We dont usually buy gifts, we just give each other a card.
It's the same card we have had for the past 10 years. A really lovely card which we save and put into a new envelope each year. It's not being mean, just being thrifty!
When i was in the supermarket last week passing by the valentine things and thinking to myself "I wonder how much of this stuff will be left on the shelves this year with the current economic climate and people short of cash to buy basic essentials" i spotted the little heart shaped frying pan. DH does love egg on toast and it somehow hopped into my trolley. It certainly started our Valentines Day off with a giggle this morning when he came downstairs to see it on the table and he went off to work with a smile on his face.
Amy dropped off the wool for Isabelle's cardigan and i made a start. Isn't that what nanny's do? Grab needles and pattern and drop everything else to get cracking on whatever the family wants?
Do you do the same?
It really is a lovely soft yarn, Amy made a good choice. King Cole Smooth DK in fuschia pink the label says especially soft for babies. It's knitting up lovely and quite quickly too. This is the pattern. The edging frill is a killer to do, it takes ages but does look so effective when it's finished and the cardigan is being worn. Isabelle has had lots of lovely comments when wearing the one i made before.
While i had the camera out i took a snap of my new wool for MY pair of socks. It's gone into hiding in the wool cupboard after i took it out of my lovely knitting basket to put the new project in. I also have some other deadline stitching projects to do this month, so it might just have to have an extended holiday in the cupboard for a short time.
Wishing you all a very Happy Valentines Day. Did you receive a lovely card or gift from the one you love?
