Blogs are hard

I do still update on my other blog, but the knitting blog has been left floundering.  

I am still knitting. A lot. And studying! I’ll just leave these photos here. 

It’s a circular table cloth but I’m going to give it to Alexandros as a blanket. I’m using merry go round acrylic by style craft and 5mm needles. 

To begin with it was small

And after the first ball it was colourful and 75cm across!

I’m now onto the second ball and it’s stalling. I don’t want to know how many stitches I’m working with.

Fuck the cold

  
Fuck the cold. 

FUCK THE COLD. 

But now in hat form. My life is complete. I knitted this back in April and forgot about it. I finally wore it for the first time yesterday. People looked at me weirdly. 

The French understand the word fuck in the sexual sense. That’s it.

Made with two half balls of Phildar Charlie. In a grey/beige and green colours. On 4mm needles. Using a free pattern from Ravelry that I’d made for Angela last year.

2014, a new year and a new blog

Baby monster and monster mum

I already have a blog. So why am I starting another one? Well, this is my forth blog, but my last one has just got a little messy. I’m not abandoning it, I will still write there. This blog is for posts that I am proud of. Not my depressing rants and garbage like that.

My mum’s blog is hosted on wordpress and looks much neater than my blogspot. The community seems nicer too.

So who am I? What do I write about? My name is Andi, I’m 20, I’m a young, single parent. I’ve had two sons, my first when I was a teenager at 17, my second at 19, but at the moment I’ve only got my second. I’m from the UK, but I’m living in France with Sandy, and Neil is somewhere with his dad. I mainly write about my parenting choices, and mum things like nappies, and toys. Sometimes I write about knitting or sewing too.

Sandy is almost 13 months old, he’s still breastfed, he doesn’t cry much. And he has a big, fat cloth bum. He’s a very social, energetic little boy who crawls everywhere and gets into everything.
