Done !

According to my DH, I do not have pneumonia or anything else serious, I am merely behaving like a man and displaying attention-seeking behavior via my 'sniffles'. It makes no difference that 4 year old Destructo Boy appeared like a benevolent ghost at my bedside at 4 a.m this morning offering me a cup of water that he'd tootled downstairs to the bathroom to get all on his ownsome, because I was coughing so hard I'd woken him. But I did get breakfast in bed yesterday, so it is just a case of re-educating DH so that he clearly understands that I do not appreciate tough love at all, and that it endangers his continued existence.

In spite of this, I have cast on for a vintage pattern baby matinee jacket, in this, in that color too; it is 100% courtelle, so very soft, yet machine washable. This is destined for Mini-Diva's class teacher, who is still currently able to conceal her bump from curious young eyes under winter sweaters. However, we had several days of sun last week, bright sun and a brisk breeze today, so she will have to tell them when the weather warms up and the layers come off.

'What's this ?!' I hear you mutter 'Didn't she say she wasn't going to cast on for anything until that dratted cot quilt was done ?'

Yes, I did. And - triumphant HA ! - I merely wait for DH to tell me his brother's address and it is going in the mail this afternoon. It will be lovely and warm, good for lying Baby on the floor on too ....

The fleece fabric on the back is rather cute, if I say so myself, and I do like the utilitarian aspect of it being reversible.


  1. It's lovely! Hope sister in law appreciates all the effort that you've put into this for baby
