That moment when …

your husband answers the door to the courier who is delivering your latest unauthorized purchase!
“Another 10 balls of yarn!” he says “don’t you have enough already?”

This is not just any 10 balls of yarn; this is 10 gloriously green balls of merino cotton double knit that is destined to be my first hand knit cardigan.

Wish me luck!

Another Finished Object, Another Elijah

P1020131

Elijah is finished, just in time for the arrival of Baby Button FJ (yes, it took a few days because Mummy and Daddy couldn’t agree but he now has a name).  I delivered Elijah to Baby FJ on Sunday and got my first squishy cuddle from him.  I’m hoping to get lots more of them.

Immediately Daddy compared Baby FJ’s Elijah to Little H’s.  FJ’s is larger despite the same needle size and very similar yarn so my knitting must have relaxed somewhat over the last three years.  Daddy noticed my pattern alterations and approved of the curvature of the trunk that I have added.  Mummy placed Elijah into the Moses basket.  If baby FJ loves Elijah nearly as much as Little H, I will be really pleased.

So I don’t have anything on my needles at the moment.  I’ve got so many ideas I can’t decide what to do next.  My Elijah obsession might need to take a holiday – there aren’t any babies on the way.  Then again, I could just make one for stock!
