The most ill-advised walk ever...

I thought it was a great idea to get out, but hugely underestimated the length of walk.  Three toddlers cried most of the way round whether in arms or on foot, and by the time we got within sight of the visitor centre two mamas were nearly in tears too.  *sigh*

So that's where I've been!  Our visitors went home today, and poor baby has slept all afternoon so we have obviously exhausted her being so busy.  I'm sure our guests will need a week to recover, too.  ;)

    1. Thanks, San. It put me back about a week - I was so close to normal and I'm just now starting to get there again. I had NO IDEA how far it was going to be! Silly mistake!

  4. Looks like an exciting week. Also love the cardigan the little one in 'Octonauts, Indigo and friends' is wearing. x

    1. Ashleigh knitted it for Connor, from the indigo dyed organic merino. It's this pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/little-hipster-cardigan (I just went and looked it up on her Ravelry)!

    2. Yup, it's a very cute pattern, in Aran weight yarn, with loads of different sizes. Nicely mind numbing knit, with no seaming, ticks my boxes. And I'm glad to see its not too *ginormous* on him, like I was worried about (knitted the age four, and up a needle size to accommodate the super squishy thick Aran that Sarah stocks for the three year old). Happy smiles. :)

    1. It's getting there, but it was a stupid situation to be in! I shouldn't have been carrying two with my back as it is, but Martin had his arms full of the other toddler already. :(
