Having learned what it is, I am now blocking my various knitting projects.

The gilet is coming on well, though I've not done any for a few days (hoping, perhaps that the teeny cardigan will be needed before the gilet which is for E's birthday in 2 weeks!), and my other project on the go is (another) cardigan for the bump!  I just couldn't resist this gorgeous pattern from my Little Speckled Chicks Sirdar pattern book.  It's a super-quick knit, and I'm just on the borders now, having started it on Sunday.  Having checked my gauge before hand this time, it's nice to have a sufficiently 'newborn' looking piece of knitting!

I'm doing the little cardi in Sirdar Snuggly DK in the shade "Blush Baby".  Lovely!

As I was photographing the pieces pinned out above, I was admiring again my beautiful calendar that I was given for Christmas.  I've loved my Mum's calendars for the last few years, and this year we were lucky enough to be given our own.

It's produced by the immensely talented Ed Collacott, and every year they are just spectacular!

In other news, I recently happened across this beautiful blog by Aimee.  It has some fabulous patterns available, a fascinating blog, and some very thought-provoking writing on faith and marriage.  I highly recommend it!

Wishing you a lovely week.
