This moment

{this moment}
A Friday ritual. A few photos- capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

Knitting and Reading

At the moment I am knitting Warriston by Kate Davies.  I had the wool as a Christmas present and have only just got around to knitting it.  I know it seems mad to be knitting such a thick jumper at the start of spring but I decided the other night that I needed a jumper for the evenings when we are camping this summer to keep me warm.

The book is one I picked up from Waterstones bookshop this morning so I haven't actually started it yet but hope to this evening when I go to bed which is when I do most of my reading.

Easter Holidays and Chicken Pox

Josh finished Pre-school last week for the Easter holidays and then Monday morning we got up and I noticed some spots on his front near his neck.  Well as the week has gone on the number of spots have increased.  Oh well, better to get chicken pox while still young but still not much fun.  We have been bathing him in peppermint oil and rubbing in aloe vera gel when he allows (it tickles me!).

Being fairly housebound, apart from taking the dog out, has meant we have had the chance to build houses and get some knitting done.  The latest project is Flair which I am knitting up for Great British Yarns, my local yarn store.  Also on the needles is February Lady Sweater, the idea was to start this in February but it didn't happen then or in March.  I haven't actually got very far yet but will take some pictures in due course.  Do you like my new stitch markers?  I bought them this morning - a little Easter present to myself!

Hope you have a lovely Easter weekend.
