I've been trying to spend as much time with Keith as I can, especially since he can no longer work in his shed for the cold.   So I've taken up knitting again as its something I can do while I sit with him at night.  What have I made, not a lot, I'm not a fast knitter but here goes......

One moebius scarf which is supposed to have only one loop (I managed to get three!!).  It was the first time I'd tried knitting from both sides of the cast-on stitches.  I bit tricky at first but easy once you get going. 
Two cushion covers, one got pulled out as it was too big for the cushion but the other one is okay.
Three matinee coats for my goddaughter's baby which is due officially in March but will definitely be delivered early.  Julie has problems bringing babies to term due to her high blood pressure and kidney problems, pre-eclampsia has meant early deliveries for her other children.  It was her and her twin sister's 40th birthday at the beginning of the month and she wanted to announce the sex of her baby at their birthday party.  The hospital she had her scan done at made her a cake which showed the sex when it was cut into.  Her cake had blue icing in the middle - so guess she is having a boy. 
You can see the cushion behind the matinee coats.  I have made three the missing one is identical to the multi-coloured coat but in plain white.  Not sure she will want the multi-coloured one but it can always be donated to the premature baby ward.
I have received a few postcards, I won the postcard lottery so will post these later.
We are off to Seahouses on Friday for the weekend.  Marc and Alix have booked a cottage for themselves and as there are two bedrooms are taking us with them.  Not quite sure how Keith will cope as he is exhausted most of the time now but so far not a lot of pain.  He's keen to go though and I'm sure we'll all enjoy the time away.

Knitting is a nice way to keep one's hands busy, I find. Hope you and Keith enjoy the weekend.
