Knitter and New Mum

A keen knitter and stay at home mum of Keira my little angel. I spend my days looking after her, shopping for her, cleaning up after her and in between all of that knitting and cooking and looking after my lovely husband Justin.

Looking for Jet!

Well here is Keira at 4 weeks! much more exciting than any of my knitting projects but not as relaxing! She is much more alert and wakes about 1am and 4am for feeds and is doing much better.... I am also doing much better letting her cry a little in her basinette and giving her the dummy to settle her off to sleep!

We spent this morning hunting down a ball of Jet in Colour 7 - does anyone have any scraps of this? I am finishing sleeve of cardigan, pattern said I needed 9 balls, I've used 11 and run out of wool!!!!!! oh my I've been to spotlight, kmart and sent hubby off to lincraft in city - I don't even care about different dyelot just need it to finish jumper!

anyway! its keira's christening this sunday and I'm still finishing the shopping and have to handwash her little matinee jacket which is 30 years old (and worn by me). I am hoping all my guests will help out with food and drink and the day runs smoothly!

I'm also going back to weight watchers next week as my bad habits must stop as I've put on weight since leaving hospital not lost it! uh oh!

This is how Keira sleeps!

Ahhhhh a nice quiet moment with keira down for a nap! peace! This is how she falls asleep, no swaddling of her arms thank you very much. We were back to the doctors this morning for her golden staf but she is ok and apparently we all can have golden staf on our skin without being sick???? interesting.

Today we posted another of the debbie bliss baby cashmerino beanies off to Keira's cousin Will who lives in Hong Kong. We splurged on some baby cashmerino wool and it came up lovely! Of course I was in such a rush to post it this morning before he heads back home that I didn't even take a photo but thats the 3rd beanie I've finished and I'm proud I have the time!

Must go and do some washing now! If someone can tell me how to add links to other blogs that would be great!!!

Trendier than my mum!

I have now realised Keira always looks better dressed and co-ordindated than me!!! my clothes are now an afterthought so I have decided (after watching a few episodes of what not to wear) that I need to organise wardrobe to make picking outfits easy!

Keira has been up most of the night but now sleeping happily! I managed to get half of Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino beanie done for Keira's first friend and hope to have it done this week in between finishing my last uni assignment -a poster to teach year 3/4 students how to write an information report!

well today is visitors day with people deciding today is best day to visit us and meet keira - tim tams are out and ready!!!! but I can't wait till 4pm when I might get a wee nap before night shift starts! my lovely hubby is back to work tmrw so back to reality this week!

Settling technique required

Is there a magic technique to settle my little one!!!! we did have a good night with Keira only waking twice but its the getting back to sleep that kills us. we rock, pat, try a dummy, pick up and put down and when all else fails leave her for 3 minutes then pick up again!

she is now peacefully asleep and I managed 1/2 hour of knitting on my jo sharp cowl neck sweater for my mum! I am too lazy to take a photo of my progress as just getting online each day takes some planning!!!!

I did manage to make a big veggie lasagne last night complete with cheese sauce and a spinach and ricotta layer so life hasn't totally stopped! But I must cut down on my biscuit consumption and daily dessert of a mini apple pie and ice-cream - it will be taking its toll on our waistlines!

We're home!

Well we are home and learning to adjust to life with a new member of the family - who keeps us up, poos a lot and requires a lot of washing, walking, hugs and settling! I am typing and rocking the bassinette right now with my foot and hoping she falls asleep soon.

Here is little pic of her on our outings to the mall as we are just going through sheets and outfits faster than expected and thank goodness my lovely husband is doing the clothes, dishes, groceries and driving me everywhere! who knew what a catch I had! plus he gets up after her last morning feed at about 4am and settles her!

I managed to do 2 rows of knitting last night and still haven't had time for any day time naps! I am trying to make a beanie for my friend's bub and want it done by tuesday - could be too ambitious!

thank you everyone for the lovely comments and had hoped to reply personally to you all but just getting online has been a major achievment!!!!!
