So I decided to take the opportunity and cast on a new little something. It needed to be quick, easy and destined not to fail and I don't think I've done too bad....
This is the kids seamless sweater pattern by Shellee Floyd. I really like her designs for kids - simple, not fussy and no seams! The yarn is Panda Concorde which I got for $2 a ball at Big W - not too bad for $6 I say. I cast on 70 (pattern is for 60) because I'm such a tight knitter and I also added a few increase rounds into the body because Charlotte still has quite a pot belly. I could have gone up a needle size but I haven't washed it yet so it might grow a bit yet. I'll definitely be doing more of these and I've got some Bamboozle in the stash which quite likely will become one of these. Next time I'll make the body a smidge longer and a smidge wider to accomodate the big belly.
On the uni front all is travelling well. I'm actually in front with my assignments because we're off to hospital on Monday and I know I won't get any work done while the little miss is off so I've tried to do a bit in advance. I actually feel like I'm on top of things at the moment. Prac is going well. I'm really enjoying it and the last 2 weeks I feel like I've found my feet. Thank goodness!
On the family front - we're off to the snow on Saturday and then a family lunch for Fathers day on Sunday. Monday we're off to surgery (well Charlotte is, I'll be pacing the hall at the hospital), Wednesday is little misters birthday - I can't believe that he is going to be seven. Where did that time go?? Thusday is an integration meeting to talk about Izaak and his future schooling - there is a possibility that a place is coming up at the Autism unit but I'm not sure if I'm going to move him or keep him where he is happy, well accepted and doing really well. Charlotte has finally gotten the hang of her spacer as well so medicating her has been heaps easier in the past few days. It feels like so many things are coming together (in a positive way) at the moment - I hope that it can last a little bit longer. Fingers crossed.
