A few minutes of 'Me' time!

This afternoon, this happened (this would be a photo of Arthur sleeping in the buggy, just in case it isn't obvious!)...

...and amazingly, this is what was happening at the same time! It doesn't happen very often that they are sleeping simultaneously in the day. A treat for Mummy to have a few minutes of peace and quiet!

I managed to knit a few rows of Rose's 'Sunday Sweater'... I LOVE this pattern by Ginny from Small Things, it's written So clearly and it's such a pretty pattern. I already think I may be knitting this in another colour!

It's the first time I've knit with Cascade 220 and so far... I'm impressed! This pale pink colour from the Heathers range looks beautiful when knitted up and it's lovely and soft, not to mention excellent value!



  1. Such a beautiful sweater. Love the pink. Glad they both slept at the same time. I know that is probably really rare. Hope all is well for you.

  2. Its beautiful! I'm only just learning to crochet, maybe I'll take up knitting next!
    Congratulations on your "me" time, I always found it made me a more refreshed and optimistic mommy when I got some down time!
    Have a great rest of your weekend!

  3. I remember the days when I had a moment of peace when both kids sleep at the same time. Pleased to hear you made the most of it and knitted this lovely sweater. I absolutely love this colour. One day I'm going to learn to knit. Wishing you a lovely weekend xoxo

  4. Oh! Those quiet moments are few and far between. I am glad you took them as knitting time. All too often I am guilty of taking the those moments to clean the kitchen and do the laundry. Must remember to leave those things - they can wait - and take some moments for self and sanity!! Thanks for the reminder.

  5. Ooh I remember what those snatched moments were like! Cramming as much as you could into them, before you were once again 'summoned'; glad you spent yours doing something you love, even if it was for someone else ... Rose is going to look adorable in her new woolie, a beautiful colour.

    Love the ribbon twined around the basket handle too!

    Love Claire xxx

  6. Ooo syncronised sleeping... such a rare phenomenon ;) loving the cardi you are knitting. Lovely wool too. xx

  7. My how I love those soft, comforting colours of yarn in your basket.

  8. What a gorgeous shade of pink! Looks so soft too. x
