I am still knitting up a storm!
Well, I’m still knitting…
The extreme knitting rug is growing:
But it is hard work so I only do a few rows each night (yes I am a wimp!).
I have also started another knitting project – another cardigan for Flo, this time a sparkly one:
Yesterday Flo and I popped in to Taunton as I had a bit of shopping to do and I suggested we try and get her some spring/summer clothes. She has some stuff from last year that still fits but not very much as most of her clothes last spring and summer were those that still fitted from the year before!
We were in Debenhams and I had selected a dress, a pair of trousers and a skirt for her which she said she liked and we were heading towards the till when she stopped and said ‘I like that dress’ and selected one off one of the rails that I hadn’t noticed. It was, indeed, very nice, pretty without being impractical and a good choice so I added it to our selection. This was the first time she had selected something herself. For the last few years I have always selected things and checked she liked them before buying her anything but this was her first, spontaneous ‘I like that’ moment in a clothes shop. My little girl is growing up!
I will treasure the moment as a significant one in her growing up but I also realise that it means the mother/daughter ‘you are NOT wearing that!’ arguments, whilst not imminent, are now, probably, on the distant horizon!
