I have conquered my Nemesis!
The school sweaters are done. They have actually been finished a week but today is the first opportunity to photograph them without them being covered in paint or breakfast.
The five minutes snapping in the garden was great fun. Oriana loved it though her brother was a little more reticent.
Both Oriana and Inigo are happy but, not as happy as me as I can now move onto something else. Woooohooooo!

I have just looked at the counter on the side of my blog and I have just had my 16002 visitor. Such a lot of people have come to visit and I am really touched. So I have decided to have a give away not sure what exactly but something special and made by me. If you would like a chance of winning the said something, please leave me a comment to this post and I will draw a winner out the hat on the first of April. Thanks again and good luck!

Last summer Oriana and Inigo grew out of the school sweaters that I made many years ago so being a good mummy I asked if they wanted me to make them new ones. They didn't. They wanted bought ones, the same as their friends. I breathed a huge sigh of relief, rushed to the well known clothes store beginning with M for the said sweaters. This was good, no scratchy utilitarian yarn and more time to knit things for me. Then the snow came. The complaints rolled in, the bought ones weren't warm enough. They weren't as nice as mummy's and really it was too bad mummy had bought sweaters when she can knit and should have made them. What was I to do, the guilt trip worked. I ordered the yarn all 1200grams of it and started knitting. Two backs, two fronts and last but not least four sleeves. I have to say I am feeling less than enthusiastic about the project but I will keep going, trying to be a good mummy and keep my children happy!
