lost in translation to life), to be realistic about what can actually be achieved in a day, rather than what I desire to be achieved in a day. Between the 2 is a rather large gap.
I look forward to handknitting in the evenings. Peaceful, repetitive, soothing. It is my comfort habit.
Autumn this year has been spectacular. All the fire colours lining the fields. Glorious. Exciting. Inspiring.
