Sending out an SOS!

Hopefully the title of this post is self explanatory, I need help!

Here's the story, I really want to knit Angus a sweater for Christmas, I've been looking at patterns for a couple of weeks and came across this on Pinterest

Cute right?! But can I find a pattern for it, not for love nor money! So here's where you come in lovely blogging/knitting people, do any of you have a pattern that is similar to this or would work? I have wool in these colours and just think Angus would be so gorgeous in this. I'm not too worried about the scalloped coloured part, I would be happy to do a plain band.  And also I need it to fit a 12 month baby. But I would really really appreciate your help! There may even be a reward!!!!

So now I leave it to you, (please,please, please help!)

Wip Wednesday #28

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

I'm afraid I've not much to show you this week and not much time but didn't want to miss another Wednesday!

First Wip - Baby

This is one of the rare moments Angus has smiled this week. We are teething at the moment, there are at least 3 top teeth coming through so understandably Angus is not at his best! This was him trying to chase mummy, his favourite game at the moment.

Second Wip - Baby Blanket

As you can see not a lot of progress here just half a white square, I have discovered since photographing it though that my squares don't line up! The pattern said to make each square 13cm and really I should have counted how many rows this was but I didn't and I'm not going to now, it will just have to be uneven! Hopefully it will work in its favour, what do you think?

Third Wip - Circular

I don;t want to say too much about this as its a gift for someone, but what I will say its that i am very pleased with it! I should have it finished soon but the reveal will have to wait until it has been received as a gift. I just hope they like it!

Well that's it for me today, linking up with the lovely Tami
I will also be linking this post with the following blogs

Busy, busy, busy!

Keep Busy

You know when you have one of those weeks where you never seem to stop, time flies but your not really sure what you did or what you achieved?! Well last week was a bit like that for me.

We attended a friends wedding on Monday, which was amazing, it is always lovely to see to people you care about tie the knot! The wedding took place about 3 hours from us, so we stayed overnight. This was also lovely, it was our first night away from Angus and it was really good and really hard. He was fine, he was with his Nana and they had a great time! I missed him though and spent most of the day talking about him! Yes I know I've become one of those people you avoid!!! I'm hoping I'll get better, the more we leave him. But he was always at the back of my mind and as much as I enjoyed the time away from him, I really couldn't wait to get back to him. So then most of Tuesday was taken up with saying goodbye to friends from the wedding, driving back home and collecting Angus.
On Wednesday Angus and I went to an ice cream parlour in the morning with some mummies and babies and then in the afternoon we had some friends over to ours for a playdate.
I was working Thursday and Friday, which always passing quickly and then I was out on Friday night with some mummy friends for cocktails and then Saturday was a slow start (The cocktails had a lot to answer for!) and then we did some gardening and went to the park.
On Sunday we spent the morning doing boring but essential things like pay bills, order food shopping on line, make plans for the month and then in the afternoon we went to another of Angus' friends 1st birthday parties!
And here we are on Monday again. I had no time to blog or knit last week and I really meant to I just seemed to run out of time. Here's hoping this week will be a little more relaxed!

What have you been doing? How do you find the time?

Happy Monday xx
