I thought I would take the time however to post this pic of my man and mutt...aren't they a pair? I haven't been feeling a 100% lately and they have proved to be quite the tonic. I love them both to bits.

I knitted some baby socks the other night whilst watching one of our dvd rentals. The name of the film escapes me..some terrible chick flick with Jennifer Love Hewitt in. It was bottom of our internet rental list so of course it was the one they sent!! I guess that was my moany old nag of the day..back to my socks!! The lilac ones are to match the baby cardi I not long finished. Having lots of red DK I then used the same pattern to rustle up some little Xmas stockings. I'm thinking of stitching names on for Maisie and Adam as it will be their first Christmas. You never can prepare too early for the festive season..it creeps up on you before you know it, don't you agree?

On a happier note Gavin has decided to embark upon a adventurous feat. The daft sod is going to abseil off the Forth Rail Bridge in aid of Chest, Heart & Stroke Scotland. It's a charity often sidelined but very close to our hearts as Gavin's mum has suffered from strokes in the past. I'd be most grateful if you'd take a look at his fundraising page..you will at the very least get a laugh at his cheesy photo.

My wee pal Maisie (aged 5 and a half months) loves her cardis from Auntie Lou and has been the envy of many at Mother & Toddlers so I'm told. I knitted one for one of her playmates and got a lovely card and photo of baby Finlay sporting his new knit (with lovely kind words from his mum).
New nephew in law Adam born 31st July received little baby cardi and beanie hat..hope it fits!
I also just found out yesterday that one of my best and oldest friends is gonna have her first baby in March and is welcoming the knits. Congrats Joanna and Hugh!! Fab news!
Not much stuff to nag about as all is good at the mo and not letting anything get me down. I even managed to visit my mum today for a few hours without it spiralling into the usual mutal nit picking. She had looked out some patterns for me, I think she reckons i have gone baby cardi mad too and suggested I try a jumper instead, haha.
Anniversary today..Fiance Gavin and I have been engaged for 3 years. He bought me some pretty earrings. I didn't get him anything...ooops!

We were (my other half and I) at little Maisie's christening yesterday. She looked like a little doll and watching her made the hour and 20 min service almost bearable..almost.

This is my very first blog and I am blogging blind here! I don't know what I'm doing or what I'm going to write but I'm sure once I get going there will be no stopping me.
I guess I should perhaps introduce myself..I'm Louise, I'm 32 and live in Fife, Scotland. I live with my man and my mutt..I dunno who's more demanding but I love them both to bits!! I live my life at a somewhat sedate pace these days due to a few health problems. I've become a mad knitter, always clicking away with my pins but alas my skills in this area are somewhat limited. I'm hoping perhaps this blog thang will put me in touch with more knit-wits like myself!
Anybody out there??
