It started off quite cold but pleasant this morning , which was good as I had to take a sickly DS1 along with me while I dropped off his younger brother at school. A nourishing hot chocolate later and a wee trip to the Charity shop took a lot out of him so back home to curl up on the sofa, while I got on with the house work. All too soon I realised we needed the lights on in the house , and then I looked out and saw the darkening sky and the first drops of rain.... then it became torrential!
And it hasn't stopped all afternoon!
Took DS1 to Doctors who promptly prescribed a course of anti-b's , lots of liquid and rest .
Still , his appetite is still good , you know what they say, "feed a cold and starve a fever" .
On the knitting front , managed to knit a couple of kids beanies for the Blythswood shoebox appeal , and got DS2 to model them. Unfortunately we have since misplaced the camera so will post photo's at a later date . I will say though that he did look fetching in the deep pink hat (pink is his most hated colour!) .
Have been making some wee sock project bags and knitting totes to sell at the local craft fair , which takes place in the Gamble Halls in Gourock on November 13th . I have never done a craft fair before so this should be interesting and hopefully fun . I think I may also knit some kids beanies , as Kimmie has been knitting up some gorgeous adult hats and beanies to sell , and I just know they will sell very quickly .
To cheer November up I am going to make a post every day for a month. Its a busy month , so at least most of the posts will be interesting !
If you like to crochet , here is a link to a crochet Poppy pattern , all money goes to the Poppy Appeal , appropriate since Remembrance Day is in November , Remembrance Sunday being 14th . If you are not on the knitting website Ravelry , its worthwhile signing up as it contains a wealth of knitting and crocheting patterns (some free) as well as other related information AND it doesn't cost anything .The above pattern is only £1 .
Off to make dinner now , and then perhaps get on with sewing up some more totes!
