:: Good Morning!::
(early warning......this post contains LOTS of exclamation marks!)
(I am ever so slightly excited.)
It has been a special week for us in the Tickety-boo house. It was my babies Birthday on Tuesday and he was 8 years old?! Can't believe it! He is still a little bod really and is no hurry to grow up, which suits me just grand. I was able to buy my first shop bought Birthday cake for him and take some stress off myself from the many weird and wonderful shapes I have been asked for in the past. It was also my Birthday yesterday and I was........... well I'll settle for thirty something! I was chuffed to bits with the lovely messages from you lovely people on Ravelry and lots of lovely cards from my friends and family( oh and a cake at crochet club). I must say I have been a very lucky girl. I have had the most beautiful gifts. The time and thought that went into them means the world to me I am honestly touched and emotional to think that I am cared about that much. That may sound like a self indulgent thing to say but I mean it sincerely. I am truely blessed.
So shall I share some pics of my lucky girl gifts?
Soooo excited I just can't wait for them to arrive!!!
Which leads me to the slow but sure sock progress. Now known in our house as
"The Sockgate Incident" on account of my language turning in to that of a Squaddie when I had to do the heel flap (those effing socks)! Oh man it was tricky. How can you end up with cicular needles the wrong way round???? You don't know?????No nor do I! I had to take all the stitches off onto another needle the put them back on the right way round.
I know I've done it wrong too BUT my self created method has given quite a cool effect with the stripes.
