Granny's Favourite

It's a well known fact my mam is awesome knitter it's also well known that she is fast. I try to request things for Martha that are a bit too tricky, fiddly or if they are knit in pieces from my mam, she's a perfectionist when it comes to knitting and basically I'm not. 

So this is Martha's latest knit. In Sweet Pea colour ( one of Martha's many nicknames) and Granny's Favourite pattern. 





Martha was very interested in the buttons

 
And thought it was great fun to give it a good tug! 


Ive mainly been working on gifts for friends my lovely friend had a beautiful baby girl on Friday so after knitting her a little grey number I am now in pink mode. 
I have just finished another little neutral baby number for my friend who is due next week. These babies are coming thick and fast lol. 

Back soon

Knitting plans.

Today it is cloudy and a bit dark and oh so cool. I have to say I am glad. So as my little head has thought Oohh winter. I thought I would share a few pics of things I'm going to make Martha for winter. 


I really like the colours and nice to have a change from all the pinks. Will have to consult with my mam as to her knitting winter Martha plans but I'm excited. 

I have finished my gift knitting for now so I have got back to finishing Martha's vertebrae cardigan


Pinned her down for sleeve measurements. 

I have 3 garments on the go at the min. 
Neon, Vertebrae and Antler so need to get going on them. 

I made it to knit night last week and with the help of my friend Gwen I cast on 3 pairs of socks from toe up so they are all started one has the toe done which is the 2nd sock but the others are all new. 

Trying to power on with Martha's cardigan and will get going on mine. And then pick one to start for Martha. She's still just a little dot so need to see what will fit. She has a narrow back so lots of things are really big for her, planning needed. 

What are you planning on making??

30

So yesterday my lovely hubby turned 30. 

This is what we got up to.

I decorated the house late on wednesday night.



Martha loved daddys balloon.



I got Rob 30 of his favourite chocolate bar!
He was a bit chuffed.


Martha loved climbing on all the presents and playing with the paper. 


I stitched Rob a Back to the Future coz its his favourite film, many a afternoon nap time has been spent on this lol. 


We headed to a local park for a mini picnic and stumbled across a sports day. 


we sat under a shady tree and ate heart shaped sandwiches, well martha did. 


lol this photo does amuse me. 


During nap time we sat in the garden and did a bit of reading before it got too hot and retreated inside, still last year i was so hot and pregnant i fell asleep for 3 hours in the afternoon lol.


We headed to Rosie's Dinner in Kirkstall for a early dinner with robs family. 



martha loved as gorgeous as ever in her party dress. 


The restaurant had some good themed bits. 



Hubby had a giant burger as he does every birthday. 


and a big bit of chocolate cake. 



Martha then cooled off in the garden before bedtime.


Rob got lots of lovely garden bits and here are a couple in action last night. 



We now have a few more days off together so we are heading to the cinema later and then i am gonna really dig through my scrapping stuff, i have been having a bit of a sort and so far got left over half used sheets of thickets, mini alpha sheets, i think i will sell my project life left over page protectors i have, i have bags, tons of stamps, journalling type/ PL stickers, I'm not sure about punches yet but hoping to have a good sort and maybe put them on ebay while rob is off.

Back soon

Scotland part 2

On the Wednesday afternoon we were due to leave as Rob was at work the next day, but as I had to go back up to my folks that weekend said it made more sense for me to stay. 

When he drove off i was super sad and felt like Baby on Dirty Dancing when Jonny drives away lol. 


but the blue skies still shone. 


My dad when to play golf so me and mam went to play at the park. 


You can't tell from this pic but my mama ankles are a very angry shade of red. 


We had fun playing on the grass and took 1 million pics of martha sat here. 




She was super cute, this is one of my favourite outfits from Boden. 


She does like a good swing. 


We headed back for tea



And then bedtime. 


The next morning we headed back to the beach. 


Not before a quick bottle of milky. 


We went to the park first while she was awake and happy. 


We played on a big swing. 


As did Grandad. 


And headed back to the gorgeous beach. 



I had somehow forgot to bring marthas sun hat despite having 3 with me. But her Muzzie tied round her head did a great job and she kept it on. most surprising. 



I managed a very sneaky row on my current WIP. 


We headed back to the 'house' and had another quick swim and watched the sunset. 


Next day we were all packed up and managed to squeeze into my dads car, not quite sure how though. 



Bye Bye lovely holiday. 


The journey home was long so we stopped here on the A66 for a little break.


It was super cute with cute animals. 


And a giant Rabbit, it had a cute gift shop where i picked up a a few things. 


We arrived back late afternoon, we had a lovely time home and I love all the fab photos and memories we have. I really must get some printed.
