Big Sis and Lil Bro Matching Socks

It's been quiet on the blogging front while but not so quiet on the home front.

Health scares for the other half and finding out and sharing with family and friends that I am pregnant (due in July) has taken up a lot of time. T is well and recovering and we are slowly adjusting our lives for the impending arrival of the new baby. All the big tests are done and the new addition is healthy, as am I.

O is over the moon and can't wait to have a little brother.

I decided to give in to her requests and make her a pair of stripey socks - she now wears a ladies 9-10 so this was not a small undertaking. They always look fabulous, but she and we are just as excited about the new matching pair for the bub. All set to go.

It made a complete change from knitting squares and bunts. The blanket is still awaiting space for sewing up. The bunts have been delivered and along with about 100 others is destined for the Easter show display. I managed to complete 9 before returning to the striped socks. I have now moved on to a matching striped vest (for the bub).
