Hi Annette :D

Wow, well done for taking maternity leave - my last childminder took two weeks off after having her 2nd child and it all caught up with her after a few months!
Knitting is a very addictive thing isn't it, I've been at it solidly since being pg with Edward and I start twitching if I have to put the needles away lol

What WIP do you have atm?

I needed to take maternity leave for me! Benjamin is my first (and only) child who took a VERY long time to conceive, so I needed time to adjust to being a mum, but also work out a short enough time to have my regular children return, so I am having 1 term off, oct half term to feb half term.

As it was I was in no fit state to be working as I was actually supposed to be working the day after my waters first went, the day Ben arrived and the day after. Then we were in hospital for 9 days. That hasn't stopped all the children coming round and me going round to their homes for them all to have cuddles.

At the end of Feb that's when the chaos starts - I have 7 perhaps 8 children starting back at different points in the week - hence maternity
leave :lol:

I'm guessing WIP is work in progress - I am knitting my first pair of longies in a cream, green, brown multi colour merino wool - need to get knitting as I haven't started the legs yet!
