Creative Friday and Knitting a Panda


We’ve had a very busy week, Caiden cut his arm open on a piece of metal on our chalk board and needed seven stitches, our GP was amazing and had him stitched up in no time at all, it’s still a little painful but getting better everyday. His stitches will come out in 10 days. I managed to put my back out and had to visit our wonderful chiropractor yesterday and now I can almost move around without too much pain. I’m actually so relieved that it’s already Friday… Richard and I are going to go training tomorrow for our 30km race on the 1st of February. It’s my frist big race, I’m rather nervous but if I can at least finish, I will be happy!!

News on the designing and knitting front is that I’ve finally started knitting up a Panda pattern, they are such gorgeous animals and I’m looking forward to how this one will turn out. I’m so grateful to all the knitters who have already offered to test knit him, so I will post regular updates for when the test knit will start .

Have a wonderful weeked ♥
