Now, no laughing, it's a very easy block pattern that's knitted up to the head and then back down to the toes all in one piece. But if you use your imagination (I've no black wool for the eyes, nose or mouth yet), can you see something that might possibly resemble a little teddy bear? He's not very big, only 7 inches tall, but I think he might turn out to be rather cute. Some people have used different colours for the feet and body so they look like they're wearing shoes and a jumper, so I might do one of those next.
It was Greek day for Thomas so off he went in his costume this morning. His school have recently started doing a 10 minute run/walk every other day. They finish their morning lessons a bit earlier, all the children and teachers pile out into the playground and they can either run or walk a couple of laps, then official playtime starts. Thomas had me in stitches showing me how he had to run because his costume was so long and tight.
Oh, and can I just add that only 5 children took in pizza bases so they didn't do the craft they were supposed to. Annoyed? A little, but life is short so I'm moving on.
I felt Amy had a good grasp of the situation when she said "it's the in thing at school to have a label. Half the girls in my year have something wrong with them, which isn't really right is it, because it's not fair on the people who really do suffer with things". Couldn't have summed it up better myself.
An easy tea tonight, lasagne made from several left over portions of spag bol that was in the freezer. I just layered it up with the pasta sheets and white sauce and hey presto. No salad tonight. We've been naughty and had sweetcorn and wedges although I should point out these were between us, not just my portion!
And tonight we're watching Happy Valley. Didn't watch it last night because Mark wasn't here and he enjoys it. I do like Sarah Lancashire and hope Last Tango in Halifax reappears at some point.
Might cast on a couple of teddy legs as well while I'm watching it.
