Thank You

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone that has taken the time to leave a comment for me. I really appreciate your kind words and thoughts, it means a lot to me to know that people are thinking of us. I am doing OK actually - I truely feel that it just wasn't meant to be and I would much rather the pregnancy end earlier rather than later and although 15 weeks is quite late, it's not so bad really. I know that we will have another baby soon and all I can do is hope that all goes well next time. I am so grateful for all that I have, especially my wonderful husband and fabulous son - they are the best and have really got me through this. I know that there will be good and bad days, in fact it seems to be that there are good and bad hours, but things will get better and I'm staying very positive about the whole thing. It could have been so much worse and I'm so grateful that it wasn't. Everyone in the hospital was lovely and in fact the hospital was lovely - we had a private suite with our own living room and bathroom and it was so much better than being in our local hospital in England - Pembury - which is frankly a poo hole - that is where I had Jacob and I was out of there as quickly as possible - I could quite easily have stayed in this hospital for a few more days, it was like being in a hotel !

So, on to knitting - I am now steaming along quite nicely on my pink dream - I have finished the body and am just about to start on the sleeves. I bought a lovely blue t-shirt the other day and I am currently having a bright orange linen skirt made and I'm thinking these three items together will make a stunning outfit - well if nothing else you'll be able to see me coming !

I have to say that I really did not enjoy knitting the bottom part of this cardy on circular needles - I found it really hard work and very slow indeed - since I've switched to straight needles for the upper part of the body - progress has been much better. Only problem is that I find DK cotton quite hard work to knit with it does seem to make my right elbow ache. Still I can't wait to get this finished - unfortunatley I won't be able to wear it for a while as it is currently 43 degrees C here - I'm coming back to the UK on 30 June though and I'm preparing myself with thoughts of thermal vests and wearing my cosy knitted cady. I hope it isn't going to be too cold when we are back. It's more Jacob I'm concerned about - he really feels the cold now and is always making me turn the air conditioning down - so I think he is going to need lots of layers when we go to Blighty.

I have also made progress with Ballerina - I'm half way through the second sleeve, but I forgot to take a picture, so you will have to wait with baited breath for that one ! I find I need a break from Ballerina every now and then - it is quite a slow knit, especially since it's on circulars, although I have to say 3mm circulars are much easier to handle than 4mm - who would think that a mm could make a difference, but it does - I don't think I'll be attempting anything above 4ply on ciruclars again.

Right I'm off - got to sort out my clothes - I'm in a funny place with clothes right now - I'm obviously not going to wear maternity clothes - that would be too depressing, but my normal clothes are a little snug - I'll manage.

Pink dream is looking lovely and I think the outfit you described will look great.

Thanks for stopping by and saying hi, do you still have my email address? Oh and I am definately not a pink girl but I have always liked the way pink works with black, which is why I chose pink wool on my blog. Well maybe somewhere in my inner being there is a pink girl trying to get out!!!

Hi Becky,

I'm so sorry to hear your news. I'm certain Jacob will be quite the comfort to you over the next little while.

I love your Diagonal-Front Jacket's color! Yours looks just like mine only in a different color. In fact, I just put up an entry this morning on my progress.

Where are you right now? I'm wondering because you said it is 43 degrees C.

Take care of yourself and hug Jacob more than ever!
