Captain Oates

Housewives Tarot

Like the good Captain, ''I am just going outside, and I may be some time''. 

I just popped in to quickly let you know that it is half-term, and because I know no fear, not only is Mini Diva's BFF here for the day and to sleep over, this afternoon we are going to collect one of Destructo Boy's friends and his little sister, and all head over to the park.

Wednesday the children are going out with Belo for the day, Thursday Mini Diva is out at a friend's house, Friday Destructo Boy is at a 5 hour football coaching session, during which time I have Secret Plans for Mini Diva before she goes to a friend's disco party in the evening.

How this all fits in with MIL's (so far) present-less birthday tomorrow, I don't know  - I have the pattern, the yarn and, to DH's utter disbelief, some new circular knitting needles. 

What he didn't believe was that I have so many pairs already yet still lacked this particular size (3.50mm). All I have to do is sit down with no other distractions and nothing else to do and knit like a fiend. Uh-huh, that's so gonna happen.

Oh, and I have signed up for a KAL for eskimimi's latest pattern, Mrs.Tumnus; fortunately, that won't start until half-term is over, thus giving me time not only to wind the yarn, but to catch my breath ....

Pop by later in the week and see how - or if - I'm surviving ....


  1. How funny - i almost bought some 3.5mm tips the other day because it's one of the few sizes I don't have in my KnitPro set. I managed to find a fixed bamboo set so i'm using those :)

  2. Don't know about your MIL, but I do not mind waiting for hand-made objects :) What do you plan on making with it? :)

  3. Go go go! I love that your DH is shocked by the needle purchase, not that you are taking all this on.

  4. I'm confident you'll survive ;-). I think you're a fighter...

  5. Hello there! Do уou κnow if they make any ρlugins
