Long Weekend

Well It's the October break so I've decided to take a couple of days off work and chill.

Dad update:
Spend last weekend at Dad's bedside. He went from being on the large O2 mask onto the smaller one and then finally onto the into nose one. He was on Monitors, syringe antibiotics and and bagged. By the time I left he was moved into the General medical ward and completely off all monitors. By the middle of the week they took away his bag and he was getting up to go to the toilet himself. SO things are looking great.

On the way to Inverness on last Friday some guy in a Landrover Discovery with a loaded trailer plough across the road and totalled my car and the car behind me. I wasn't a happy bunny.
Oh well I'm perfectly Ok and that's Ali that counts.

I put a post on NEEPS with all the stuff I've made lately. Go have a looksie Latest Creations Didn't realise how much I've made. Most of it has been crochet.
I've still got one of my OWS rnd 38 swaps to complete, it's really late, but I've told them all my difficulties and promised that it should be in the post on Monday. It's one of those situations that it would have taken me the full two weeks to make anyway and with all the diving up to Inverness I just haven't had the time to complete it.

I'm Working on my 12" CAL blanket. Only 3 months left to go. This is what it looks like so far:



I'm also swapping for my friendshipghan and these are the squares so far. This is so going to be my blanket.



I've also been receiving heaps of swap goodies.
This is the fab stuff I got from Snowday in my first Ravelry swap.




I also got some great chocolate, red crochet hooks and a felted lapel pin. Although I think I've lost my hat to my OH he thinks it's fabulous.

Happy to hear your Dads health is improving Cazz!

Your swaps goodies are fab, but then again so are the things you've made in exchange too : ) Loving the neckwarmer and mitts with the sheep motif : )
Wish i had carried on with the 12" CAL, your blanket is looking great!
