Mothers Day

Hope all the mum's out there had a lovely mother's day and if you are not a mum, then you told your mum or other special women in your life how much you love them.

I went to Geelong and took mum out for lunch, a special mother's day lunch at the Grovedale Hotel, it was delicious. Champagne, three course meal, rose for all the mum's (myself included!!), lovely piano playing in the background. Hmmm, notice how I mentioned the champagne first, yikes! It was a lovely afternoon.

I am blessed to have four beautiful step-children, two dogs and one cat, all who look to me as a "mum". I am also blessed to have a mother I love with all my heart. And her best friend (seen below in the carousel shot) who I think of as a "second mum". I am very lucky.

I wanted to feature one of my beautiful stepchildren in a special page. I love this photograph of Miss T and I. How lucky I am since day one with Mike, the four kids have been loving and kind and supportive of me and our relationship together. They are a credit to both their parents.


Credits here.

And Lynne, without further ado, here are some knitting pictures!!!! At long last. Do they fit with your textured knitting KAL? The socks I knitted mum for mother's day in Collinette Jitterbug in Zebra colourway, most perfect for the Collingwood supporter in your life, haha!


And this, my friends, is how much of the skein was left over. I only *just* made it.


And, well I don't think mum will ever make a foot model, but here they are in a mannequin parade!


I do so love knitting with these variegated yarns, you never quite know what they're going to turn out like.

Woo-hoo! Knitting! Finsihed! On the blog! Wow!

If you want them to be part of the Textured Knitting count - no problem [although they look lacy to me]!

As for Mothers' Day, mine was quiet. I had dinner out on Saturday at a fine Italian restaurant; Sunday morning to myself and lunch with WM, DD and SIL followed by a quiet evening in front of the TV with my knitting [for mum's 75th birthday]. Perfect!!
