Just stopping by...

A high speed update tonight since life is incredibly busy!

The wedding is only 2 weeks away so I'm finishing the last minute details for that (the bridesmaids are still shoeless) and we're moving house next week.

I've managed to do a little crafting in the meantime although nothing is finished, I've started my christmas knitting, and I've got to hurry up with the baby cardigan since baby Evie has arrived. It's a good job I'm making it to fit a 3 month old really!

I'm also excited because I've ordered a copy of Teeny Tiny Mochi Mochi by Anna Hrachovec, so that I can knit adorable mini amigurumi things.

And tomorrow, Ben and I are going to meet a pair of kittens who will hopefully be joining our furry family.

Very happy right now :)

Life's gone mad!

Life's got pretty hectic lately:

The wedding is just 4 weeks away so we're trying to chase up late replies to invites, sort out the finer details of table decorations and so far the bridesmaids are still shoeless.

I have a new job, which I'll be starting when we get back from the honeymoon. It's as night nurse in a nursing home.

We're having to move house, the landlord has asked us to move out because of our pets....the same pets they agreed we could have 4 months ago. We've found a lovely new house where we are allowed our current pets and also have permission to get Misty bunny a friend and to get a cat. That means that we'll have to move either just before or just after the wedding - we've opted for before so that we can relax and enjoy our honeymoon without having a move hanging over us for when we get home.

So sorry for being all quiet on the blogging front for a bit.

I have been doing a little knitting in amongst all the chaos, I finished these fingerless mittens for the Craftster End of summer random swap:

They were my first attempt at magic loop and the first time I've tried anything that couls possibly count as lace. I love the mock cable pattern and it was incredibly easy to do!

I'm trying to get some UFOs (unfinished objects) finished to clear the way for christmas crafting, but I also have a house to pack up and wedding arrangements to finish....aaaaargh!
