Busy.busy, busy...

...its been a busy week so far. Monday I had the trauma of signing on. More forms to fill in for my one day's work before half term. But I shall keep on because I get my NI stamp paid for weeks I don't work.
On Tuesday I got loads done at home and took photographs. Winchester is the proud owner of a new jumper.

I have made several jumpers using this pattern. The original is in rugby stripes but all but one I have made in the same colour. And the cricket pattern is a different one altogether.

Biddle usually wears one for a while and then passes it on to someone else and eventually borrows it back again! I used to knit for children and grownups but my wrists are not what they were and I haven't got the patience to knit big garments.

I have finished Joy to the World

and found a backing fabric I thought would do.

Tacked it all on and then found something I think is so much better in my stock of fat quarters.

So I was already to do the finishing on Wednesday... but the phone rang and I had a day's work at a local school. It was a really good day, year 6 children and I taught without having stop to sort out behaviour. Such a treat.

Tia is exercising her right to climb.

I am home today and will catch up on what did not get done yesterday. Thank to all of you who post comments.

Update Friday: its all finished I am really pleased with the result.

I love your Joy to the World finish and the backing fabric you've chosen. Looking forward to seeing it all finished.

Winchester looks very smart in his new jumper:)

I like your second fabric choice, too. I'm glad you couldn't finish though, and that you had a good day. :o)
