The black hole called Bobbles.

First of all lets talk about the boy, this is how we see him most days whilst he is walking from room to room, apparently Eric quite likes it and is often half asleep whilst he is carted up or down the stairs.  The boy adores the cats and needs to cuddle one most of the time.  We saw the specialist last week and his fatty liver is slightly improved, looks like it might be a long job.  But it is improved no matter how slightly, the boy has improved his diet and is walking an hour a day behind the Castle and beyond!  So it is all good. 

I made a pair of Fetchings (free pattern on Ravelry) and a matching hat for a special lady’s 80th birthday

my Mum loves this pattern because they seem to keep her fingers warm and she doesn’t have to take off her gloves to get money out of her purse.  So I hoped they might be a suitable choice for a birthday present.

and I also made prawn vol au vents as my dish to take to her party, there was some really nice food there, a great time was had by all.

I made a pair of socks for a local lady copper (police woman) who has been nicking her husbands socks (that I had made) because they were so warm and cosy.  I thought I had better make her a pair before she gets into trouble with the law.  Apparently she just loves how they fit in her boots and the way that they keep her toes toasty warm.

I am nearly at the end of my cardigan that I started a couple of years ago. *cough*

and have been bobbling at all times of the day and night.

No matter how much time I spend bobbling I don’t seem to get any closer to the end.  I am on my last push for the next few days.  It is completely driving me bonkers that I can’t get this cardigan on my back and everything else has been left to one side, until this is finished.  

Normal service will be resumed, just as soon as I have finished the bobbles.

    What a productive lady you are. I also love the hand knit socks. My Mum knits mine, they're quite amusing as I get all the left over yarns from other folk's gift socks. Dark grey toes, purple heals up to orange stripy ankles, love em! Good to see your boy is improving, slowly but surely…

    So glad to hear that your son is getting better, albeit slowly. Any improvement is better than no improvement!!You really are very productive with your knitting. Since we moved, I'm struggling with mine. I've been knitting the Bohus 'Wild Apples' and I'm down to the last few rows of the body to be finished and I just can't pick it up!!
